Guest blogger

Hi! I’m Joanna, a guest blogger for Arcadian Lighting—a must-shop source for lighting fixtures of all kinds, from wall sconces to ceiling light. Luckily, my days are filled with beautiful things. I spend my time searching on the web for the most inspiring interior design ideas and images. I then share them with blog readers such as you on blogs like Home Happy Home. Thanks Amy for letting me visit with your readers today to share a post about large wooden furnishings. I’ve gathered spaces from many different styles so hopefully you find a least one or two images that speak to you. Enjoy!

A glorious wood headboard takes center stage in this contemporary bedroom. The upholstered inset softens the wood surrounding it.

A vaulted beamed ceiling made of reclaimed wood gives a rustic and expansive feel to this attic space.

Besides being functional, this brilliant yellow wood bookcase adds a pop of color to the space. Graphic pillows pull the color into the room and two retro light fixtures illuminate a little console.

A unique platform bed, made of reclaimed wood, adds interest in this modern industrial space. The cowhide rug mimics the tones of the wood beautifully.

Two large wood armoires flank a fireplace in this Scandinavian style dining room. The wood framed mirror is quite pretty too.

A reclaimed door becomes a wonderful coffee table in this eclectic living room. The sawhorse legs of the table base look weathered as well.

A soaring ceiling and expansive wood floors are the perfect setting for a picnic-style table and benches. Can’t you just imagine getting together with family and friends in this space?

This modern space gets a rustic touch with a massive weathered wood sofa and table sectional. The driftwood lamps flank the sofa nicely.  Images 1 | 2 | 34 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Homearama Cincinnati

Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend the Cincinnati Homearama with my mom and three children. They had six houses this year and since it was the last day it wasn't as crowded as it's been in the past. 

I took A LOT of photos! I am kicking myself for not taking a real camera and only using my cell phone though. Plus I was trying to take pictures without people walking through them and my kids thought it was hilarious to jump in my way just as I was about to take a photo!

WARNING photo overload ahead!

This house was my favorite...

Dining room


Two story family room. I love the fireplace!

breakfast room

Love everything here especially the bench with burlap ruffled cover.

Lower level

wine cellar with pallet wine storage.

boy's room

Kids bathroom with functional shutters over the mirrors.

My daughter and I both fell in love with this little girls room! The headboard is adorable and totally something you could diy. Also crushing on the burlap dust ruffle and the ruffled lampshade.

The master bedroom was beautiful with it's own little sitting area.

Master bathroom

Mudroom/laundry room with dog spa! Everyone should have there own dog spa right?

I know that was a lot of pictures, but now I wished I had taken more.

So many beautiful rooms and great inspiration.

It makes me want to come home and redecorate my entire house!
