  1. are you kidding me, nature gets incorporated on it’s own, when kids and pets run inside without wiping their feet! I have “nature” all over my floors!

    seriously, though, the best way to brighten up a room is with fresh flowers. sometimes it’s a whole bouquet from the farmers’ market in the center of the table for a party, sometimes it’s a few branches in bud vases around the room.

    and now that it will be winter soon [in Chicago!] there aren’t any flowers, but using ‘outdoor’ staples [planters, flowerpots, watering cans, rock, tree trunks, etc] for new purposes [holding the TV remotes, as a cookie jar, as an end table or a stool] brings the feel of a spring garden indoors.

  2. I love plants, flowers and of course items made from natural or organic items in my home. Real wooden picture frames, wooden wall plaques, coasters, seashell designs etc.. things I usually buy at our local craft fairs in the fall. These bowls are awesome!

  3. Wow, what a great give-away! I keep a lot of cut flowers around the house. I would love to buy lots of potted plants but the cats try to eat the one geranium I have! (Anyone know how to keep cats away from plants?)

    I think winning these bowls might inspire me to start making potpourri again (something I haven’t tried since I was about twelve.)

  4. I am always drawn to organic shapes, natural materials and subtle patterns derived from nature… These tend to surface most often on my dining table — in the form of a leaf-shaped dish, a silver cake server with seashell-inspired handle, or a simple wooden serving tray, for example. Elsewhere, it’s color that reminds me of the outdoors — earth tones, pale greens and blues dominate. And of course, living plants!

  5. I heart having fresh cut flowers around – peonies make me insanely happy no matter what kind of day I’m having. I think fresh flowers add texture, interest and (depending on how they’re displayed) a mood to a room. They can be sophisticated, they can be whimsical, they can be cheery.

    I am also obsessed with framing photos of flowers, leaves, bees…you name it! I have tried my husband’s patience more than once photographing the life out of a perfect fern leaf because I think the green is amazing and can’t be replicated in fabric, paint, etc, and it will look Perfect with a capital P in our bathroom.

  6. I incorporate nature by being “green” in my design choices for myself and clients. I have my own line of eco friendly upholstery items. Bar Stools, beds, daybeds, chaise, sofa/sectional, dining chairs, and storage bench. They are my custom designs made in Hickory, NC and I will launching the line soon (the last of the protypes just shipped, Yeah!). There are manufactured with responsibly forested American hardwoods, soy based cushions, recycled steel coils, and completely eco friendly uphostery. I never win anything.

  7. What a great give away! I love nature and think it is important to bring it indoors too. I have some branches in a vase, lots of plants and even dried lavender. I try to be nice to nature and use green products at home for cleaning etc. too.

  8. I would probably rephrase that to say “how do i incorporate my home into nature?”
    I purchased my first home this year and my number one priority for finding the right home was that it be secluded in nature. Nothing can match that natural whimsical qualities that nature has, but i try to. I bring in flowers and rocks and twigs, and am careful not to shut out the natural light, breeze, or sounds that carry through open windows.
    Growing my own vegetables and herbs, and using natural oils etc. for healing are something i love that constantly reminds me that i am part of nature.
    Nature is wild, it is not planned or color-coordinated. I try to remember this while i am decorating my house. Things come together one at a time, not meticulously mapping out the way i decorate brings the organic aesthetic that the outdoors have into my home too.

  9. i try to keep my decor as simple and clean as possible. i love incorporating organic shapes and natural textures and colors. i typically opt for recycled/used pieces that are simple and elegant. wood/woodgrain is my absolute favorite. i also incorporate things like rocks and sand that my family picked up while vacationing ages ago.

    i really love the weight and color of the burke bowls- a nice mixture of wood color and a bright and appealing acrylic, has a total 60s/70s vibe which is awesome. i would totally use these as pretty (wrapped) candy dishes!

  10. We’ve inherited my father-in-laws gnarled tree root coffee table, which holds a simple crystal vase filled with flowers from the garden.

    In the bathroom I keep shells and sand dollars in a large crystal bowl. Found driftwood in various shapes (spoons, hearts, etc.) line the counter below the mirror.

    Finally, a prodigal of plants (Irish red clover, golden pothos, peace lily, philidendron, etc.) keep my spaces green and the air fresh and clean!

  11. I try to make sections of my house have different themes. My nature corner of my family room, adjacent to my patio to bring in real sunlight, has a potted Phoenix Sylvestris, a watering can, potted flowers, gardening gloves, a straw hat, and a tray set up for tea. I tried to bring the outdoors in.
