There's no doubt that we have 'embraced' the eco-friendly lifestyle, linking ourselves with the earth and its bounty, and this connection to nature is as well-established as it's ever been. This earthy connection has become quite evident by the way we're seeing colors and materials being used daily. For example, the use of fresh, colorful produce, especially pomegranate, persimmon and fig as well as materials like burlap, linen and well-worn containers.
Designs for this sustainable theme have a rustic, organic and wholesome feel mixed with a touch of “retro-industrial” vibe. Obviously, exotic flowers and foliage like Protea, Grevillea and Leucadendron compliment this style perfectly.
When fabulous flowers, fruit, fabric and containers are combined we can't help but feel humbled and ground by nature's bounty.
