Erica Tanov is a fashion and homewares designer who finds her muse in nature.  We talk with her about her new book, Design By Nature, in which she shares her creative process, from inspiration to a final product that is graceful, soulful and very beautiful.  What we love most about Erica is her insight into the dark and messy side of nature, along with the sublime.  She takes us through different aspects of decorating as seen through her unique lens.  Tree bark becomes multiple layers of monochromatic textures and weeds become a free form, wild mix of color and pattern.  You are going to start looking at your home in a completely new way after spending a little time with Erica today!
