One of my jobs as a kid was picking up branches. We lived on a farm with a grove of trees, so every spring we had to pick up branches off the ground so we could mow the lawn. Though the job was tedious and I always dreaded it, my dad offered us one cent for each branch we picked up as an incentive. It sounded like a great deal at the time, considering how many branches were strew around.
I love the feeling of natural elements inside a home.
Things like fur, wood, and stone create texture and warm up a place making it feel more cozy. Especially in modern, neutral spaces which can often feel sterile and cold. I love the simplicity and pure genius of using branches as decor. They are essentially free and look incredibly effortless. I see a future DIY coming your way!
