I don't know how it happened, but over the years I've really come to enjoy nature and the idea of bringing the outdoors in to my closet and my home. Chalk it up to all the forced camping trips and Girl Scout excursions I took as a kid, but nowadays, one of the easiest ways for me to unwind is to go out to the country, have no access to digital anything, and enjoy the peace that nature brings. I can't believe I even just wrote that!
When it comes to decorating, I've similarly been drawn to the idea of bringing the outdoors in, whether that's through big doors that open up to an outdoor entertaining area, or using free form, organic shapes, like with pieces that are crafted to imitate branches. When you have a very modern aesthetic, there's something about the movement in branches that breaks up clean lines in a room, while still looking polished and interesting -- even artful.

The branch trend has been everywhere in the fashion world lately too, and funnily enough, I think I'd be more apt to use it in home design styling before I wore it on my own! For some reason, I think the look is a lot more daring when it's on your person. It's very modern tree-hugger, don't you think?

Here are some branchy inspired pieces I found for both interior and personal style. What do you think of this trend?
