Earthy and Natural Materials in Home Decor

One of the hottest trends in interiors today is going back to Mother Nature



Interior designs are featuring more natural, earthy materials, and petrified wood is one of the hottest trends. These beautiful pieces bring natural warmth and a welcoming feel to your home, while petrified wood reveals the artistic beauty of Mother Nature.

The inherent splendor of geodes is being used in accessories such as lamps and wall art. Eco-conscious homeowners want to bring the outdoors in, to enhance the feeling within a space. Geodes are rocks that are plain on the outside but can have beautiful crystals on the inside; in the Greek language, geode means "shape of the earth."

Travertine is a form of limestone that comes from mineral springs. It is quite durable, which lends itself to be used as coffee tables and end tables.

Mother of pearl is used extensively as an accent to upgrade, add details and enhance fine furniture and accessories. Mother of pearl is actually a blend of minerals that is secreted by oysters and other mollusks, then deposited inside their shells, coating and protecting them. The beautiful luster adds a little sparkle and shine to a monochromatic room.
