Pastoral Carpets by Alexandra Kehayoglou
Nature at Your Feet
Many dream of country living, but those who are stuck in the city should perhaps consider bringing nature into their homes instead. A great place to start is to introduce one of the lush carpets designed by Argentinian artist Alexandra Kehayoglou, who hand-crafts each hyper-realistic nature-inspired rug by recycling scrap wool from her parents' carpet factory in Buenos Aires. Just make sure the dog doesn't confuse the rug for the real thing.

A natural wood veneer light is a great way to bring a touch a nature indoors and to tame the harsh white light of modern light bulbs. The flower inspired Agatha and wave inspired Link suspension lights from LZF are perennial favourites.
