Classic meets whimsy in an eclectic hallway of this home in the Hollywood hills. A gnarled driftwood lamp and cowhide rug become even more quirky when paired with a marble-topped antique chest. A pair of petite gold chairs flanks the window, which offers a sweeping view of the city.
Woven white wicker chairs surround the natural wood dining table in this bright dining room. A large window lets in natural light while bulbs in the bamboo chandelier give off a soft, warm light. Table lamps with white driftwood bases add natural texture to the decor and frame a simple two-toned painting.
A bamboo chandelier hangs over the natural wood dining table. Woven white wicker chairs surround the table. A textured table against the wall features two driftwood lamps each with a unique white base. A simple painting adds a touch of soft blue color to the relaxing neutral tones.
The key to making rooms feel well curated and balanced is the proper mix of organic materials. Nearly every element in this room is made from all-natural materials, including the driftwood floor lamps, Belgian-linen upholstery, cotton draperies, rustic wooden nesting tables and aged-brass hardware.
Green walls and a decidedly coastal feel are reflected in the flourishing houseplant sitting on a floating shelf in the dining room of HGTV Dream Home 2013. The driftwood-inspired lamp is a nice natural touch.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
Woven baskets placed underneath the mudroom's console table offer storage for flip flops, towels and other items carried in and out of the home. Photos of beach life hang on the mudroom wall, bringing the coast indoors.
A maple and iron staircase leads to the entrance of the loft area of HGTV Green Home 2011. A driftwood sawhorse table greets below a column of three colorful Yupo paper paintings. Two contemporary buffet lamps provide plenty of light in the space.
The master bedroom was moved to the main level of this Driftwood, Tex., home. White oak floors and ceiling bring warmth to the clean white walls, and the streamlined bed is flanked by matching nightstands and tripod lamps.
Black and white, zigzag print headboards and a trio of artwork are funky, unique additions to this eclectic kids bedroom. The glass-topped table, fashioned from pieces of hand-gathered driftwood, serves as the room's centerpiece and flexible gooseneck lamps aid in reading or homework.
Chris mixed modern with traditional to create a transitional design style. He paired a tailored, button-tufted, 1960s-style sofa with an ovular, bronze and glass coffee table that has more traditional lines. For rustic, masculine texture, Chris opted for end tables made of driftwood with glass tops. A pair of mid-century modern table lamps added a touch of the unexpected to the space. Altogether the furniture arrangement came to slightly over $2000. After searching for art, Chris couldn't find anything he connected with and instead had a professional photographer shoot his collectible Cutlass convertible, and then had it framed as fine art.
