Employ Natural Textures
Consider designing your space using natural textures like organic linen, wood from sustainably managed forests, vintage beams, and reclaimed leather. If you do, you’ll find yourself creating a layered room from ceiling to floor that is both versatile and calming.
Offering enviable durability, sustainable, natural fiber rugs bring a luxurious feel and work with nearly any design aesthetic. Southern Living raves: “Whether it’s jute, sea grass, or sisal, incorporating woven materials into your décor connects the indoors with the outdoors,” bringing casual refinement to beach houses and serenity and lush texture to even the most modern homes.
Do you love the visual interest that comes from wallpaper but want to avoid a pattern clash with your other décor? The sustainable design experts at Southern Living have the answer: grasscloth, a fast-growing, organic material. The Magazine reveals that “the subtle, elegant texture adds that extra bit of decorating oomph, without overwhelming a soothing sea-inspired space.”
