i am dying, dying i tell you, to bring some of the outdoors into our decor after testing it out a little with our christmas decor. i don't care if the house ends up looking like a log cabin or the inside of a tree house, the more twigs/branches/trees the better! i think there's something so great in bringing the outdoors in- it creates a texture and a warmth, and earthiness i guess, that i think really makes a place feel homey! like a ski cabin with a fire next to a big pile of firewood. but then again, you can tuck a few flower or leaf elements here and there, and it becomes fresh and springy.
here are some of the super inspiring images i've been collecting... i have multiple ideas conspiring in my brain for on-the-cheap diy versions of these! [seriously, i would probably do every single one if that wouldn't seem weird to my husband]. would it be strange if we made the living or dining room the branch room?
twig with ornaments above a dining table: apartment therapy
twig curtain rod: diy ideas
twig flatware: woolrich [i'm pretty sure i can't diy these, but i love them!]
twig side table: viva terra [unfortunately no longer available, but potentially diy-able?]
completely awesome twig cube side table: re-nest
natural stump side table: west elm [with a how-to by martha, surely this wouldn't be too hard, right?]
hanging or in a flower pot with tissue paper flowers: pottery barn kids [i want to do something similar above my little girl's crib so badly]
totally amazing twig chandelier: anthropologie [leave it to anthro to come up with the good stuff!]
and a ridiculously cool iphone docking station: anthropologie
[it's also good to see that i'm not the only one obsessing on twigs right now!]
