I was inspired by a piece of art that immediately ignited intense feelings of euphoria. While visiting the Houston Museum of Natural Science with my husband I could not take my eyes off of this piece of petrified wood. I enjoy the beautiful objects that God created and often try to implement natural elements in my home whenever I can. I have used plants, flowers, wood, natural cleaning products, nature images, recycled or up-cycled art. Needless to say, I am still searching for how I can get my hands on this piece of art for my home.
According to Geology.com, Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay by oxygen and organisms.
The bright colored material is hard like stone with rich hues intermixed in a beautiful collage. AHHH! Breathtaking. Well I was so inspired by this art, that I decided to design a bedroom for someone who appreciated art and natural elements as much as I do. Here is a collage of my ideas and I even attached some links of the resources for you. ENJOY!!

Acrylic, Lucite, or Plexiglass is a a solid transparent plastic made of polymethyl methacrylate. It’s 8 times clearer than glass. It can be used in it’s clear state for any purpose. You can also paint it with acrylic paint.
I am truly enamored of all the beautiful furniture and products being produced now with this material. You can decorate with acrylic in almost any decor scheme. It’s non invading and also has a persona of it’s own.
The furniture was introduced in the 60’s and became popular again with the “Ghost Chair”.
Louis Ghost Chair Designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell in 2002
Louis XV Chair
The Ghost Chair was designed by Philippe Starck to resemble the Louis XV chair but with a modern twist. I’m 90% sure that you have seen this chair in person or via social media because it is so popular.
Have you used acrylic/lucite furniture in your home or office? I would love to see it.
