Design By Nature ~ Erica Tanov
Creating layered, lived-in spaces inspired by the natural world.
The first design book that translates elements of nature - flora, water and wood - into elements of decor for beautiful, lived-in, and bohemian interiors.
You don't need to travel to distant locales to find beauty; it's all around us, from the crackle of fallen leaves to the jagged bark of a tree. In unexpected and profound ways, tastemaker Erica Tanov teaches you how to train your eye to this beauty, and then bring the outdoors in - incorporating patterns and motifs from nature, as well as actual elements from the natural world into simple ideas for everyday decorating and design. With topics ranging from embracing imperfection in your home, to seeking out flea markets, to displaying your collections, Design By Nature takes an enduring and intuitive approach to design that transcends fleeting trends and encourages you to find your own personal style, source of creativity, and connection to the natural world.
Erica Tanov launched her eponymous label in 1990 after earning a BFA in fashion design from Parsons School Of Design. Her work has been featured in Vogue, Elle Decoration UK, Undecorate and The New Bohemians.
