A connection with nature is a source of peace and inspiration for many, which explains why nature-inspired designs remain a popular choice for homeowners who want to bring the outdoors in. Modern technology has allowed design companies and manufacturers to produce innovative materials that evoke the organic forms of natural materials, often with added durability and other practical advantages.
Ceramic Faux-Wood Flooring Hardwood flooring is a design classic, but is prone to wear and tear when used in high-traffic areas and is inappropriate for bathrooms due to the threat of water damage. E-Wood understands, which is why they invented a ceramic flooring perfect for any living space. Ceramic tiles replicate the look and feel of real wood. They’re ultra-durable and pair well with radiant heating for a surface that is as attractive as it is comfortable.
Bathroom River Stones We love the natural look of this pebble flooring, used as a mosaic border and bath mat in this nature-inspired bathroom. It pays homage to nature’s ponds, rivers, and streams, and provides a perfect no-slip bathroom floor surface.
Moss Carpet One way to create an outdoor-indoor feel is to use an accent piece like this moss carpet. Paired with vibrant floral arrangements and a colorful art piece, it feels like a forest has sprouted indoors!
Murals In a recent LS&A project, we used a large seascape mural in Rasha’s apartment family room, and then incorporated a real awning in the kitchen to continue the theme.
