THE NEW NATURALISTS. Inside the Homes of Creative Collectors
Twenty Collectors open their Homes to reveal the weird and wonderful World of natural Objects
From cabinets of curiosities to today’s interest in foraged decorations, obsessive and eclectic collectors of natural objects have long filled their homes with their finds – everything from fossils and feathers to seeds and dried flowers. This book offers a glimpse inside twenty homes
of the most interesting and creative collectors, revealing the stories behind their collections and how they celebrate their love of nature in their everyday spaces.
This new generation of naturalists are using their collections to craft creative careers and decorate their homes with their finds. From a German manor filled with antique taxidermy to the Paris apartment of a sculptor working with feathers and an Italian beachside retreat that showcases foraged shells and pebbles, this book provides a wealth of inspiration for celebrating the beauty of the world around us more sustainably. Practical tips
on everything from curating a shelf of objects or using them to decorate walls and surfaces offer plenty of ideas the reader can apply in their own homes. With our ever- increasing interest in finding new ways to reconnect with nature, this will be inspirational reading for all those who want to bring the outdoors in.
