For the most part, natural. Although I do have a little bridge in one tank going over a "river" of little blue stones.

It really depends how you build the tank. Artificial pieces that blend in well with the environment of the tank do just as well as All-Natural pieces.

Mostly I have live plants, "drift wood" I collected and rocks I have collected for the tanks. I do have a little fat man in my puffer tank. I don't mind some decor if done right.

I also think its kind of fun when people have their tank decorated really fun with bright colors and decorations, just not sure I would want to look at something like that everyday.

My daughters tank has fluorescent pink gravel. It's almost mesmerizing!

Do you use wood? What kind? I've been curious about finding my own.

i found most of mine at beaches on various vacations, so i don't really know lol, but all of it has held up for coming up on a year now, and i like the look of it if you do find it... be sure to soak it and boil it very well to get the salt/pollutants out of it. i also have found rocks, shells, and even the occasional plant to use for my tanks.
