Despite not being an outdoorsy person, I love nature but I love it more indoors. I regularly bring home little bits of the outside. On my desk is a tiny bowl of sea urchin shells I painstakingly brought back from a scuba diving trip. In the living room hangs a sculptural (and broken) tree branch I dragged home from the neighborhood park one day. Inspired by the great wilderness, this week's roundup features home decor with natural elements—all available for sale on Apartment Therapy Marketplace.
Splurge: Mixed Media Wood Wall Art
While the geometric designs of this mixed media wood art diptych may not be found on Earth, the material is all-natural. Part of the BLKWHT Series No. 028, Los Angeles-based seller Fresh.Dust experiments traditionally industrial elements to create both art and furniture designs. If you have no room on your walls, consider getting the same effect with one of the tabletops available on Fresh.Dust's corner. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $520.
How cute is this macrame hanging planter from the 1970's? At the top of the planter is a woven owl made of natural jute material with beads for the eyes and nose. Just imagine this in front of a sunny window of your home. If your green thumb needs a little work, see these tips from real life houseplant owners. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $45.
Steal: Danish Marble Coffee Table
Made in Denmark, a coffee table by Bendixen is a steal for this price point. The marble-topped table is not only gorgeous, but it will outlast the daily wear of life and water rings. There are some ink spots and a chip to the marble but it won't take away from the beautiful tabletop. Similar styles with a teak base are valued at over $900, but not this one. Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $300.
