Part 5: Bringing Nature Inside Your Home with Natural Materials

 

Does your home contain natural materials? Take a look around you where you sit at this very moment. If you’re sitting inside, what is the flooring?  Is it hardwood, laminate, Saltillo tile, polished concrete or carpet? What are you sitting on?  Is it a sofa upholstered with pillows or a plastic or wood chair? Is the cup you drink out of a plastic non-breakable or is it glass?  What is your dining table made from?

In this post, I explore how to bring nature inside your home with natural materials.  How can you incorporate more natural materials into your home?

If we have authentic, honest, earthy materials in our houses, we’ll be more authentic, honest, and natural.
