Embracing nature at home comes in two forms: incorporating more time outdoors in your lifestyle, and bringing elements found outside inside. The Lakemoore Drive house is a great example of a place where it’s easy to do both. With its terrific Palm Springs style, a back yard made for outdoor living, and use of natural stone interiors, you may just fall in love with it like I did:

As you think about incorporating nature into your interior design, be sure to consider using live-edge wood elements. Live-edge refers to the practice of showing the natural edge of the material, rather than an edge that has been cut or shaped by hand. Stone and wood both lend themselves to showing more natural texture and beauty through the live-edge treatment, and isn’t that what embracing natural elements in your rooms is all about?

The use of live-edge wood in interior design has been around since the first tree stump was used as a stool, but when Dwell founder Lara Hedberg Deam incorporated it into her kitchen, people took notice.
