Guest Picks: Gettin' Twiggy With It

November 2, 2018

Twigs, branches and logs aren’t just for cottages in the woods — they could be both homey in city lofts and suburban split-levels. Get twiggy with these bits which will get you back to nature, even in the event that you prefer heels to hiking boots. From cheap accessories to moderately priced light into a higher-end mirror you can DIY, you will find something for your home that will cause you to do a little dance. — Laura from JourneyChic

Pottery Barn

Branch House Numbers – $14

New house numbers are a simple and affordable way to update your own entry. I like this set because the ribbon’s clean lines keep the numbers looking fresh and modern despite the typically rustic twig motif.


Branch Mat CB2 – $44.95

Sliced and diced branches stay together (hardy-har-har) in this mat from CB2, which divides the house numbers perfectly. I really like that it is eco-friendly and intriguing. Just do not be shocked when Fido runs off with it.

Urban Outfitters

Branch Hooks, Bronze – $20

I am a big fan of wall mounted hooks. I like to test them out with Command hooks before committing into a hole in the walls, but I think I could make an exception to these branch hooks. They would be ideal in a small or narrow entryway for stashing guests’ coats or your own pet’s leashes. They would also work on the back of the toilet door for the towels.

Greener Grass Design

Roost Birch Glassware – $75

I am not a big fan of holiday-themed glassware, therefore if I will splurge on a set it should be usable all year-long. The delicate branches within this set are lovely for fall, but they also have a frosted quality which can look pretty all throughout the year.

West Elm

Twig Cheese Knife Set – $29

I could make a joke about”cutting the cheese” here, but rather I will explain to you how these cheese knives and spreaders, combined with the branch glassware, equal a classy vino party.


I really like wine stoppers; once surfaced, the cork expands and I practically knock the bottle as I try to shake it back . This pretty and functional stopper makes me almost want to leave a few wine from the bottle. Almost.


Cream and Tan Natural Wood Coasters from The Woodlot – $25

My son has a little love affair with coasters. They’re used as teething toys, frisbees and resources for tormenting the cat. If I’d coasters just for me, I would have them. I adore the rich variation in the wood grain.

Z Gallerie

Twig Candles – Gold – $14.95

With a subtle gold shimmer, these candles are a subtle and pretty rustic touch for the holiday season. I would put a couple of on a mirrored tray at the center of the table to bounce the light around.

Seltzer Studios

Porcelain Branch Candle Holders – $22

One thing about these sculptured candle holders reminds me of the Smurf’s village — at a good, funky way. On a mantle or in the bedroom dresser, they would be a very modern take on rustic design.

Cost Plus World Market

Branch Taper Candleholder Centerpiece – $29.99

A tree branch candelabra brings a more traditional look to the table, but putting it beneath a tone-on-tone neutral table setting makes it seem modern.


Hanging Twig Lamp Handmade Light from The Light Store – $170

With this kind of bland, builder-basic light in my home, I am always on the lookout for interesting options to illuminate my rooms. This handmade pendant lighting adds feel and an interesting talking point to your guests.

Shades of Light

Twig Cage Flush Mount Ceiling Light – $479

Do you’ve got loads of unsightly”nipple lights” into your home? I really do — too many . This ceiling fixture from Shades of Light is a superb choice for appealing to both genders: rustic wrought iron for the guys and shimmering gold for the girls. Nipple lights, be gone!

West Elm

Ceramic Branch Table Lamp – $99

Forget gourd lamps. How about a branch lamp rather? This ceramic table lamp is much more intriguing than the ubiquitous gourd. I would put two to a living room console table or dining room buffet.

Rustic Side Tables And End Tables – $299

I love, love this amazing facet table! Because the legs are so slim, the table is very good for smaller spaces and rooms with fabulous carpets which shouldn’t be concealed by furniture that is bulky.


Branches in Black Belt by Produced by Annabelle – $40

There is something hauntingly beautiful relating to this particular black, white and gray tee pillow cover. Spooky? Perhaps. Versatile? Definitely. The striking image will pop on your couch just as much as a colorful cushion would.

West Elm

Embroidered Winter Branch Pillow Cover – $49

For people who feel at home with beige (c’mon, it is safe and comfy), this pillow adds subtle feel. It would look perfect in my own bedroom in which soothing blues and lotions rule.

Eclectic Mirrors – $295

I would really like to try doing so mirror myself. Grab a simple frameless mirror from IKEA or a home improvement store, gather sticks while doing regular lawn cleanup, spray paint them (or leave au naturel) and put that hot glue gun to do the job.

Rugs USA

Bashian Greenwich Fantasy Ivory Rug – $199

This rug proves that rustic does not need to equal traditional. The clean design would seem right at home in a log cabin in addition to a a compact modern house.


Branch-Out Ring Holder – $12

I am eternally panicking that my wedding rings will fall into the bathroom, but a ring keeper like this one from PB Teen would keep them securely on the counter. Should you keep lotions in your powder room, this tiny tree would be a thoughtful touch to your guests.


Arbor Shower Curtain – $39.95

Outdoor showers aren’t realistic in my city neighborhood, but this shower curtain would help me pretend it. I would pair it with lime green and teal accessories.
