Wallpaper - Organic Looks
Fractal patterns common in nature. Patterns can be seen everywhere: in animals, vegetables and minerals. Have you ever observed the similarity between the shape of your lungs and the structure of a tree? Or maybe the pathways of lightning and the way a river breaks through the earth? These patterns are called fractals.
A fractal is a kind of pattern that we observe often in nature and in art. As Ben Weiss explains, “whenever you observe a series of patterns repeating over and over again, at many different scales, and where any small part resembles the whole, that’s a fractal.” Read this article for more on the organic looks you can create with fractal patterns!
Incorporating fractals into your wallpaper is a great way to create a connection to nature at home. Below, we've featured some great wallpapers as examples of this!
Plantings - Organic Looks
A major trend in interior design this year is creating a jungle look by adding lots of plantings. This is such a straightforward, yet fun way to create that beautiful connection to nature in your space.
Scroll down for some inspiration for how to add plantings to your space in creative ways. You can either go all out, or stay more classic and understated! And don't forget to stop at your local plant shop as part of the fun adding these organic looks to your space!
You can bring nature to your home in less direct ways too. Using natural materials for counter spaces, tiles, walls, and other surfaces is a great way to bridge the gap between the outdoors and the indoors, especially if you maybe don't want your home to look like a jungle.
Below, we've featured some gorgeous use of naturally occurring rock in spaces, as well as some gorgeous chandeliers made from woven cocoa beads. These chandeliers give a beautiful bohemian look, bringing nature into the space without completely destroying the divide between outside and inside!
