FORAGING IN NATURE

I have received an abundance of requests with regard to branches and how best to adorn our homes during this time. The best advice I can offer is to take a pair of clippers and step outside your door. Nature is our greatest source of inspiration always but particularly right now. My favorite part — even the dried out, fallen, or dead branches offer life to our homes, imparting both a sculptural and textural quality. And it’s free! Go on and forage in nature and see what you can find.

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Trim your branches and smash the cut edges with a hammer. This allows water to absorb into your branches and prolongs their lifespan.
  • Spin your vessel or walk around it as you arrange the branches so you can really get a 360 approach.
  • Remember that these branches are a piece of nature that you are brining into your home and thus are imperfect. Embrace  asymmetry and do not cut them all to be the same height.
  • Branches can look equally as beautiful once the leaves have dried out.
  • These branches are thirsty! Make sure to water them every day.
