An Ongoing Trend: Sediment, Swirls & Stone

In a post a while back, I discussed a trend I love in interior design, and one that has enjoyed more than a few minutes in the decor spotlight: stone. On the walls, as furniture, or in artwork (or represented as such), I love the organic appeal of stone and its ability to add a sense of opulence to a space.

An speaking of, in general I’ve become quite taken with organic modern design. Maybe it’s that longing for minimalism I mentioned earlier, or the coziness that natural accents, like a woven rug or live edge table bring, but every time I stumble upon a home tour where a room is more or less filled with wooden furniture and layers of natural textiles–and of course, a fuzzy rug or sheepskin–I just want to throw all of my random findings out the window and bring in the neutrals!

Not really…but I do love love love the idea of organic modern and the feeling of calm it gives me. Stone gives me that same sense, with some added glam, and I’ve watched designers and creatives turn the trend into marbled swirls of pattern on walls and floors, and layers of color in artwork.

The first time I saw this sediment wallpaper browsing through Pinterest, I was smitten and knew I would try to recreate it (or find the wallpaper) in my own home (one day…).

Sarah Sherman Samuels’ M.O. is designing bright textiles filled with both geometric and organic patterns. This is from her new series of wallpapers!

This “geode” floor created by Pernille Snedker Hansen is color eye candy and so unique! One of the coolest floor “DIYs” I’ve seen (though really it’s her ow beautiful artwork and process).

When it comes to the agate/geode trend, Anthropologie knows what’s up. Not only do they sell an agate top side table, but they also offer this beauty in a few colors.

I love the bold colors in this painting. Not stone, but the layers allude to something similar.

Layers of fringe and fiber? Yes, please! This woven wall hanging from a home tour on The Design Files is stunning and a wonderful example of how organic design moves across mediums. It was created by the home’s owner and a co-founder of this workshop on The Windsor Workshop! Personally, I hope to be able to create pieces like these someday.
