The Beauty of Natural Wood

In my last blog article, I shared how my personal aesthetic tends to morph with the seasons. In the summer I'm invariably attracted to art with a 'cool' vibe that lends itself to treatments featuring shiny metallics and bright whites. As fall takes hold, I crave cozy: home cooked meals, evening fires and, in decor, the gentle beauty of natural woods.

I am very pleased and excited to introduce Larson-Juhl's marketing manager, Greg Perkins as today's guest blogger.

The core of this trend comes from actual industrial pieces that have been recycled, repurposed and reclaimed, but there are also many newly manufactured products designed to coordinate.
