Organic Design, Natural Elements and Harmony
Organic design uses natural elements like wood, plants, water and is a style that is cohesive with green living, consciously designing your interiors so as to be in harmony with nature. The style blends in the old world principles that we are composed of the five elements earth, fire, water, air and ether and maintaining a balance within these elements gives us a harmonious life.
Rustic reclaimed woods used in the carved barn doors that are handcarved with florals and twines bring in the elements of the forest and are so beautifully earthy as well. They can be used as closet doors, sliding barn doors or as room dividers. The artistic door panels bring in the earth element and have clean lines that work well with modern interiors.
The elaborately detailed consoles with arched facades are the epitome of natural design, taking their inspiration from arches that embraced the entrances of old palaces in the bygone days. Reclaimed woods with the color seeped deeply into the wood grain, the old door coffee tables are reminiscent of old world furniture, when everything was made by hand, iron nail studs and artisan construction, the very vibe of the furniture is so earthing and peaceful.
Antique doors, Old Indian Haveli doors were handmade with raw woods, thick solid teak columns and the lintel that joined the column were carved with old world symbols of an urn that symbolizes prosperity. Bringing in the water element with the wood element is nurturing and leads to growth. The blue patina on the doors gives a feel of the oceans and seas that are more a part of the Mother Earth itself. The principles of the five elements are everywhere around us, we have to be open to their energies to learn from them.
The armoires take on the natural element of fire with the carved sunrays and medallions bringing in the energy of the sun, the vibrancy and source of life. The burnished woods and brass hardware, the cabinets are an artistic creation of the finest traditional and classic design, showing an influence on the Spanish ad Colonial Era.
Healthy living is the natural result of an organic interior, balance within all the five elements and a conscious effort to stay in harmony with nature makes green living a lifestyle and takes us back to our roots. The core of our being is in harmony with our soul.
