Reclaimed distressed wood furniture is a style that speaks to several styles of interior decor but is must have to the rustic luxe look. These beautiful barn doors are made from wood salvaged from old Indian Havelis or buildings. An old door table immediately becomes the statement piece when added to a room. For the finesse of the reclaimed wood try a buffet with wrought iron railings and original tiles.
This is a particularly beautiful decoration because the contrast between the driftwood piece and the delicate pendants and necklaces is quite strong and visible. To make such a piece you’ll need a piece of driftwood or a fallen tree branch, some wool or string, a hammer, nails, a ruler, a pencil and a drill. Insert the nails. They will serve as hooks. Drill a hole into the wall and insert a nail to hang the decoration from. Attach the string and you’re done.
Another very useful item for any home is a coat rack. If you want to create something original you can make one yourself using a tree branch or a piece of driftwood. You can either mount it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling or any other structure. Add hooks directly onto the rack or put hangers on it to protect its surface. Make sure it’s big enough to accommodate your clothes and accessories.
Metallics create the modern dimension of this look taking luxe into high fashion. Mirrors encased in old jharokha windows or through accessories like metallic hued fabrics and shiny candle holders. A traditionally inspired silver finished armchair, the Queen Of Hearts adds a touch of luxe classic to the room. This classic stands apart from the more worn pieces and the feminine metallic accessories.The kitchen uses rustic antique manjoosh, an Indian chest on wheels with elephants and peacock carvings as an island combined with crystal wine glasses creates luxury decor, practical yet eclectic.

In this case, the project can go in two directions. You can either make a permanent or a temporary lamp. In both cases you’ll need pieces of driftwood. To make a temporary one you just need to fix the driftwood pieces to the base of a lamp with wire or tape. In you want to make a permanent lamp you can just use glue to keep everything together.
This is a beautiful decoration for the house and a way of introducing a piece of nature inside. To make a similar decoration you need a piece of driftwood, hooks, nails and some air plants that don’t need soil. You should first clean the wood to get rid of the eventual bugs and unwanted bacteria and then screw the hooks to hang it on the wall. Add the plants and it’s done. The plants need either to be placed in water once or twice a week or to be sprayed with water occasionally.
