Branching Out

It’s not often that you can incorporate the Pottery Barn look into your own home without breaking the bank.

Well, never say never – the latest Pottery Barn catalogue is chock full of natural DIY touches that are absolutely F-R-E-E.  That’s right – zip, zero, zilch, nada.

Here are my two favorite looks from PB – can you spot the free, DIY element?

You guessed it – aren’t those branches stunning?!?  I can’t decide which photograph I love more – the first picture screams “fall” and demands snuggling up with a good book at a cabin in the woods, and the second photo is wintery and glamorous with chunky knit pillows and mercury glass vases.  Swoon.

The moral of this story is that with nothing more than a quick walk around the block you can grab oodles of free goodies to adorn your home – and it’s guaranteed to look totally chic.

Here are the natural arrangements that I whipped up for our home with nothing more than clippings from our front yard:

    Home decorating and yard maintenance combined! I really like the direction of some ofyour recent posts where they give us down-to-earth, possible, and inexpensive ways to achieve a terrific look. I really like the two toned rust and green branches displayed near your fireplace. I’ll bet they look especially wonderful with your new pillows on your earth toned sofas and rug. Great idea to freshen a space and add some drama!

    I love the fall foliage look best! Hopefully some of our leaves will start to turn soon so I can do this in my den, too.

    Hope you have a great week, Liz!
