Decorating with Natural Curiosities

One of the hottest home design trends for Spring 2015 is using items curated from nature as accents in your home decor. From beautiful pieces of coral and shells collected at the beach to oversized bowls roughly carved from wood, these items bring the outdoors in and give your room a rich, worldly look.


Use items you find in your backyard and treasures you bring home from your travels. You’ll also find interesting and unique pieces at Art Van Furniture as well as Scott Shuptrine Interiors. Take a look at these five one-of-a-kind items, available in Scott’s Attic, and see if something catches your eye and your imagination:


Faux Horns


Imagine this pair of faux horn mahogany trophies sitting on an end table in your living room. Inspired by Medieval drinking horns, they have fluted bases and brass accents and look like a piece of living history. Perfect in a rustic or traditional home, they also add a raw element to an urban-style dwelling.


Walnut Tray


The grain of this solid-walnut serving tray makes the piece a living work of art, highlighting the natural colors of the wood. Fantastic on a dining room table or kitchen counter, it would also make breakfast in bed extra special.


Cobra Accessories


Covered in cobra skin, this large vase would be stunning on its own. Fill it with decorative tall grass, and it will look like you’ve just got back from a safari. Also covered in cobra is a matching pair of bowls. These would add interesting texture to a cocktail table.


Abalone Shell Accessories


Shagreen and inlaid abalone shells cover this set of boxes, creating an interesting geometric pattern. They’re the perfect solution for holding jewelry and a wallet on your dresser. The matching bowl would look beautiful on a dining or end table. Fill it with decorative ornaments or even the remote.


Python Accessories


Python skin makes an interesting covering for this tray and candlestick. The texture looks stunning in this rich shade of green. The tray would be great on an oversized ottoman, and the candlestick would dress up a sideboard or vanity.
