How much do I love birch trees? Sooooooo much. Though we have all kinds of ridiculously beautiful trees out here in California, like giant sequoias and coastal redwoods, foxtail and Jeffrey pines, and of course the Joshua Trees of the high desert, I have a total soft spot for the birch trees of my native Midwest. We even special ordered faux birch logs for our fireplace when we revamped it, both so the white color would pop more than a darker wood color and because birch is just so pretty.
When I saw the HGTV Dream House 2011, a fantastic example of mountain modern perfection in Vermont, and saw the master bath mirror, I had an "Aha!" moment that I need to incorporate birch into our future decor.
Fortunately, lots of people more creative and crafty than I have also decided that they love birch trees, and so there are all kinds of birch-inspired housewares and art ideas in the Etsysphere. How nice would all of these things look in a mountain modern getaway? That is, in addition to the Dream House mirror, which I will either find somewhere, make myself, or die trying.
