Hi, I’m Susi and I am a writer at Design Shuffle. Design Shuffle is a social media site where design professionals and design enthusiasts can share their projects, browse tens of thousands of images for inspiration and network. Be sure to check it out. I'm excited to be guest blogging here at B.E Interiors this week. When I was given the topic of “decorating with sticks & stones” I immediately thought of “Sticks and stones may break your bones… but can also be used to as great decorating ideas for your home.” I was definitely inspired by the twig chandeliers B. had on the blog. Gorgeous! Natural elements, like sticks and stones, add an organic element to design, bringing a bit of nature indoors. Driftwood, branches, raw wood, natural and faux stone all can add a natural, organic accent to a room.

The rustic quality of this handmade stick bedside table is a nice balance to the more contemporary style of the bedroom. Natural elements add an unexpected touch.

A charming DIY project turns bare branches into spring blooms with tissue paper. This would also work with yellow and orange tissue for a fall look.

This unusual stick headboard brings a natural element into this bedroom. Love the juxtaposition between the natural sticks and the glamorous chandelier—a perfect bedroom design.
Felted “stones” in a bowl make a charming conversation starter. Place on the coffee table or in the entry. Great DIY project.

These rocks are really large felted wool cushions. A very cool touch to a living room or family room.

Another clever DIY project, this starburst wreath is made of driftwood. This idea would also make a stunning mirror for an entry or powder room.

River rock tiles are a hot design trend, even in kitchen designs. If an entire floor of rocks is too much, look for a river rock door mat.
