by Lauren Chorpening

Something about fall makes us want to surround ourselves with a little more grit. Natural elements such as pine cones, twigs and berry branches purposely make their way into homes this time of year. For some homes, earthy style is not a rotating decoration, but a design element of the space. The style can range from material selections to accessories to the overall feeling and aesthetic of entire rooms. We’ve seen beautiful, innovative and inspiring uses of earthy decor in Sneak Peeks over the years. Here are a dozen gorgeous rooms that will encourage you to bring some of the outside in. –Lauren

Audrey Bodisco's home is a beautiful mix of mid-century modern, minimalist and earthy styles. "We try to fill our home with both beautiful and functional items, opting for handmade or secondhand whenever possible. Now that we have a child, we also want it to be child-friendly while keeping with our design philosophy," Audrey notes.
