Two years ago, after a trip to Copenhagen, I posted 22 Rooms with Scandinavian Holiday Decor. Although this post is not about the winter holidays, it is about decorating with branches and twigs in their bare, natural state in wintertime. While it can be nice to splurge on pretty, colorful flowers to brighten a room, especially during the depths of winter, bare tree branches are an easy (free) alternative. Tree branch arrangements add drama and interesting shapes and texture to a room. Stick them in a pot or clear glass vase with water. If you want a bit more embellishment, try branches with berries, pussy willows, flowering branches, or branches with a few leaves still intact. Here are 18 Scandinavian style interiors with tree branch arrangements.
