Inspired by this weeks The Hermitage, I thought a wee bit of pinspiration was in order to end the week!
I have selected some gorgeous images that really display the variety of ways wood can be used in the home, and the various effects it can create. See how the natural colours and textures of wood can add warmth and interest to your home. From Scandi to Rustic, I think I have covered all tastes and styles!
Herringbone parquetry is still my number one obsession… what style do you love the best?

Letterboxes. Everyone owns one yet it is really hard to find one that is nicely designed and worthy of welcoming people at your front gate.
Letterboxes really are your first port of call. They generally display your house number so are the first thing visitors see as they search for your address. What does your letterbox look like? Does it match your house? Your style?
If you are in need of an upgrade, I have just discovered these great letterboxes by Radius Design Shop. The Briefkasten Letterman III is a brilliant mix of modern design with a touch of retro styling. Made to order, it is personalised with your name and house number. The glass front not only looks stylish but allows you to instantly see if the postie has been, while the fold down front makes accessing the contents easy.
Note to self – Replace embarrassing old letterbox with this asap…
