Wood, twigs, tree bark, sticks and other such natural elements which one could find on a forest floor are a showing up all over home decor in unexpected and colorful ways. From home lighting to DIY hooks and other decorative objects, each has a delightful appeal when they remind us of nature.WOOD GRAIN LIGHTING – The simple grain patterns of wood, copied onto a plexi block can add a sophisticated charm to lighting. CROTCH HOOKS – The best in the found object mode of decorating, using the crotch of a branch… seriously is there a better name for it? This just screams with DIY possibilities: find a branch on the ground, break it off short, sand it, spray paint, maybe a coat of sealer, drill some pilot holes, screw it in the wall and voila – you’ve got hooks! TWIG LIGHTS – Here we have a softer twist on an antler light. Imagine how fun these would look in a powder room or down a hallway. BIRCH BARK LANTERN – This fixture is really made with a piece of birch bark, hence the little note on the lantern. Another version of woodsy yet sophisticated, stunning. BIRD FURNITURE – Hmmm, birds on a bookcase or The Birds? One might stumble across a similar group of birds while foraging through the woods. Cool or creepy?
Natural objects or whose which mimic nature can make an attractive addition to home decor. From the craft-like to more artfully designed, nature has a place in the home.
