Portland Mid-Century Modern

Antiques, including a pair of Portuguese eel traps hanging over the fireplace mantel, Chinese garden stools, a rustic mirrored cabinet, and French blown-glass demijohn bottles, add a patina of age.

I would like to know about the branch? Is it fake or a real branch? I love the look. If real from what kind of tree and how do you take care of it?

What kind of tree are these branches from? This looks like a spring design. Can you recommend faux or live branches that may work during the winter months in that same demijohn? Thanks

2. Fill a demijohn with big branches. Actually, any extra-large container will do — just prune a branch or two from your own tree, plunk them in water and place the container beside your mantel. The swooping height and fresh green color are sure to reinvigorate your space.

4. Display textural objects as art. Elevate everyday objects made of interesting textural materials — like old farm tools, interesting seedpods, woven baskets or antique metal buckets — by presenting them in unexpected ways. Display larger items, like this pair of woven metal Portuguese eel traps, against blank backdrops to show off their textural quality through contrast.

3. Nets and other tools. Old farm implements, boat paddles, glass floats, fishing nets and other tools and equipment all tell a story. As wall art, they can add a sense of intrigue to a room. For example, you might not instantly recognize the pair of Portuguese eel traps above this fireplace in Portland, Oregon. They’re hung with plenty of room to breathe, letting their graceful form and rich texture of the weaving stand out.
