Why settle for manmade synthetics when you can go au natural?

When it comes to interior design, inspiration from nature is nothing new.  But bringing a touch of nature into your living space never goes out of style.  Whether you're a minimalist or a maximalist, natural elements will not only make your home look stunning, but they will also have a positive impact on your mood. So, let's dive into the world of nature-inspired interior design and discover how it can transform your space and make you smile.

Bringing the outdoors in: A breath of fresh air

Imagine stepping into your living room and being greeted by lush greenery, vibrant flowers, and the soothing sound of a trickling waterfall. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, with nature-inspired interior design, you can create a mini oasis right in your own home. Whether it's a vertical garden, potted plants, or a nature-themed wallpaper, incorporating elements of nature can instantly freshen up your space and give it a calming ambiance.

Colors that mimic the wonders of nature

Colors have a powerful effect on our emotions, and what better way to evoke a sense of tranquility than by using nature-inspired hues? From earthy tones like moss green and sandy beige to ocean blues and sunny yellows, these colors can bring a sense of harmony and balance to any room. So, go ahead and paint your walls, choose furniture, and accessorize with colors that mimic the wonders of nature.

Textures that make you want to touch everything

One of the joys of nature is the variety of textures it offers. From the smoothness of pebbles to the roughness of tree bark, incorporating natural textures into your interior design can add depth and visual interest to your space. Think cozy wool rugs, rustic wooden furniture, soft linen curtains, woven rattan. These textures not only make your space more inviting but also create a tactile experience that can instantly lift your mood.

Let there be light: Nature's greatest gift

Lighting plays a crucial role in interior design, and natural light is the holy grail. So, throw open those curtains, embrace the sunshine, and let it flood your space. Natural light not only makes your home feel more spacious but also has a positive effect on your well-being. It can boost your mood, increase productivity, and even improve your sleep. So, make the most of nature's greatest gift and let the light shine in.

Embrace the elements: Earth, wind, fire, and water

To truly bring nature into your space, consider incorporating the four elements: earth, wind, fire, and water. A crackling fireplace can create a cozy atmosphere, a tabletop fountain can add a soothing sound, and a gentle breeze from an open window can bring a breath of fresh air. Wooden pieces like palmwood ground any space with their earthiness.  By embracing these elements, you can create a harmonious and balanced environment that will make you feel connected to nature.


Final thoughts: Nature's gift to your home and soul

So, there you have it. By infusing your space with elements inspired by nature, you can transform your home into a sanctuary that not only looks beautiful but also uplifts your spirits. From the calming presence of plants to the soothing colors and textures, nature has a way of making us feel grounded and at peace. So, why not let nature work its magic and create a space that brings you joy every time you walk through the door?

I love designing with nature in mind! Using a lot of green on the walls and furniture and also displaying found items like shells, bottles of river sand, and large rocks and crystals on wood shelves. Avoiding sharp square corners wherever possible and choosing more fluid forms as well as using natural textures like wood and jute over man made textures like glass or metal is also key with my aesthetic.

Devon Pickford - August 30, 2023

Kristen F - August 29, 2023

I’m not good with plants. Trying to take care of my freinds pepper plant so I bring it inside, it’s too hot! I think some tips to bring the outside in would be to do some resin projects. My boyfriend brings me flowers all the time and I want to start encasing them in resin. Also have some shells I want to do a resin project with.

Anne Holub - August 28, 2023

Plants are so great for bringing the outside in but also having something you can watch grow and transform in front of your eyes. Plants can tell us whole stories without words. Isn’t that amazing? We learn to read their body language and they don’t have “bodies.” They’re a wonder. And we get to keep them around and take care of them.

One of the best tips for bringing the outside in for home decor is to incorporate natural elements into your living space. For example, incorporate natural materials like wood, stone, or rattan into your decor. You can use wooden furniture, countertops, or flooring to bring in an earthy feel. Incorporate stone accents in the form of sculptures or decorative elements. Rattan furniture or baskets can add a bohemian touch.
