Have you ever wondered the perfection nature brings? A lot of the time we take the things around us for granted, the air we breathe, the orange we suck on, the beautiful sound of rustling leaves etc. We do not pay attention to the details these things hold. This is such a shame because the most beautiful things are the ones designed by nature.
Take for instance the pebble, we see it everyday, we walk on it, but pay no mind to it. The stone is so well rounded with its nice uneven curves, worn smooth by the action of water and in varying shades of subtle grey. It is perfect and undiluted beauty.
Bringing nature into you home doesn’t necessarily mean plants or falling water, pebbles and other natural stones will look great too. Here are a few ideas to get you on your way.
Put your heart out there with this stone heart. Hang it on your deck, balcony or wherever you want to share the love.

The shower walls are covered with river rock pebbles. They come mounted on mesh sheets, generally 12×12 size. The white colour looks pleasant with the blue frosted glass. Because it is in a shower, the wood is probably Teak. I’m guessing instead of having a finish on it, they probably just oiled it with tongue oil.
This river stone rectangular mats with rounded corners are sized down to dress up the garden as footpaths. It can be used indoor or outdoor.
Concrete/stone plates as a walkway… Looks great with the gray stones
This one below isn’t real pebbles, looks like tiles. Don’t you just love the clean white contemporary look ?
The mix of metal and pebbles gives this tea light a modern and organic at the same time. I love the combination and how it feels soft and edgy at the same time. They would be great on a table or placed around the edges of a patio to transition into the garden.
