Why is i driftwood for me?
Remember that driftwood? It has inspired so much throughout my home and to this day I know that going to the beach camping means searching for a driftwood, a color or plant that inspires me. I will find the right spot and make the space feel like an important moment I lived before, a memorable event.
On our last camping trip Frank helped me carry a large piece of driftwood we fell in love with and now decorates our dining table with air plants. I loved we both woke up the last morning to take a long walk and find one piece of driftwood in the sea of hundred. I did see a huge one that would have made the most stunning coffee table. But no space left on the turck! We will be back!
Even in the winter, the feel of the wood translates to the details that say winter. Go get your driftwood dream!
