Back to Basics – The Beauty in Natural Things…

Sometimes I just yearn for less ostentation.  Less colour, less glitz.  Our magpie eyes are forever searching out the glitter and the pattern, but occasionally it’s nice to just rest our gaze on something simple.

The simple beauty of wood in its natural state.  Without paint or varnish.  The simple beauty of rope and hessian and rattan.  Unadorned and beautiful in their own way.

Do you ever feel that way?
