Natural homes appeal to the human side of our soul… that side that knows we are part of nature.

Natural homes appeal to the human side of our soul… that side that knows we are part of nature.


“Most of us live in very conventional homes with smooth, plasterboard walls, nice square corners, regulation height ceilings and perfectly symmetrical windows. They’re nice, they’re neat, but if we really, really look at them, most of our houses are very boring. On the other hand, we have ‘natural homes’. Sure there might be lots of dust traps, but they appeal to the human side of our soul… that side that knows we are a part of nature. That’s why most of us find ‘natural homes’ strangely appealing.

For one thing the façade of most natural homes makes them look like they came out of a fairytale. The interiors usually confirm the impression. There are no, or at least few, corners. There are nooks and crannies. There are textures and nature’s colours everywhere you look.
This collection will take you on a natural homes tour. You’ll discover the materials used in building these homes, and the effect they have on the aesthetics and the overall design of the home.”
