Inspired by nature’s colors, textures, and patterns, design icon Erica Tanov uses her passion for textiles to create beautiful, timeless interiors that connect us to the natural world. Design by Nature incorporates simple motifs from nature into the home, with new and imaginative decorating ideas for an organic and bohemian style that mixes and layers rugs, pillows, throws, and drapery, and incorporates unique patterns and fabrics such as shibori, ikat, and jamdani.
Practical design and decorating tips enable you to incorporate patterns and motifs from both ordinary and unexpected landscape elements, as well as develop a keener eye for the beauty that surrounds you every day. With nature as inspiration, along with stunning photos from renowned photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo, Design by Nature offers an enduring and intuitive approach to design that transcends fleeting trends.
