You know what they say: the grass is always greener on the other side. And living in the bustling big city, this is quite literally true in my case. When you’re at the epicenter of entertainment, you often long to retreat to the serene simplicity of nature. (The fresh pine scent! The awe-striking, picturesque views!) That’s likely why I’ve recently become quite enamored with the rustic aesthetic. The idea of turning a room in my home into my own personal woodland hideaway—filling it with tree trunk-shaped stools and warmly finished, wood crafted tables—is a frequent daydream of mine
Whenever I want to scope out great, rustic products I head over to Wayfair. They a have a top-notch selection of charming, cabin-style furnishings ranging from tables and chairs to delightful decorative additions. I love this character-rich solid oak bookcase of theirs. With its slim, lacquer-finished tree bark-style bordering and natural finish body, this unit would prove a perfect a home for books in the handsome, forest-themed reading room of my dreams.
I’m also a sucker for great decorative trinkets. After all, what helps establish a living space’s theme better than well-curated decorative additions spruced throughout?
For a hint of authenticity, I’d opt to top a fireplace or workspace with this stunning shelf. Beautifully crafted from your choice of basswood, walnut, butternut, or red cedar each of these shelves is unfinished and decorated with unique wood graining and furrows that give it a gorgeous natural appeal.
This covert storage canister is also a favorite. You can rest this raw wood design on a fireplace or counter top to elevate the ambiance of your room while using it to charmingly conceal extra living room accessories. And any enthusiastic nature lover will be happy to know that this gem is wonderfully crafted from reclaimed wood.
Even when you can’t redecorate, the beauty of the internet is that fantasy is never far away!
