Do you love old things, natural things? Driftwood, bird nests, pebbles, branches, swatches of fabric, chipped crockery? Then, like me, you’ll love The Foraged Home, a gorgeous collection of things cast off, aged, repurposed, brimming with story and mystery.

Do you love old things, natural things? Driftwood, bird nests, pebbles, branches, swatches of fabric, chipped crockery? Then, like me, you’ll love The Foraged Home, a gorgeous collection of things cast off, aged, repurposed, brimming with story and mystery. There are all manner of twigs, branches and dried flowers positioned artfully in neutral–washed settings; there are also short narrative vignettes about the interesting people who created these unique settings and possess “the foraging outlook,” as author Oliver Maclennan describes it. (His wife, Joanna Maclennan, shot the photographs.) “People forget that time itself is an artist,” says one subject. “We take our time, enjoying the imperfections and often changing things.”
