Successful design, whether amidst the soaring skyscrapers of a city or against the backdrop of a snow-capped summit, will always incorporate the human element. Our need to connect with our environment has become a major component of planning and designing our living and working spaces. Thus, green building practices and the materials being used have evolved into a much more holistic approach.

Not only should building materials be sustainable, but they should contribute to the well-being of the people who live and work in them.

One material that seems to profoundly imbue this concept is natural earth wall plaster. Evoking most of our senses (beautiful to the eye with soft, sound-attenuating properties, soothing organic textures, and odor absorption), earth plasters are well suited to enrich our spaces and connect us back to nature.

Matthew Berglund, with Luxe Plaster in Crested Butte, Colorado, works with many clients attuned to this desire in their home projects. A recent remodel in Mount Crested Butte is a lovely example of soothing, neutral colors, natural wood elements, and the beautiful, breathing natural plaster walls with their suede-like finish and subtle color variation and texture. The result is warm, inviting, serene, uplifting, and most importantly, highly livable.
