that the materials we use be natural. Nothing made by human hands comes close to what is found naturally. The luminosity, variety and overall character of natural materials bring a home closer to us, as we want to touch, see and experience these homes all the more. As for maintenance, a well-detailed and
well-installed natural material will often look good for decades, while most things manufactured can wear out their welcome in much too short a time. Think about using quality natural materials and, if budget is an issue, save money elsewhere, such as by building less house.

mattress material. Many big-brand mattresses are made with synthetic blends. And while this keeps costs lower than for beds made with all-natural materials, most synthetics don't allow air to circulate as well. “The coziest mattresses are the ones that are upholstered with natural materials, like wool,
supports and natural or synthetic fibers, depending on the price. The more natural fibers in the blend, the more air circulation in the mattress.

lets the natural materials and the views stand out. Driftwood, a found branch and wood trusses and planks add up to what Coastal Modern author Tim Clarke dubs "Scandia Surf," a look that embraces pleasing proportions, uncluttered spaces and natural materials.

an all-natural material made from linseed oil, resins, wood flour and more — fell out of favor as synthetic flooring came into vogue. But in recent years, its green cred and retro-cool look have caught the attention of ecoconscious consumers and style savants. It's perfect for old-fashioned cottages and
made of natural materials, including linseed oil, and is inherently antimicrobial — a pretty neat trait for a kitchen.Linoleum is available in sheets, tiles or planks. If you're not creating a pattern with tiles, I recommend using sheets, as you'll have fewer joints and fewer places for the floor to show
before the material is sold; without this coating, the floors may need periodic waxing and polishing. Linoleum is also tricky to work with, so even hardcore DIY-ers will likely need help from a pro.Cost: About $4 to $7 per square foot, uninstalled. Custom colors and patterns add to the price tag.More about

Materials. “When I am helping clients select rugs or carpeting for their homes I always go to natural materials like wool, or natural-material blends like wool, cotton, jute, sisal,” notes interior designer Anastasia Faiella. “Wool rugs are the best, because they are easy to clean, and, being an
organic material, they look better to me while feeling good on bare feet.”Faiella is quick to point out that wool rugs tend to carry a higher price point than synthetic rugs made of acrylic. If this is a short-term fix, a rug in a lower price point may make more sense. However, a good-quality rug can always
