    Adding natural elements into a web design can really give it a calm feel, so it works great for natural products and portfolio design. Clouds are a really popular element in design work, but I love the use of other nature styles such as stars, wood, fields and birds. I like the design with the pink turkey too.

    The Carbon Directory has a nice, green natural design – can’t remember the URL so you’ll have to Google it, but it’s worth a look.

    I truly love these sites. I think the natural and nature-esque look of these types of sites is catching on. For good reason too! I am actually in the process of starting a green office chairs site that will feature the same type of look. Thanks for the inspiration, I truly mean it!

    Some of these sites are truly beautiful! I noticed a theme of clouds in a lot of them, which is funny because I am using clouds in the current design I am working on. I wonder if that is a good thing or bad thing?? haha

    The theme of nature within web design seems to be a popular concept amongst designers and with good reason. Nature provides a wealth of inspiration when it comes to colour schemes, textures and inspiring visuals. I think what stands out to me is the fresh, vibrate feel that the sites seem to share. I particularly like the Ennea site and the Rogue-Dolls site for their subtle yet effective background patterns.

      Ryan,
      You have a good point about color scheme inspiration coming from nature. The design itself doesn’t have to have clouds, trees, birds or anything else in it to have been impacted by nature. Using a photo as a staring point for color schemes is one of my preferred methods for developing a color scheme.
