We wouldn’t be going out on a limb to say that “rustic” is all the rage (on Pinterest and IRL). Take the look in a surprisingly modern direction by painting one of its staples (a piece of driftwood) in an electrifying hue. We coated a real 24-inch
“Ghost Wood” branch ($50, jamaligarden.com) in neon “Poison Light” spray paint ($7.75, montana-cans.com), then set it in a serene scene of cool grays and blues for a pleasant—and punchy—contrast. Now that we’ve planted the idea, you might try
sourcing branches, trunks, and logs from a local nursery, your own backyard, or online crafts stores like Save-on-Crafts.com. The result is bound to be a (super)natural showstopper—no burlap or mason jars required.
