How to Introduce Reclaimed Wood Furniture Into Your Home August 12 2014, 0 Comments
Reclaimed wood furniture offers an entirely different design detail to a space. It is rustic yet industrial -- and often modern, yet traditional. Reclaimed wood comes with its own naturally acquired patina and character you will not find with other materials. When you introduce reclaimed wood furniture into your home you are adding a touch of history and intrigue while making your story all the more interesting.
Eco-Friendly Urban RustArtist Starley Bullard-Moore works with reclaimed materials to create stunning, unique and inspired furniture and decor. She refers to her style as urban rust. Starley's Northern California shop, located in Capitola, Calif., is in close proximity to many excellent resources for salvaging reclaimed wood and metal to create one-of-a-kind home decor and furnishings. Materials are sourced locally from wineries, factories, farms and wherever demolition might have occurred in an effort to reclaim materials she can then re-purpose into lovely home furniture and decor. Starley's approach to create art and custom furniture can work in any number of ways in response to the inspiration she receives from the materials she discovers. The result is one-of-a-kind decor items that can be used in a number of ways.
Art for Art's Sake
One of the most important elements of any design scheme is the finishing touches we add to create depth, interest and texture. These finishing touches are found in accessories, wall hangings, tables, shelves and even mirrors. Reclaimed wood decor falls into the category of finishing touches; you can use it in a number of ways to complete a room. Starleys work offers whimsical details, rustic respites and industrial intrigue -- depending on what speaks to you. Her work can be used as a center piece on a dining room table or as a complementary piece of wall art next to an impressive fireplace mantle.
Most people participate in an unconscious collection of art when decorating their home. Using reclaimed wood decor can become a driving force behind your collection, making it almost addictive to look for new pieces to add to your home. This decor includes anything from small occasional tables to inspirational wall art and home decor items designed for entertaining such as Lazy Susans and relish trays.
