Taken from old barns and other buildings, and even on site in some construction projects, reclaimed wood lends a rustic and warm cabin-like feel to any space around the home. One of the biggest benefits of “harvesting” wood from old structures is that you can often find lumber that’s no longer available, such as old-growth denser species and species like chestnut that no longer grow tall and mighty due to the blight. Here are some tips for using reclaimed wood in your home.


Keep bedding simple to put the focus on the reclaimed wood. This bedroom strikes just the right balance between modern and rustic, with its concrete floor, clean lines and weathered wood. (Room by Briggs Edward Solomon)

Don’t be afraid to add color to a room with a wood accent wall. Chartreuse adds a great dash of color in this contemporary rustic bedroom. And we love the faux trophies — they add an playful touch. (wood and photo via Stikwood)

Consider reclaimed wood in the bathroom. Annie from the blog Annie’s Blessed Nest did a lovely job on her powder room reclaimed wood accent wall.  And she’s been generous enough to share how you can do it to.



Look to smaller items that integrate reclaimed wood. Some products can add just the right dose of rustic reclaimed wood to your home. When curating our offerings, we were drawn to this table lamp because we love the contrast between the 100% recovered wood fiber base and the crisp white linen lampshade.

Clean white is a great backdrop for reclaimed wood. It lets the wood stand out and become a focal point, but doesn’t let the rough quality overpower the room. This is an especially good way to go in a kitchen where you want things to look, feel and be sanitary.

Have you tried using reclaimed wood at home? If you’ve got any tips to share, please let us know in the comments.

New on DP: The MASH Studios PCH Canopy Bed

MASH Studios PCH Canopy Bed

Oh, canopy beds. So romantic and dreamy. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted a canopy bed but have never found the right one — mainly because modern canopy beds used to be hard to find. In recent years, more and more of them have been popping up and now there are quite a few great options out there. Enter the MASH Studios PCH Canopy Bed (or as I like to call it, the Most Perfect Canopy Bed Ever). Not only is it gorgeous, but it’s made from sustainable, plantation grown, grade-A solid teak coated with a natural, nontoxic oil finish. Beautiful and eco-friendly? Yes please!

I love this use of beautiful reclaimed wood. This is from Flickr member laurasmera. Wait, that name sounds familiar, I’m having serious deja blog right now, I think laurasmera has made it to favorites before. I just hope it wasn’t this image!

Back to the photo, I would never be able to tuck sheets and blankets in that neatly, I love that blanket. Pointing the lights up onto the wood is a great idea…

As you can tell from my lame writing today, I desperately need my morning coffee. Back with more Flickr faves later!
