The dialogue between interior and exterior spaces reveals a fragmented perception of our environment. American culture has commodified the idea of nature into a pristine landscape. Conventional human architecture and interior design separates those who face economic hardships and those who are privileged. Natural Accents escalates the meaning of natural elements such as dust and bugs that we perceive as unkempt in interior environments, in the form of home accents such as wallpaper, rugs and lighting. These objects invite further intrigue into the fragmented relationship many of us have with nature indoors and outdoors.
