  I'm celebrating Thanksgiving with my family today so Susi, from Design Shuffle has graciously offered to guest post for me.  She has written a fab post about using warm wood in your home.
I hope you enjoy it - there's some serious eye candy here!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Thanksgiving weekend round-up for you!

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site for interior designers and their work from around the world. We're happy to be asked to guest blog for Nutmeg & Company today. Meg asked me to write about warm patinaed woods and I'm happy to share what I discovered. I love the warmth and aged charm that patinaed woods bring to a room. Look for reclaimed wood used in new furniture or vintage and antique pieces to bring the warmth of patinaed woods into your interior designs. Hope you enjoy this! Thanks for letting me & Design Shuffle visit.

Antique Wood Table

Finished woods darken and deepen in color as they age, giving them a warm patina. Antique wood tables, like this one, beautifully show their age in a warm patinaed finish.

Vintage Wood Design

Vintage and antique wood furniture has a gorgeous warm patina that shouldn't be fussed with. Wax is a good way to preserve and deepen patinaed woods.

Wood Farmhouse Design

Wood counters with warm patinas are so charming in this farmhouse kitchen. There are staining techniques to give new butcher block a warm patina of aged wood.

Beamed Ceiling Kitchen Design

Beamed ceilings add so much architectural charm to kitchen designs. Warm, patinaed wood beams up this charm with their aged, antique feeling. Love the dark beams in this beautiful white kitchen.

Wood Floor Design

Aged wood floors have a warm patina that new floors don't. Using reclaimed woods can give your home the warm patina of aged floors even if they are newly installed.

Patinaed Wood Living Room Design

Warm wood chairs and a farmhouse table with a rich patina create a charming dining area in this cream living space. Warm patinaed woods are perfect for farmhouse style interiors.

Patinaed Wood Farmhouse Design

Mixing warm, patinaed woods with whites in an interior design brings out the warmth of the wood. Patinaed wood farmhouse tables can be paired with chairs in a variety of styles.

Reclaimed Wood Design

Warm patinaed woods look wonderful when paired with other patinaed surfaces like bronze and copper. Reclaimed woods are a great way to bring patinaed wood into your dÈcor.
