Practical shelving makes the most of the alcove space in this living room, with a large space on the bottom shelf to store logs to fuel the traditional wood-burning stove. Light wooden flooring is teamed with a fresh white rug to match the sofa.
The contorted hazelnut tree (Corylus avellana "Contorta"), also called Harry Lauder walking stick or corkscrew hazel ~ boasts branches that twist in every direction. In early spring the branches are dotted with yellow flower clusters called catkins. I simply ADORE this tree!!!! Not a giant tree, but small trees need advocates too! ;)
