Birch branches are great for adding height to an area and also creating a more architectural look. For a masculine approach to holiday decorating, combine birch branches with cedar and pine cuttings in a rustic vessel or ice bucket. Here, a vintage camping container adds a touch of woodsy plaid to the organic arrangement.
Spice up a blank wall this holiday season with seasonal stamps on an arrangement of beautiful birch slices. Cut up a variety of different sized birch branches and arrange them into a rectangle. You can glue them to a board, or use temporary adhesive to attach them directly to the wall. Use acrylic paint to stamp the larger pieces with your favorite seasonal stamps. You can buy stamps or create your own by carving potato stamps.
Interesting details come together to create a fun, whimsical space in this transitional yellow dining room. Birch branches displayed in the corner, mismatched lighting and cute rooster art all work together to add charm to the space. A bright area rug brings in color and the six-person dining table blends wood and metal for a rustic/industrial vibe.
Glowing tree canopies above the dining space create a sense of both intimacy and relaxation throughout the restaurant. The mounted tree branches coordinate beautifully with the walls, which are lined with alternating white birch and yellow pine trees.
In this modern terrarium, floral designer Laurel LeMaistre used a combination of natural found material, such as birch bark and swirled branches along with petite orchid plants, and polished river stones. Orchids are a staple flower for all modern design, and their simplicity and longevity make them a perfect choice for terrarium work, says LeMaistre, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers.
