First, I am so excited (and SO honored) to have had my back entry featured on Design*Sponge yesterday! You can find the feature here, if you haven't yet seen it :).
Today I thought we'd talk about decorating with branches. I love having fresh branches around in the spring for a few reasons. First, they're free! Just pop outside and cut branches from your nearest tree (if your nearest tree isn't in your yard, make sure you ask first :). On top of free, they are beautiful and completely dramatic. I'm always look for a way to add a little drama.
Blossoming branches, added to a fun container, or even a simple vase, add lovely spring colors.
If you don't have blossoms on your branches yet, you can always get creative and add your own.
See the drama? Love it. I also like how the branches add a natural, organic element to an otherwise very clean-lined room.
These branches made an appearance in our house this week. Each spring I make a point of gathering flowering or leafing branches from our front yard.
There are two types here: the green are from our plum tree and the vibrant red is from our Japanese maple. The Japanese maple was new last summer, and it's a more than welcome addition my cuttings. The amazing red color makes me very happy!
Do you ever bring in branches to your home? What are you favorite branches to display? Happy Friday friends!
