Look!: Lichen Branches at the Dwell Home: Silicon Valley

We hate to brag, but we're really quite happy with our idea to incorporate lichen-covered branches into the Dwell Home: Silicon Valley. Not only does the chartreuse color work really well with the interior furnishings and finishes, but we love the fact that we were able to bring natural elements into a contemporary home for less than $100!

The branches were purchased at the flower market for $75 (for a bundle that we selected ourselves) and they were placed above two built-in IKEA Expedit shelving units. (Each unit cost $150 and took less than 4 hours (and we aren't pros at assembly) to put together.)
