BRING NATURE INDOORS
When decorating, look to nature to add more of a rustic aesthetic. In this case, with a recent wind storm, fallen branches and tree debris gave us plenty to work with. We found long spiny limbs and used a pair to frame the front porch. Michael cut some of the branches and secured them to the railing. We attached a few faux crows to the branches and stretched spider webs for a grown-in effect.
Inside in the dining room, we used black-painted branches down the center of the table to add more gnarly, rustic details. Other branches were put in rustic buckets throughout the house in various vignettes.
