How To Decorate With Natural Materials…

That’s My Letter

One of my favorite things about doing this blog is seeing how creative other people can be and finding new inspiration for home design.  In keeping with the Spring theme I started looking for natural decor; bringing the outside in.  Before researching this post I’d seen the tree branch center pieces and wall art made with wood but look at this amazing piece!  It’s an IKEA circular mirror affixed to plywood and surrounded by wood trimmings.  It’s stunning, right?  Can you see this in your entryway or above your dresser?

I don’t know why this feels so perfect; maybe because it’s a bit like camping in the comfort of your own bed.  I love that trendy, in regard to this design, also happens to be free.  This is really beautiful.

This piece is a nice mix of modern and organic and on top of that, it would be so cheap to put together!  A wood or metal end table painted a bright color with wood trimmings attached to the surface.  I’m sure this could be done for less than $20…I might have to try it this weekend!

Are you inspired to head out to your yard and start gathering branches yet?  An electric chandelier created from tree branches might be difficult to create but this…so beautiful with the hanging tea light holders and strung up with ribbon. Simple and gorgeous.

This is a basic cube with wood trimmings and branches affixed to the outside with an added glass topper.  In a white room this is again a really nice mix of organic and modern.  In a city home or apartment where having a tree in your yard is a luxury (I lived in Philadelphia for a time and the view out of my bedroom and kitchen window was a brick wall) this is a perfect way to bring the outside indoors.

The centerpiece above was clearly set up for a formal event but I can easily see one of these being used on a family dining table.  Gathered branches displayed in a large glass vase and small hanging tea light holders is all you would need to pull this look together.
