The most obvious way to bring nature into your home is with the help of house plants. Be it a herb garden on your windowsill in the kitchen, some hanging pots with baby’s tears in them, or large indoor plants in the corners of your rooms.
In case you want something that you don’t have to take care of too much, you can opt for a succulent or cactus. But if you have the room and time for more, you can even grow lemons or other vegetables inside your kitchen or make use of the outside balcony if you have one. Property company, RWinvest, realises the importance of bringing the outdoors in, and have many properties with communal gardens and green spaces to spark inspiration.
On the other hand, plants like English Ivy and Aloe Vera can clean the air inside your rooms, keeping them fresh, as well as make the rooms look better and uplift the environment.
Natural Textures in Furniture
If you want to give your home a natural feel without bringing in potted plants, you can incorporate nature into your decor in other ways.
Things like wooden furniture, wicker baskets, fruit displays, rocks and twigs in your decor, and natural sheer fabrics like cotton and tweed can help make the space look natural and open, and so can let in a lot of natural light inside the room during the day. It also helps if you keep the space open and airy, which helps you feel like you’re still stuck inside nature.
Posters and Wall Decor
If you can’t bring in plants or the beach, you can definitely incorporate photos and art inspired by the great outdoors. This will help you enjoy some of the best views nature has to offer, all from the comfort of your own home.
Another great way to bring some nature into your home is by nature-inspired decor pieces, like sculptures and vases depicting seashells and birds or flowers.
A Great View
Who says you can’t enjoy nature from the inside of your home? If you have a garden, a front yard, or even a forest nearby, make sure your room has a view of the outdoors. You can have the perfect balance between privacy and the perfect view with the right window coverings, though we would suggest opting for sheer curtains that let in a lot of light instead of any blinds or shutters.
This way nothing will come in the way of you and your view when you want to enjoy it.
The Right Wallpaper
If you don’t want to mess with the rest of your furniture, you can definitely incorporate nature-inspired elements in the wallpaper. This can include anything from florals to fish and even a slightly jungle-inspired finish, as long as you’re confident it looks good and goes with your furniture and decor.
Don’t Block Natural Light
There’s nothing that says nature quite like sunlight does, which is why one of the first things anyone should do while trying to opt for a more natural theme is to make sure you remove any heavy window coverings that were preventing natural light from seeping into your space during the day.
Your room will feel airier, fresher, and even more open with some sunlight streaming in through the windows.
