Wood beams

There is no shortage of wood beams  (and wood paneling) in our mid-century ranch.  Some days, I adore all the wood.
Other days, I wish everything were a little more bright and crisp.
(And, well, white.)
But these stunning photos have me feeling all sorts of happy...

While perhaps a little on the cabin-y side, the natural light in this living space certainly lends enough brightness and the fireplace stone contrasts nicely against all the wood.

Neutrally stained (or painted, perhaps?) wood beams even work well in this bedroom sanctuary.  Paired with those steel French doors and that glam Ochre chandelier, this room feels clean and sophisticated without at all feeling too sterile and cold.

Wood beams also work well in this white, modern kitchen!
And that little sky light above the island is perfection.

And last, but not least, this one is the most true to our home - wood beams on the ceiling with big picture windows and a stone fireplace.  Maybe we just need a good deep clean and an update on the lighting fixtures?  Oh, and some magical, giant modern credenza to store all things baby/toddler at the end of each day. 

Regardless, these rooms give me hope that wood beams can be fresh and modern as well as warm and cozy.  And that, I can dig.
