The Forest Fern, known for unique goods and exquisite handcrafted pieces, impressively has one woman working behind-the-scenes. Sara’s creations include macrame wall hangings, custom plant hangers and various home goods. The mother of two usually scouts for great finds at flea markets and antique stores to add to her collection of classic works of art and vintage pottery among many other personal items.
Once a fixer-upper, her place is now a cozy and stylish living space that’s become more than a beautiful home. It’s paved the way to discovering her style and has since been the source of inspiration to create the most beautiful things. The endless list of much-needed home repairs were matched with motivation and passion of a mother amidst a limited budget to turn the house into a home.
Unconventional and artistic Bohemian style wraps the place as vintage rugs are sprawled on the rustic wooden floors, plain and printed pillows line the bed and couch, and handmade accents are sprinkled in every room. The plain backdrop of white walls are spruced up with a few remarkable framed artworks and made brighter with lovely colors of home decor and furniture. Nature’s elements add life to the rooms, with potted greens carried gracefully by ornate plant hangers tailored to each plant vessel. Her love of plants encouraged Sara to start weaving them herself, that which quickly evolved into something of a larger scale where she shares her talent and makes the charming crafts available to all.
Different handmade accents throughout the home create very pleasant and attractive surroundings personalized with her own taste. The stylish abode is filled with character, with each piece holding an admirably distinctive beauty sprung from inspiration and skillful hands. Sara attributes imperfections in the varying macrame craftsmanship to be a beautiful thing, given the handcrafted nature of her work that yields one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
