The Wonder of WOOD

BY CAITLIN RAGAN

Wood is an essential element and building material for farmhouse style. But why? Part of the reason is historical: When settlers were moving out West and farming the land, lumber was the cheapest and most sustainable option for building a farmhouse. Now, though, with many other options such as steel, concrete, glass and brick, farmhouse lovers still adorn their homes with wood. In their new book Made of Wood: In The Home, authors Mark and Sally Bailey describe why: “Blackened by time, worn by use, bleached by the sun or smoothed by the sea, timber is a survivor.” Here are some ways you can add this classic farmhouse element to your own home.

Other wooden accents like the dining table and end tables contrast with the metal light fixtures, hardy linen pillows and sheepskin throws.
