Wood, steel, brick and greenery make up the bulk of the décor. Some spaces can be shabby and some are chic, but they all have their appeal. The joy of this theme is using old wine barrels, chunks of timber, wheel barrows, and other intriguing miss matched items. You can use fresh fruits, wild flowers, cutting of luscious greenery from the side of the road.
