For many reasons, birch trees bring people a sense of peace and inspiration. I wanted to figure out what this feeling actually comes from. The early uses were for shelter, paper, buckets, plates and canoes but also medicinally. Wintergreen Oil is extracted from the twigs. The tree was also believed to be immune to lighting strikes. This article provides more information on birch trees that might be of interest to explain it’s unquestionable interest.

The image of birch trees has becomes a large part of home decor over the last few years. I’ve designed a two lines of birch trees – one is hand sketched grey and whites and the other is modern and graphic.  These designs can be wallpaper or fabrics but I do like it most applied vertically. What would work best for your home?
