Bringing nature into your home décor is one of the most beautiful and rewarding ways to change up your living space. With a few easy steps, you can create a more stylish and serene home with natural elements.
One of the easiest ways to bring nature into your home is with houseplants. There is nothing like a bit of greenery to anchor a space and create a feeling of relaxation. Plan your plants the same way that you plan your furniture. Think about both the overall look of your home and what you want to place in each room for function and beauty. Small trees or large potted plants can look great, but they need room to grow. Good quality silk options can be a great choice if you don’t have a green thumb or love the look of plants that you know won’t thrive with your weather.
If you have lovely window or patio doors, take advantage of all that natural light and bring the feeling of the outdoors in by using sheer panels or windows without coverings: the more natural light, the better. Whether you have a wooded view, lovely flower beds, or a small collection of potted plants outside, make sure that you can see them from indoors. Take advantage of outdoor plants as an easy way to help your home be child-friendly and pet-friendly. You can enjoy your plants while not worrying if little people or furry family members will dig them up and make a mess.
There is nothing like the look of evergreen to brighten your décor during fall and winter. This is a popular choice for Christmas wreath and Christmas garland, but why stop there? Evergreen can bring the feeling of nature into your home all season long. An evergreen wreath on a charger with white Christmas candles is a beautiful choice for a dining room table or sideboard centerpiece. You could also bring this look into the living room on a coffee table or even into your bedroom on a dresser or side table.
Flameless candle options are also a handy choice, as they are safer to leave unattended. Although the smell of fresh pine is a beautiful addition to your home, you can also buy artificial evergreen wreaths and boughs, which will look beautiful year after year.
Flowers instantly bring the beauty of nature into your home. A vase with fresh-cut flowers will add to the beauty and enjoyment of any room. If you have a flower garden, enjoy the luxury of freshly cut flowers of your own. If not, treat yourself to flowers from your local florist or grocer. A bunch of dried flowers tied with ribbon or made into potpourri and placed in a bowl can be a lovely accent piece, too.
If someone in your home is allergic to flowers or just like easy options, go for high-quality silk flowers. They can be just as pretty as the real thing, and you can have different arrangements that you swap out at different times of the year to keep the look fresh. You can decorate with silk flowers anywhere from your front door to any room in your home. Floral throw pillows can be a fun touch, too.
Don’t forget the beauty of wood furniture when you are thinking about bringing nature into your home décor. Furniture that shows the wood's natural grain is a timeless look that will add to the appeal of your home for years to come.
Wicker furniture will bring the feel of nature into your home. Whether you have sets of wicker furniture in your living room, bedroom, sunroom, or sprinkled throughout your home as lovely accents, wicker looks lovely and has a grounding effect. For your deck or patio, teak furniture is a great choice.
Don’t forget the little touches of texture that can bring nature into your home, too. Seagrass baskets are beautiful and useful as both storage and décor. You can create a terrarium as an accent piece, mixing the natural texture of plants with the sparkle and gloss of glass. Seashells can make lovely accent pieces that evoke memories of a beach vacation. Interesting rocks collected on hikes or pretty crystals that you’ve bought can bring the outdoors in, brighten your day, and make good conversation pieces, too.
However, it works with your unique style, enjoy some natural décor in your home.
