Style Me Sunday: The Great Indoors

Did you know that last Friday was John James Audubon’s birthday? This historic birder has inspired many with his iconic illustrations of birds and their surroundings for centuries, bringing the wonders of nature into the most urbanized settings.

While the industrial décor trend is currently en vogue, it can be a little harsh without the right accents to balance the look. If you like the look of rustic interiors, but industrial isn’t for you, explore the pastoral side of design.

Style Me Sunday: The Great Indoors

Follow your natural instincts with rustic decorative accents, lantern style lighting, neutral tones, and found object art

Audubon Folio Prints are essential in every nature lover’s home. He certainly captured these birds’ vibrant hues.

Let natural elements like bird’s nests and crochet lace stone be your guide to table dècor. There is something so playful about displaying found art. The juxtaposition of hard stone with soft, pastel yarn sparks curiosity and makes a one-of-a-kind paper weight!

Some of our favorite outdoor memories are of weekend camping trips. We’ve recaptured that cozy feeling with ambient rustic and lantern lighting in fixtures like the Charleston Barn Lantern and The Universal Wall Sconce. Doesn’t this Vintage Woven Pink and Green Striped Wool Blanket make you want to snuggle up with a cup of cocoa and watch the stars? And this Wire Hand Basket would be the perfect storage container for your throws and books.

Wooden furniture like The Hudson Loft Sofa Table adds utilitarian style to your living room without a lot of bulk. The beautiful hardwood service is actually kind to the environment as it is crafted from reclaimed Merritt Island Hard Pine.

Let nature influence your aesthetic and you will experience the great indoors!
