Incorporating Natural Elements in Design

The sight of green grass, crisp leaves blowing in the wind and snow gently falling are all reminders that nature is one of the most beautiful backdrops. Different scenes can be energizing or calming, so it’s no wonder that many people want to bring a bit of the outdoors into their home decor. If you’re wondering how, consider incorporating natural elements in design.


With so many patterns, species and shades, there are seemingly endless wood flooring options available. Eco-friendly choices include water- and mildew-resistant cork and durable bamboo. You should also consider area rugs and carpeting made from sustainable products.


Stone is a great material for different applications. We know marble and granite have long been used in kitchens, but don’t rule it out as a flooring application, a fireplace surround or as an accent wall. Versatile and durable, stone can be used in traditional or contemporary design schemes. Check out Aspect Peel & Stick stone tiles, which are made of real, thin-cut stone and available in 9 colors. It’s the easy and affordable way to incorporate natural stone into any design scheme.

Window Treatments

Letting the sunlight in through windows has its appeal, but privacy and shade matter. Today’s window treatments come in a variety of materials, including many natural options. They include bamboo, linen, cotton and silk. Check out these top 10 window treatment trends, as defined by HGTV.


There’s more to natural furniture than unfinished. Rattan, leather and furniture made from reclaimed wood are all great options. Consider upholstery with prints of items found in nature such as plants. Use throws in natural materials such as wool or cotton in interesting patterns to liven up a plain sofa.
