I love using natural accents in my home. They do not look nearly as good as the picture in this book. I would love this resource to help me bring the outdooors into my home.
Karen Varney says
Always on the hunt for natures bounty to decorate with, would love to see her ideas!
I have never decorated with natural accents. Would love to have this book to get some ideas!
Amy Kaminski says
What a cool book! Can’t wait to flip through all those gorgeous pages!
I like to put plants around my house.
Delilah Gillio says
I bring the outdoors in with plants and flowers. I would love the opportunity to learn more about it!
Debbie McLean says
Everything looks lovely!
Corina Molinar says
I Love it. I try to decorate with natural accents as much as i can through out the house.
This is not something I am very good at. However, I realize when I really take the time to break down my thoughts on why I like a certain photo off of Pintrest or a blog, I realize it is the texture brought into the space by nature. My hope is to try to focus on this when styling my home for a particular season.
I use plants and some flowers around my house. During the summer I have lanterns with sand, seashells and coral we have collected from different beaches on our kitchen table, as well as labeled bottles of sand from vacations on a tray with other natural elements sitting on a chest. Wintertime I use pine cones in various containers. I’m sure I would find many more ideas in this book.
Pamela Walters says
I love decorating with flowers, branches, berries and other interesting bits I find while out in my yard or walking around the neighborhood. Seeing organic objects around the house reminds me of God’s awesomeness. He is the best decorator,after all.
Plants! Pinecones! Interesting branches! Mosses! I LOVE having natural accents in our home!!!
I’m always looking for ways to bring the outside in. What an inspiration this book will be!
Libby Zeigler says
Thank you so much for the opportunity to win such a lovely book! I enjoy decorating with seashells, driftwood, flowers, plants and reclaimed wood. I love using God’s handmade treasures in our home. 🙂
Lisa Mothersead says
We find nature calming and bringing those natural items into our home has always been something we’ve enjoyed. Except at Christmas, I keep the decor and seasonal decor very simple. I use baskets, trays, and bowls and change out the items when needed. In the fall, pinecones , pumpkins, and gourds. In the winter pinecones and winter greenery, especially from our holly trees. In the spring and summer, flowers and fruit and vegetables from the Farmer’s Market and from our yard, especially pink roses from the two rose bushes I planted with and for my daughters as they left the nest. I have no ceramic or that kind of stuff around. I also like the burlap balls and balls that look natural like moss balls, etc… No more seasonal stuff in the attic. Just Christmas. Everything gets dumped at the recycling center at end of use/season. I also use no heavy window treatments. We have plantation shutters that swing open and blinds that we can pull up. Lots of windows and light and a view to the outside is the best decor ever!
Lynda Lamon says
I use plants! Thanks for the chance to win this book!!
sandra davis says
We live in the country and finding things in nature to bring inside is a joy. I have a cutting garden, although it is small, it provides me with bright blooms which keep around my house in old found containers from my trips “junking”. Your book looks lovely.
Cindi Thomas says
Love natural accents in my home. Herb bouquets from my garden, branches in vases with or without leaves, beautiful rocks from hikes as vase filler, shells, flowers, etc., etc.! Beautiful and free!
I love to cut flowers from my garden and put them in vases all over my home. It looks so fresh and beautiful, and depending on what flowers I pick at what times, it makes the whole house smell lovely.
Carol Weiler says
I have always used natural elements….birds nests, twigs I pick up on walks, dried flowers and grasses, etc. but I’d love a book to show me how to artfully display these treasured items.
I have a few natural accents. I love a vase of fresh flowers. Year round. I have a couple of orchids that I rotate as they flower, too. In the fall/winter I use some shed antlers on top of my coffee table books. At Christmas, I use fresh greenery on my mantel and pine cones in a bowl. I have a collection of shells in a bathroom . Do wicker/rattan baskets count? I leave a passion for baskets.. I would love to sit with this book and discover the many ways to bring nature into your home.
I’m forever clipping sprigs of shrubs, grasses, and tree limbs and arranging them in my house like flowers. They’re free! And I love the neutral/natural look. My sister makes fun of me but they make me happy. 🙂
Ann Meighan says
The only way I bring nature in is through houseplants and i always try to have a few fresh flowers on the kitchen table. I would really appreciate having this book to learn how to bring more of the outdoors in.
