Raw Materials

Natural textures lend themselves beautifully to a rustic or country themed space.

A rope-framed mirror made of natural jute — such as this beauty from L.L. Bean — makes a lovely nautical statement. A trio of raffia-detailed decanters from HomeSense is sure to dazzle at your next patio party, too. This rough-hewn bird bath from Crate & Barrel is a also great find; the handmade terra cotta basin works outdoors (perched atop a plant stand), but we like it best indoors as an oversized bowl.

Raffia detailed decanters and bottles, $6-$13. At HomeSense. Nautical rope mirror, 21" dia. $50. Though L.L. Bean. Grey-wash birdbath bowl, 2.75" h. 6.25" dia. At Crate & Barrel.
