I love using reclaimed wood. The Lover has very modern taste, with which I can agree. Sometimes too modern, too minimalist equals too cold and barren for me. We compromise by bringing in pieces that show unfinished wood. These below are faves- I love the colors in the headboard (don’t know if I would really write on it, maybe a design?), and the plants are just awesome. Bringing greens, herbs, and flowers to the living area is sometimes just what I need to soften a space.
