WELCOME TO PARADISE HILL - where wood feels good!

Our passion and speciality is creating beauty from reclaimed aged wood. We are always fascinated by its interesting character markings and rich colourings - ranging from attractive weathered greys to warm sunburnt browns.

It begins with our reclaiming boards from old buildings, barns & fences or collecting wind-fallen pieces on our walks through the forest.

Our method is to carefully sand the boards, retaining lots of patina, but at the same time bringing out a smoothness and warmth that just begs to be touched - our customers repeatedly call this the 'rustic refined' look.

Working with old wood does require time & patience - no two boards are ever alike (and none are straight!) - but the reward is a piece that feels…

WELCOME TO PARADISE HILL - where wood feels good!

Our passion and speciality is creating beauty from reclaimed aged wood. We are always fascinated by its interesting character markings and rich colourings - ranging from attractive weathered greys to warm sunburnt browns.

It begins with our reclaiming boards from old buildings, barns & fences or collecting wind-fallen pieces on our walks through the forest.

Our method is to carefully sand the boards, retaining lots of patina, but at the same time bringing out a smoothness and warmth that just begs to be touched - our customers repeatedly call this the 'rustic refined' look.

Working with old wood does require time & patience - no two boards are ever alike (and none are straight!) - but the reward is a piece that feels warm, earthy, even soothing.

It is our pleasure to design and create new pieces from the old boards - ranging from unique, original gifts such as woodburnt earrings, pendants and keepsake boxes to home accessories such as picture frames, desk sets, mirrors, candle holders, clocks, trays and game boards.

Nature inspires us greatly and many pieces are embellished with exquisitely engraved woodburning designs of nature motifs and delicate hand painting.

Each piece receives its own individual touch, with the intention to evoke a feeling of beauty, comfort and inspiration.

If you are in need of a rustic refined custom piece, please feel free to contact us.

Greetings,
Heidi & Family

P.S.
We live in the Northwoods of British Columbia, Canada. Some days we even see Papa Bear, or Mama Bear with her three little ones stroll by our house - at a respectable distance, mind you.
Most weekends I get out of the woods to play music - original folk, old time and European yodeling...check it out at www.heidimelodicmusic.com
