Few things warm up a room better than the authentic patina and rich tones of reclaimed wood. Even a simple panel or shelf brings a unique, natural element to a room — and it works whether the room is contemporary or traditional, adding character and warmth. A table is an easy route to adding a timber note, but why not think laterally and use planks as a headboard or driftwood to frame a mirror? If you want to create a stripped-back vibe, here are 6 ideas to get you started.
