How to Bring the Outdoors Inside? We give you fresh ideas by styling with plants and innovative uses of natural materials.
There’s an ever-growing focus on Sustainability and the importance of living with a more simplistic approach.
With concepts like Circular Design and Living Green making room in our lives and an increasing time spent in our houses there is no surprise we want to make our homes reflect the outdoors.
Decorate with Plants
The obvious way to create a green interior is to use plants in your interior decor. There is a wide variety to choose from and if you live in an apartment there are many low-maintenance plants.
Create a stunning focal point with larger indoor plants or add a touch of colour and texture with smaller house plants such as cacti and bonsai.
Apply Earthy Textures
Pair warm, earthy tones with textured throws and layers of linen for a room that’s so cozy, everyone will want to spend time in it.
Take Advantage of Light
Lighting is an important aspect of interior design as it enhances the aesthetic appeal and creates the mood and ambiance of a living space. Lighting fixtures that illuminate a room creates a safe and comfortable environment besides adding style to the interior décor.
Cultivate a Interior Garden
More than the use of plants here and there, a interior garden can really boost the quality of your home. You can opt for plants inside pots or go bold with a green living wall or a vertical garden to really Bring the Outdoors Inside.
Utilize Wood and Other Natural Materials
We are naturally gravitating towards a concern with wellness and human well-being that go hand in hand with the use of natural materials.
Alongside a trend for Sustainability and Circular Design, handmade products and natural materials such as wood, rattan or stone are making a comeback.
Create the Perfect Palette
Choosing the perfect color scheme can be a deal breaker when trying to bring “Mother Nature” to your home. There are many nature-inspired color palettes; you can go more soft-looking with a white & green combo, or choose a more rich look made of brownish tones that blend forest-harvested hues and textures.
If you are lucky to have a Patio use it!
In a time where it’s asked of us to stay inside, time outside is more and more valuable. Anyone that has a patio or a balcony can now learn how to decorate it and really improve this space that was for many times left forgotten.
