The delicate balance of the environment is one of the most precious things which we must protect. This awareness has spawned a movement toward more natural living and this is being reflected in our interiors.
We already have the term Shabby Chic, now we have another ‘Chic’..Organic Chic. The use of wood in its natural form, showing the ‘live edge’ and simply oiling rather than staining heavily is evident in the products offered by stores such as Artemano. http://www.artemano.ca/
Crisp, Modern Country
This kitchen is perhaps over the top in the expression of organic, but it is well done and has a modern, clean feeling, not the cluttered country of the past.
Perfect imperfection is what Mother Nature brings to the design world. Incorporating natural elements into your home will create a seamless connection between indoors and out, especially appropriate in our climate which forces us indoors for so many months in the year.
