Elemental Style

Natural materials establish a dominant hold over the latest lighting designs. Far from earth-crunchy, these sophisticated looks shed a stylish new light on shell, wood and fiber. The best designs feel handmade and, at times, extravagant, pulled together with a fun-loving approach to design.

Native North Carolinian Tracy Bulla has been Home Accents Today's product editor since 2002. As a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Tracy's first foray into reporting involved covering the financial markets. This short-lived enterprise resulted in no great loss to the world of finance when it became apparent that the reporter could not balance her own checkbook. Tracy then followed her lifelong passion for fashion into the glamorous world of design where she is continuously in thrall to the lure of beautiful, well-designed objects of desire. Lo, Tracy's pampered Pekingese, shares her appreciation for exquisite style by choosing to only chew up the most expensively embellished Italian shoes.
