Get Twiggy-Using branches and trunks in decorating

We have been talking a lot about the rustic design craze lately, and a huge part of making a space feel truly rustic is the ability to bring the outside in through design and decorating.  Sometimes this can be easier said than done, and, short of plying up your carpet to create a dirt-floor, you may wonder exactly HOW to bring nature into your home.  One easy way that has been gaining in popularity is the use of raw trunks and branches in furniture and decorating.

Furniture is the simplest manifestation of the twig method.  There are many companies that sell amazing natural wood beds, chairs, tables, you name it.  Like this beautiful bed from La Lune Collection.  Can’t you just picture sleeping in this?

Another more creative way to add arboreal charm to your space is by incorporating it directly into the room itself.

I absolutely love the spaces that use full aspen or birch tree trunks along walls and in corners; it gives you the feeling that you are really IN the forest.

A more subtle, but nonetheless charming way to achieve this effect is to incorporate branches into already necessary aspects of the room, such as banisters, hand rails, light fixtures, or cabinet hardware.

Finally, if you are afraid of jumping full force into tree house commitment, try adding some hints of the woods in different places throughout your home.  Here are a few ideas to get you started:
