Using Nature as Props and Decor

Using Nature as Props and Decor

I am always looking for interesting ways to make my space look visually stimulating, but also fun pieces for events, parties and birthdays!  Our family loves to go on walks around our neighborhood and often there’s all kinds of debris from the trees losing their beautiful branches. It seems like such a waste, but I decided this time to collect a few and bring them home. Yes, I was the crazy mom hauling three toddlers with an arm full of huge tree branches. But it was fun and totally worth it!

I looked for unique shapes and sizes and came home with a few gorgeous branches. The shape creates the illusion of motion against our white walls. They almost frame pieces that surround them and I love the modern look they bring. You could easily spray paint them, but I loved the organic look they had with all the white and black decor in our home.

These branches have already made an appearance in one of my posts and I’m pretty sure they will continue to for a little while. I placed them in a crisp white and geometric vase. I’m sure I’ll be playing around with placement in our house!

So there you go, sometimes decor can be free and you can find them in the most unlikely places! What do you think of bringing this kind of nature indoors as home decor?

    I’m terrible for taking an empty bag on days out and collecting driftwood and other treasure washed up on the beach, I love that a piece of driftwood on the window ledge can take you back to a nice family day out, although I’m not so sure my partner who is tasked with lugging bags of driftwood back to the car shares my romantic notion as he curses me under his breath, ha!

      I would be too if we lived near the beach! Driftwood is great for decor and all sorts of fun little DIY projects! No shame – I totally understand your thinking 😉

  • I love styling for shots! I used to have a vintage shop and that was my fave part. They look stunning especially with that bench! It’s amazing what pieces like that can do to an overall image!

      Styling is one of my favorite things too! I would love to have a shop so I could just change things up all the time – lucky you! Thanks for your sweet words!!

      XOXO
