Pure untouched and stylish, this is the blueprint for natural decorating. Natural Interiors explores the ever-increasing range of natural products and methods — from the raw materials to how they are integrated into your home, without losing comfort, efficiency or functionality. It explains the advantages of ecofriendly options over the mass produced, the artificial and the processed, and delights in their unique and nurturing qualities.
Natural materials are not only visually appealing, they can also contribute to our physical and emotional well-being. Not only are they less damaging to the environment as a whole, natural materials can counter the pollutants and irritants in our home — good for our health and good for our souls.
Natural Interiors looks at the elements of nature that we can bring into our homes — earth, water, fire, air, space, color and light. It then discusses raw materials, such as wood and stone, and how to choose walls, floors, furniture and lighting. It concludes with a section on room design.
The ideas in Natural Interiors is abundantly illustrated with 180 color photographs. By creating natural and inviting spaces, Natural Interiors evokes a style of living that is gentle, aesthetic and balanced.
