Sliced and diced branches stick together (hardy-har-har) in this mat from CB2, which complements the house numbers perfectly. I love that it's eco-friendly and interesting. Just don't be surprised if Fido runs off with it.
I'm a big fan of wall hooks. I like to test them out with Command hooks before committing to a hole in the wall, but I think I could make an exception for these branch hooks. They'd be perfect in a small or narrow entryway for stashing guests' coats or your dog's leashes. They'd also work on the back of the bathroom door for towels.
I love wine stoppers; once popped, the cork expands and I practically knock the bottle over as I try to jam it back in. This pretty and functional stopper makes me almost want to leave some wine in the bottle. Almost.
My son has a little love affair with coasters. They're used as teething toys, frisbees and tools for tormenting the cat. If I had coasters just for me, I would have these. I love the rich variation in the wood grain.
With a subtle gold shimmer, these candles are a pretty and subtle rustic touch for the holidays. I'd put several on a mirrored tray in the middle of the table to bounce the light around.
With such bland, builder-basic lighting in my home, I'm always on the lookout for interesting alternatives to illuminate my rooms. This handmade pendant light adds texture and an interesting talking point for your guests.
Do you have loads of unsightly "nipple lights" in your home? I do — too many of them. This ceiling fixture from Shades of Light is a great choice for appealing to both sexes: rustic wrought iron for the guys and shimmering gold for the girls. Nipple lights, be gone!
Forget gourd lamps. How about a branch lamp instead? This ceramic table lamp is more interesting than the ubiquitous gourd. I would put two on a living room console table or dining room buffet.
There's something hauntingly beautiful about this black, white and gray handmade pillow cover. Spooky? Perhaps. Versatile? Definitely. The striking image will pop on your couch just as much as a more colorful cushion would.
For those who feel at home with beige (c'mon, it's safe and comfy), this pillow adds subtle texture. It would look perfect in my bedroom where soothing blues and creams rule.
This rug proves that rustic doesn't have to equal traditional. The clean design would look right at home in a log cabin as well as a a streamlined modern home.
