Going back to nature takes on new meaning when it refers to a design preference rather than a lifestyle choice.

Economic as well as aesthetic considerations are increasingly coming into play as people re-think how they want their personal havens to look.


Self-reliance and sustainability are guiding principles in a trend that some design experts dub the wilderness style, according to Costmoworlds.com.


"A new interest in crafts from the past, including milling and wicker-weaving are evolving. People are looking for distinctive individualistic features marked by imperfection not perfection. A new organic look is being created, which nature captures in all its forms, characteristics and materials," the website reports.


Ecology is influencing the manufacturing techniques used to make furniture and home décor products, and shows itself in natural shapes, untreated materials to give a natural look to furnishings and designs inspired by crafts from past eras. A new generation of designers is reviving old-time skills and craftsmanship for contemporary home styles.


For window treatments that provide a natural look, faux wood blinds come in the same colors and textures as wood blinds, but have the added benefits of being washable and unaffected by humidity.
