In today’s environmentally conscious design world, consumers and designers alike are aiming for a fine balance between modern clean lines and natural elements. It is within this harmony where rugged and earthy materials such as wooden elements, are used beautifully and sustainably alongside smooth concrete and other modern materials.
My dream home would walk this fine line proudly and there is no shortage of architects and designers who are glady filling their portfolio of work with eco-sensitive designs, pushed by the demands of a savvy and environmentally wise client base.
This focus on including natural elements within our homes, see’s a return to a time when we relied on mother nature to provide us with the materials for our home. Now with technology and talented designers on our side, we are able to relish the ability to mesh our modern design aesthetics with the cabin dwelling wood lover within us all!
Here is my pick of some of the fabulous designs out there offering us the best of both worlds.
