Home settings as diverse as a windswept farmhouse, a cabin by a lake, or an urban brownstone can all be made more beautiful with the addition of decorative pieces crafted from found bits of the woodland landscape. Magazines such as "Architectural Digest" and "Country Living" have featured organic elements in every kind of interior setting, and it's virtually impossible to pick up a catalogue without seeing an example of 'the organic landscape of modern homes.' Artist and author Marlene Hurley Marshall is inspired and excited by nature every day. Using easily found materials, responsibly collected from casual walks in the woods or fields, she creates stylish decorations that delight the senses with their natural colours, textures, and aromas. In "The Woodland Style", Marshall presents dozens of creative designs for natural home decor from a variety of artists and crafters, along with step- by-step how-to for recreating many of her own projects. From the simple beauty of a dried-leaf collage to the eye-catching surprise of a bark-covered armoire, readers will find inspiration and instruction in these colourful pages. In addition to highlighting lovely ways to bring nature indoors, Marshall also includes projects that use natural elements in outdoor decorating. Garden pots, window boxes, fences, and birdhouses all appear here in woodland- embellished versions that complement any home outdoor setting.
