Logs add a rustic, wintery feel.
"Birch bark logs are always timeless," says Toronto designer Sharon Mimran. "You can stack them in piles on tabletops as accents, stack them in the fireplace, make wreaths out of them, or just use the bark around the house for accents." Decorating with logs is an easy way to add rustic charm to any space. If you're not lucky enough to find a fallen tree or branches to repurpose, check out your local nursery or garden centre in late fall, or keep an eye out for ads selling firewood.
