branching out: home decor edition

Lately, my sista from another mista, Lori and I have been in room decorating-mode. She just moved into a new place and is working on making it her own and I've been wanting to mature my room a bit... while still keeping a good amount of my notorious eclectic clutter. Here's how we each utilized some awesome branches found in the park near our neighborhood in different ways, showcasing our very different personalities:

My branch serves as a headboard of sorts... I'm working on making my room/bed
a little more romantic and relaxing if you can't tell...

...and Lori's is a lamp! Also, how cute is her pooch?

There's something about incorporating a natural element into your decor... ya just can't beat it! Also, do the pillows look familiar? Check out the tutorial here.

In other news, after trying and trying to master homemade marquee letters, I finally gave up and out of no where found a nice little [random] collection of letters spelling out one of my favorite words: nom. Obviously.

That is one of the most brilliant and gorgeous decor ideas I've seen in a while! Holy crap, I love it! If my stupid cat wouldn't tear it off the wall I would totally force Justin to let me make a headboard like that.
