As you may possibly know, I’m very much in art works made from natural materials such as wood, rocks or bamboo. Just recently I discovered a great material that makes for beautiful art-pieces and furnishings and this material is driftwood!
What makes driftwood stand out from other materials?
I like driftwood art pieces since this is a material that gives any single piece a true one-of-a-kind look.
There is no other piece like that since no piece of driftwood same.
In addition to that, each single piece of furniture or art is really drawing the attention of anyone due to its very unique beauty. I started to collect some pieces made from this amazing and eye-catching material such as the above pictured coffee table which I like a lot.
Now I also discovered wonderful pieces of art such as a driftwood sculpture that will go beautifully with my garden. I’m also looking into accessories for my home such as a fantastic driftwood mirror for the bedroom and maybe a table lamp that would go perfectly with my new desk.
If you’re interested in art made from natural materials you should look at the site www.dorisbrixham.co.uk which I can highly recommend to you. The lady who owns the website designs and crafts driftwood art pieces for many years and each of her pieces is without question absolutely gorgeous. So if you are looking for a driftwood sculpture, a table lamp or a desk should definitely check her website out!

I remember the time very well when I was a little kid. Me and my sister had one big dream: A bunk bed!
Sadly, we never really got one and had to stick to our two “normal” beds instead. That being said, if you have children, consider getting a bunk bed because it can provide many benefits, beyond the “coolness factor” for your little ones!
Bunk beds are fantastic since they allow your children to have more space in their room to play that would otherwise be taken up by another bed or two. They are therefore ideal in all such cases where space is tight.
Fortunately, bunk beds don’t have to be expensive. It really depends on your budget. Yes, you may well spend a fortune on a bunk bed but you can also get lucky and get a good bargain on it.
Today you can choose between many materials the bed is made of. The most common probably would be wood which would go with all kinds of styles so it’s always a good choice. Those bunks beds are also relatively affordable.
Then there are bunk beds made from steel frames and some are even made from PVC or other plastic materials.
Bunk bends for children today also come in many varieties that rang from simple beds stacked one on another to complete “play areas” where some of them may have a certain theme like a Barbie design or a bed/play area with a design for your children’s favorite cartoon heroes. Other bunk beds available can incorporate a desk and chair. Those are better suited if your children are a little older.
With a bunk bed you can always be assured that your children will love them!
