People seek out Montana interior designer Kate Ledford for her uncanny ability to decorate using items they already own. “I always look for found items wherever I go, and I like to recultivate things in unexpected ways,” she says—which explains her collection of deer antlers, accumulated while foraging in the forest (deer shed them naturally).

Materials: Antlers, pheasant and quail feathers, dried berries, painted straw snowflakes, twigs, heavy wire.
Tip: Use materials with contrasting textures to create interest.
