It's not surprising that pebbles are such a popular motif in design. In nature, pebbles are smooth, elegantly shaped and luxuriously tactile. Translated, the pebble's soft curves can skew mod or earthy or beach cottage, making it a versatile home accent.
If you can't splurge on these designs, go budget with some beautiful pebbles from the beach or river bank arranged in a vase or bowl.
