Cabinet of Natural Curiosities is a large, heavy book filled with amazing illustrations of animals, plants and insect by Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba (1665-1736). The book includes lots of corals, shells, and many other ocean creatures.
This is what it says on the Publishers Website, "Albertus Seba's Cabinet of Natural Curiosities is one of the 18th century's greatest natural history achievements and remains one of the most prized natural history books of all time." Collection via Maison.
Designer Patricia Gray wrote on her blog, "This book may go down in the Guinness World Book of Records as the most photographed book." Here used by Tobi Fairley to accentuate her design. Without a doubt Natural Curiosities makes a fantastic coffee table book.
This was the room before. Leisa's beautiful home is now a vacation rental and you can learn all about it at Summer Dream.
Then others, like designer Steven Gambrel featured here, paste the pages of Cabinet of Natural Curiosities on the wall. Here you see the powder room in his cottage in Sag Harbor, NY. It's busy, but I love it! As I mentioned here, a small bathroom or powder room is a great space to experiment and go wild!
