Naturalwalls was founded in 1997 by Scott Nelson after a tour of Europe where he was inspired by the natural materials that are used in traditional and modern buildings.
“A sheep shed in Tuscany or Provence is beautiful because it is made out of the very land on which it sits. How do we bring that kind of warmth and authenticity to the building methods that are most commonly used in the states?”
“The four ‘heritage’ plaster materials – clay, lime, gypsum and natural cement, were the answer to my personal search for timeless architectural beauty. I researched the old recipes and techniques to find that these materials could be directly incorporated into our contemporary buildings in place of our standard petrochemical based paints and stucco.”
“For the past 20 years I’ve worked with many great clients on beautiful projects across Los Angeles and North America. I’m still just as inspired by the feel of a clay wall or the way the light plays across a limestone surface, as I was when I walked down those alleys in Paris and Rome.”
Scott brings his background in the arts to every home, store, or office that he shapes. The intuitive sense of color and texture exhibited in his paintings translates directly into the balance of these elements that he is continually striving to achieve for his clients.