Nancy H says
I would love to put some “beachy” nature in my house!
Linda Byrnes says
I use things from around my yard…fresh or dried hydrangeas…branches and berries. But I like hunting in Marshlalls or HomeGoods for natural looking things. Lately, they have had natural slices of wood that double as cutting boards or a way to create a collected looking vignette by placing a small grouping of objects on top of them.
Michelle Mortensen says
Because I live by the beach, I love to bring home little treasures from the sea – shells, rocks, driftwood, etc.. Then, I incorporate these into little vignettes in my home.

I am a total outdoor person. I practically live in the garden. So when I am forced to come inside, I like to see outdoorsy things! I decorate with architectural pieces. I use floral fabrics. We like geodes and rocks and sea shells. And cut flowers. Nothing better than cut flowers straight from my own garden. 🙂
I love having flowers in my home!
Kathy hoprich says
I want to bring lots of fresh cut flowers in.
I have begun using plants in my décor and I love adding natural elements that I find outside..
Amy M. says
I love bringing nature indoors. I have several discarded birds nests under domes and ironstone pitchers filled with feathers. This book looks beautiful ~ thanks for a shot at winning a copy!
Tracy Snyder says
It is so beautiful in the autumn, leaves, pine ones, fall flowers, etc.. Thank you for this giveaway opportunity, would love this book!
I keep bowls of seaglass and shells in the bathroom, grow pots of grass and catnip in the kitchen windows, and have a basket full of small stones that my children collected when they were younger
Lynzee Buck says
I bring nature into my home by not dusting for weeks.
I like using plants, fresh florals and greens, feathers, shells and pine cones.
Pam Ballard says
I love this book. Would love all the help and inspiration I can get. I love to go on walks and collect flowers and sticks and make arrangements for around my home. I have added some of my dads deer horns as well. Thanks for the chance.
Jerry Stocks says
My garden room is full of staghorn ferns, and I use fresh cut arrangements in the rest of my house.
Teresa R says
I’m always looking for unusual shaped rocks and branches, picking up feathers, and bringing roses from my bushes into the house. I have seashells I’ve collected and display in small fish bowls
I like to use houseplants and bowls of fruit.
I use plants, flowers and grapevine. Also in the fall have used wild turkey feathers that I have found out on walks.
Dena Moore says
Whenever we go somewhere, the kids and I are always on the lookout for something cool to bring home…sand, shells, rocks…even tree branches or leaves. We still have the pine cones from past pine cone races we would have down a neighboring stream when they were little! There is not only great beauty in nature…there are great experiences and memories.
Shirley@Housepitality Designs says
I have always been a person to bring the outdoors in with plants and other elements from Mother Nature. You will also see many garden elements in my home such as concrete garden finials that flank my fireplace and garden stands that hold anything from ironstone pitchers to seasonal items such as pumpkins. Congrats to Stacy on her wonderful book…how exciting!
Christy Spurlock says
I normally use natural accents during the fall and winter seasons. I love using magnolias and the beautiful pine cones from my area. Looking for more ideas to bring in more natural accents.
Christy Greagor says
Lots of color brings the outdoor in in my house!
I would love to win a copy Natural Accents! What a great inspiration!!
I have always loved decor items made with things you can pick up outside. In the fall I use pinecones in a dough bowl on the porch, branches in urns on each side of the fireplace. I add other items for color. Last winter a friend helped me make 40 crosses from mossy sticks held together with vines all picked up in the woods. This was for an event in church. I used the crosses at Easter to decorate my tables and have used them on the porch and inside. i have shells picked up on the beach in the powder room. On year for Thanksgiving
when I could afford nothing else, I picked up “Popcorn” tree leaves from the yard. They were bright yellow and red. I washed and dried them and just sprinkled them down the middle of the table. They were beautiful.
I LOVE bringing the outdoors inside. It adds the perfect amount of texture and depth to the room. I’m sure Stacey’s book would be so helpful in doing so!!
I bring in fresh flowers from my garden, display vegetables I grow, and driftwood I have gathered at the beach.
I haven’t decorated using any natural elements, but I would love to learn. This book looks like the perfect tool!
