Sometimes also called the Watchful Tree because of the eye-like impressions on the bark, the birch tree is very special for several reasons. The white bark gives it a very distinguished look, making it a perfect choice when it comes to interior design features. Furniture made from it has a unique look but the birch trees can also be used in other ways, more pure and natural.

These birch trees are used just for décor, although they may appear to also offer some support. Their bark was sealed to prevent it from drying out and peeling. They look very charming in front of the fireplace and they give the bedroom a very serene look.

These birch tree branches were used to create a decorative wall. They are anchored to the floor and go up to the ceiling. Because of the color of the walls, the trees fit right in without contrasting with the background.

This media room looks extremely warm and cozy and the birch trees only emphasize that. The trees appear to be real and they were cut lengthwise and then placed on the walls. The ceiling has subtle leaf patterns throughout and so the birch trees match the décor.

The birch trees give this long hallway a very interesting look. Arranged side by side along the wall, the trees impress with their beautiful texture and color. In fact, the color of the bark closely matches that on the wall and ceiling.
Give your bedroom a rustic feel by introducing a few birch tree branches. In this case, they complement the headboards of the two beds. The branches are purely decorative. The beds also have birch tree legs.
One way of including trees or tree logs into your home’s décor without wasting floor space is by displaying them against the wall and creating a focal point. Some accent lighting would also greatly help.
Birch accents can be charming in any room of the house. The kids’ room, for example, could use a few stylish accents. Here’s how birch tree branches were used in this case: they frame the cozy window nook and decorate the walls. Also, small branches were used on the lighting fixtures.

Chalets and winter cabins are the perfect place for playing with such features. Birch trees were used here to create a wooden wall in the living area. The logs have light-colored bark which contrasts a little bit with the rest of the wood features but, at the same time, the area rug balances out and color palette.

We know wood is often used when building furniture but it’s not usually used like this. This is a table with actual birch trees sticking out of it. The branches run through the tabletop and are anchored to the bottom of the table. A similar technique can also be used for other pieces of furniture.

People usually like to display flowers or plants in their homes and the corner of a room is perfect for that. But what if instead of delicate flowers you were to display some massive birch tree logs? That would be unexpected and so simple yet so interesting.
In spaces with high ceilings like this one, birch trees don’t need to be cut to size to fit in. You can take them inside and display them along the tall windows or in the center of a sitting area, where they can decorate the columns supporting the space.

These birch tree walls are very beautiful and they also have a functional purpose: space dividers. Instead of actual walls, you can have a wall of trees. It’s a wonderful idea for big and shared spaces like a large living area but also for commercial spaces.
