Mother Nature-Approved Decor Picks from Design for Mankind

Aside from providing major styling inspiration, the “Everyday Exotic” stylebook has rekindled our love for anything and everything relating to the great outdoors. So, naturally, we had to ask art and design blogger Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind for her rundown of this summer’s coolest nature-themed decor.

“The temps are heating up and it’s time to head outdoors for summer fun. Or… why not bring the great outdoors inside?” says Erin. “Below are a few of my favorite nature-inspired picks –from art (gem paintings!) to decor (spiders – eek!) and fashion (agate rings!), there’s something incredible to be unearthed in your own home. All lovely, and all Mother Nature-approved. Enjoy!”

1. “Feeling woodsy? This Brenda Houston lamp is green as it is gorgeous.”
2.Russell Leng’s gem paintings are the perfect addition to any space.”
3. “A topography-inspired ceiling lamp? Sold.”
4.Stone of Honey’s pyrite necklace is a hunk of awesome.”
5. “Why not switch out your everyday paperweight for a chunk of calcite? After all, everyone needs a touch of shiny in their life.”
6. “Finally – a spider worth befriending.”
7.Into the Nature is a great read for the hippie in your life.”
8. “Excuse me – you’ve a cicada on your ear.”
9. “If you don’t have yet have a three-legged stool in your home, you’re missing out on some serious odd looks.”
10. “Display a rocky bauble daily for just the right amount of grace and glamour.”
11. Vladimir Koncar’s dirt typography is the perfect font for your next web project.”
