Decorating simply and naturally
Rediscovering the beauty of simple things
Supposedly unremarkable treasures from nature are the protagonists of this book.
The book clearly shows how fragrant flowers, prickly berries, gnarled branches, interest- ingly marked stones, soft feathers, simple snail shells and many other objects from everyday life can be used to make decorations. They can be arranged to make decorative works of art that can be simple, nostalgic, bold, individual, but always creative and effective. Wonderful photographs inspire the reader to try out the designs themselves. This book features a variety of wonderful decoration ideas using natural materials from all four seasons, for every occasion, every setting and every style.
