Just in time for pre-holiday home spruce-ups, designers are going back to nature for inspiration. But this time there’s a twist. Organically-inspired silhouettes and textures are being paired with rich metallics, sparkly crystals and other materials that luxe things up. One look is all it takes to see that nature is, indeed, showing its glamorous side.
