Decorative Wood Branch Accents by Art Signs Interiors
ArtSigns Interiors creates custom-made decorative elements for homes and businesses, including these wooden branch-inspired room screens and doors. The natural wood tones and the shape of the branches, which is also reminiscent of coral, add a bit of organic flair to each space.

Nautilus Shell Home by Javier Senosiain
Interior design doesn’t get much more organic than this: Javier Senosiain’s ‘The Nautilus,’ a shell-shaped home with inside rooms bursting with greenery. Rounded walls, colorful glass mosaic windows and all of those plants combine to make this unusual house feel a bit like a converted (and super comfortable) cave.
Living Moss Carpets
Supported by a plant-based, rug-like fiber, these carpets are made up of living moss. Terramac by Makoto Azuma is a biodegradable system for bringing nature into the home, containing soil and seeds that just have to be misted with water every now and then.
Flowing Walls Made of Recycled Cardboard
Cardboard may not be an obvious choice for wall treatments, but this modern shop interior for Yeshop in Athens, Greece shows off its versatility. Reclaimed corrugated cardboard was stacked, glued and then carved into beautiful flowing shapes to create a rounded interior.
Green and White in a Portland Mid-Century Home
This midcentury modern home in Portland, with interior design by Jessica Helgerson, is a prime example of what minimalist organic style can achieve by pairing lots of living green accents with bright white walls and natural daylight.
Gorgeous Feng Shui Bathroom
You’d have to forgive us for spending an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom, if our bathroom looked like this. Optimized for Feng Shui, the Chinese art of arranging interiors for optimal flow of ‘chi’ energy, it features living bamboo and a moss-lined bench in addition to a floor inlaid with natural gray stones.
Granite Boulder Bath Tubs
What kind of bathtub could be more visually striking than one made from a massive granite boulder? Houzz has a collection of these natural tubs that’ll have you eyeballing your bathroom floor, wondering whether it could support all that weight.
Tree-Filled Courtyard by Garrett Eckbo
Incorporating living trees into interior design can be a tricky prospect, but for those who have interior courtyards, they’re a must-have. This photo shows how nature and interior design can come together in indoor/outdoor spaces.
Rustic Wood Bathroom Counter
A large slice of burled wood is supported by heavy black chains to make up an incredible, vaguely medieval-looking bathroom counter.
Shiavello Vertical Gardens
Vertical gardens come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from small collections of hanging plants to green walls covering entire multi-story building facades. In this case, Joost Bakker’s Vertical Garden is a steel-frame interior plant system on a grid, allowing potted plants to be stacked vertically in modular columns or walls.
Fairytale Feel with Forest Rug by Angela Adams
Printed rugs can be a great way to add visual interest to a room (“It really ties the room together”) and rarely has one rug made such a big impact as this one. The Forest Rug by Angela Adams makes this home feel like a woodland retreat.
Indoor Plants as Room Dividers
Add greenery and divide a large space at the same time. While in this case, the shrubs are planted in a built-in niche specifically made for this purpose, you could achieve a similar room screen effect with potted plants.
