NATURE INSPIRED INTERIORS ARE NOW IN TREND!
This season use the wonders of nature to inspire your organic interior design and fill your home with a breath of fresh air every day.
1. Natural Colors and Light The earth tones living room is making a comeback. Browns of every shade are finding their way in. Not just the beiges but the medium and darker tones too. Offset a dark brown with softer colors and lots of natural or natural-looking light. All-around medium-to-dark brown look creates a cozy, tucked-in atmosphere in a den or bedroom. Natural interior design doesn’t begin and end with browns. Greens of all shades, as well as mustards and clay-like colors have their place. A mixture of dark and light furniture is more rustic than having the same brown all around.
2. Use Natural Furniture
The same materials that give porch furniture an outside look can be used in your living room and bedroom. Cane and bamboo can be brought indoors in the form of chairs, side and coffee tables and even couches and sectionals. Mix outdoor-style furniture with modern and contemporary pieces. These furniture adds texture and lightness. Light-grained wood chairs with dark cushions fit right in with a natural theme.
3. Make use of Plants Small plants are always nice is tabletop planters and vases. Terrariums are fun and a shot of greenery displayed in clear cylindrical vases is a creative touch either on a bookcase or wall shelf. But nothing really invokes the outdoors like large plants in generous pots. Ficus are common but think about something completely different, such as cactus or yucca for your Southwest motif.
4. Natural Decor
There are as many possibilities as there are niches in your home.
Use nature picked rocks, crystals, shells, polished tree burls, driftwood and twisted, weatherworn tree branches. Gather them in bowls or stack them on shelves.
Hang curtains of natural fabric.
Use lamps with natural shades and nature touches such as a tree trunk style base.
Find natural looking wood frames for mirror and art.
Select nature motifs in wall art.
5. Nature Inspired Floors
Put your outdoor style where your feet are. Wood look flooring provides the practicality of tile with a natural appearance. The wood look can be found on carpeting and rugs as well.
No matter the weather, every day can be a pleasant through your houseful of nature-inspired design.
