Timber Obsession

I adore the raw, organic nature of rustic timber and the authenticity it introduces to an interior when used in unusual ways. Recycled timber for me is a thing of immense beauty - history cannot be immitated; it can only be impregnated over years and years of wear.

1. I love the width of the recycled wood paneling in this image - it adds warmth and accessability to an otherwise stark space.

2. Timber ceilings are a current fave! I can't get enough of them...

3. This timber wall mosaic made from scrap off-cuts is so crude in it's simplicity that I find it absolutely beautiful.

4. Is there anything quite as breathtaking as an exposed timber beam?

5. Kitchen cabinetary made from recycled timber is my idea of heaven... I can literally feel the smooth, waxy finish of the cupboard doors on my fingertips!

I just love the kitchen in the last image. The crates used as draws is just genius.

Hi Angela
The first image and that last kitchen. The wood looks great with the stainless steel. Actually I am about to throw out a dead microwave, but it has a door the same as this and am tempted to think of 'something' to do with it.. now i've seen this, the temptation is greater haha. Have a great weekend .. Julie
