Decorating your home with the natural things that you find around you....
If you have to decorate your home only with the natural things that you find around, how would you go about it? Do you think you could make your home look as interesting as any other ?
Myself I would go for a lot of road kill items so many people throw things away that are useful, they may be a little shabby but that doesn't mean that they can't be fixed up. The computer desk that I am sitting at, at the moment was actually placed on the foot path ready for the council to pick up, now this normally would have ended up at the scrap yard or as landfill, I had to purchase a few bits and pieces to put it together again but with a respray it is now a piece of furniture that not only looks nice but is functional as well. Most of my home is full of junk that I have done up, and people always compliment me on how nice my home looks.
I would use things like twigs and branches spray painted to match decor colors. These look really nice in urns, vases and planters in any room.
It dosent matter much what you have..what matters is, how you present that !
Yes, presentation counts more ....since i love nature so is my home.. decorated in simple natural ways...plants, flower pots, aquarium, pets & their living arrangements ...these are a few things that find my extra attention...and in turn bring to me many applauds from my people!
Since I live at the beach now, shells and driftwood are wonderfully abundant. There are clear jars and bowls all over the house filled with the best specimens. When I lived inland, I used a lot of pinecones and twigs.
When we lived in the country, we had a 200 acres of forest. I also had a garden and grew grapes. In the spring, I cut young branches of vines off the grape vines. I twisted them into circular shapes resembling wreaths. From the forest, my children and I gathered pine cones. Hundres of them in all different stages of growth. We sunned them for the summer so as to allow eggs to hatch and insects to remove themselves from the cones.
In the fall, we gathered colored fall leaves and conifer branches. At the end of September, we set to work.
We created grape vine wreaths by glue gunning the pine cones and conifer boughs. To add color, we tucked in some of the red, orange, yellow leaves. We also collected different types of berries on their branches and attached these to the wreaths.
We still hang these on our front door during the winter season.
