For the eco-enthusiast on your gift list who appreciates the art that can be found organically in nature all around us, head on over to Small By Nature! This online boutique offers simply gorgeous pieces that decorate and accent the home while giving back to a worthwhile cause – shelter animals.
“Mom’s” favorite item is the handcrafted Root Bowl Wood Set that is truly a work of art. Nature comes to life on your table when used as a centerpiece, or filled with bright red apples or sunny lemons! Paired together as a set of two, the Root Bowl Wood Set is so exquisite that you may be tempted to give one as a gift and keep the other one for your own decorative inspiration this season! Each bowl is carved from a species of Chinese Fir called the Shan Mu, which grows in Central China. This lovely bowl brings the outdoors inside, lending an organic, natural feel to the space in which it is placed!
Each set costs $90, and can be purchased online at Small By Nature. For those doing their holiday shopping, Small By Nature is offering a lovely incentive! If you become a friend of Small By Nature on Facebook the company will email you a special code for 10% off your order.
Founded by decorating and color expert Diana Berchan, (and inspired by her diminutive rescue dog Rosie), Small by Nature is a collection of specially chosen items, ranging from stunning candle collections and exquisite pillows to fine art and decorative items (including a suite of pet-friendly products). The site offers unusual and charming accents for the home, men, kids, special occasions, outdoor living and, of course, pets.
In addition to the many products available for sale on the site, Diana offers expert observations and advice in weekly blogs and a special section called “Diana’s Palette” where she presents the latest trends in color and texture and matches them with affordable home accents from the site. All of the items offered on Small by Nature are handpicked by Diana and display her keen sense of style and appreciation for nature. Many of the products are earth-friendly and promote fair trade and all are of the highest quality, influenced by the organic forms, textures and incomparable color combinations found in nature.
Other key features of the Small by Nature website are the photos and bios of animals currently available for adoption. Every month, Diana’s dog Rosie will introduce a new group of furry friends in need of a home, as well as provide information on the non-profit animal shelters receiving financial help as a result of product purchases made on the site.
