What I am seeing as a popular trend for the winter is what I am calling, “Birch Decor.” It includes birch bark or wood combined with greenery to give a rustic and “homemade” look.

This look can be achieved in your main living areas by having a birch bark basket holding greenery on your coffee table. The curtains can be of natural hues with a green or chartreuse curtain scarf draping over it or including greens in tiebacks. The dining room table centerpiece could be a set of three birch bark log candle holders that could either hold actual candles or battery-operated tea light candles that flicker.
The wall hangings can have some birch trees painted in them or be cleverly designed of birch branches or the wall hanging could be an actual birch branch with some greenery. You can also hang wood slice ornaments that still have the birch bark on the outer round. These wood slices can then have beautiful words burned into or hand-painted on them like peace, hope, love, believe, joy, family and be hung with jute twine.
Here are some ideas of how it could look.
Birch Decor on your Front Porch
As you walk up to the porch, you may notice a bird house hanging nearby from Etsy vendor ArtoftheNorth.
