For many of us, nature is an endless source of rejuvenation. A place of peace we can escape to when the reality of the modern world get to be too overwhelming. A place that recharges us, alights our senses, ignites our imagination and gives us the energy to dive back in. Why wouldn’t you try and emulate some of that majesty and wonder in your own home? In the latest projects I tried to bring some of the power and beauty of nature into the house:
The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that humans have strived for over the centuries. We love the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space.
From the bark of a tree to the soft feel of grass underfoot to the sturdiness of a rock wall, nature is full of textures, and those textures can be explored in your home. Give your senses something to grab a hold to so you can revisit nature’s textures in your home anytime you’d like.
The more we get involved with technology, the more people want to surround themselves with the textures, colors, and patterns of nature.
Wood wall art will help you feel closer to nature and add an organic touch. Admit it, exotic things excite and attract us!

“Artemano, a decade-old Quebec company that sells ethically- and sustainably-sourced furnishings. Owners Shimon Finkelstein and Eyal Shoam source handmade wood products in South and Southeast Asia and ship them to Canada for a final tweak to suit a Western design aesthetic. The resulting pieces, which highlight the wood’s grain, knots and indentations, are rustic, exotic and have minimalist shapes that belong in modern homes”. (Toronto Life)
Renewal and regeneration are pillars of the Artemano philosophy. On a constant search for new ways to reveal the timeless beauty of old wood, Artemano rescues the wood from old Indonesian fishing boats, railway ties – or sleepers – from India, old construction wood from Thailand, as well as salvaged drift wood and storm-felled trees. Furniture crafted from reclaimed wood is steeped in history and character, breathing new life into the old. And the cycle continues.
Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy that includes the acceptance and appreciation of simplicity, the ordinary, and the imperfect and it can be described as finding beauty in things that are impermanent and incomplete. Wabi-Sabi is an aesthetic, a state of mind, a mix of emotions, and a way of perceiving life . . . the acceptance of the cycles of change, including life and death.
Wabi-sabi concept remind me that we are all transient beings on this planet, that our bodies, as well as the material world around us, are in the process of returning to dust. Through Wabi-sabi, I learn to embrace the beauty of the old and the mystical, where the presence of cracks and scratches are considered to be symbolic of the passing of time, weather…
I love it, it so perfectly fits how I like to work and create. I have always been drawn to weathered objects that have character, that symbolise a sense of timelessness and history, each with their own story and season. I find this practice to be a beautiful, meditative one that brings me great calm and peace.
