Wood Around The World


I just love looking at wood. It is very aesthetically pleasing to me, and I love the sense of serenity it provides. I love interiors that are highly decorated with beautiful woods, wooden floors, wooden beams, I love fireplaces, and wooden objects. There is just something about wood that I am really attracted to. It might be part because I am an Earth sign, who knows.

With that said, here is a series of photos of woods I’ve captured across my travels.

  1. Aha! Another person drawn to the beauty of a woodgrains in timber! My home has evolved with my love of timber objects, interiors and furniture to look like a Norwegian mountain cabin!! Yet I still can’t get enough of wood. I always look for more. As for the photos, great collection. I think the Austrian door is amazing and the wooden coasters…. of course. What kind of tree are they from, do you think?

      • If you really want a home like that, it will happen. The decorations in my home have evolved over the last two to three decades. Occasionally you will see a little bit of my home here on my blog. Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment.

        • We move all the time, that’s the problem. So we usually don’t do many changes at all to wherever we’re living because eventually we’ll probably move again. Seems to be a pattern in our life. But I still have many years to settle in a beautiful home 🙂
