Repurposing driftwood into a headboard is the ultimate demonstration of turning found into fabulous. This application is further enhanced by the addition of shells and by the irregular way the boards were applied to the wall.

A couple of decades ago my husband and I went through a midlife crisis and moved to the country. The only parts of this move that were not an unmitigated disaster were: 1) our chickens and 2) the willow headboard Mike built for us from branches he took from our woods. I absolutely loved it and the style he chose defined classic country. What I love about this headboard is the wonderfully contemporary feeling it has. The linear design of the twigs combined with the neutral bedding and leather accents create a simple clean and strikingly modern aesthetic.
Think traditional canopied four-poster bed transmogrified into an eclectic showstopping textural proclamation. The flooring used to accomplish this look travels all the way up the wall and across the ceiling making a dramatic statement; the quote inserted in the middle is the perfect exclamation point.
Mexican sueño. Every night this bed takes its owners if only metaphysically to their favorite resort in Los Cabos. An exact replica of the resort’s bed was custom made by DeMejico. It features solid mesquite hand-pounded iron nails and fabric that was hand made by Mexican Otomi artisans.
