Tips for Integrating Nature into Your Interior Design

Aside from installing nature-inspired tile, there are plenty of ways to integrate nature into your interior design!

Choose Your Favorite Plants

Whether you have a green thumb or do better with faux plants, there are plenty of options to choose from. You can buy fresh (or artificial) flowers or opt for potted plants and trees. Another option is to create terrariums or select easy-to-care-for succulents. Planting herbs on your windowsill is a fun project that not only brings an element of nature into your home, but also provides you with delicious ingredients for your next meal. Additionally, a vertical garden feature will truly stand out and make an impact.

Include Other Natural Elements

Seashells, branches, rocks, gems, and twigs are all examples of natural elements that you can weave into your interior design. Even a simple zen garden includes aspects of nature and is particularly nice to have in a home office space.

Bring In Natural Light

Natural light improves productivity and focus, provides Vitamin D, regulates circadian rhythms, and increases overall well-being. A few ways to bring more natural light into your home include opening windows whenever possible, opting for sheer drapes, placing reflective materials across from windows, and installing skylights.

Add Flowing Water

The sound and look of flowing water can be comforting and calming. An aquarium, fountain, or even a white noise app can fulfill this purpose.

Use Natural Materials

 Rattan chairs

There are plenty of opportunities to use natural materials in your home, such as furnishings, countertops, and flooring. Examples of these natural materials include granite, cork, wicker, rattan, hemp, leather, wool, bamboo, wood, and stone. Their look and texture can help you feel more connected to nature, even when you’re indoors.

Display Natural Landscapes

Paintings and other artwork with natural landscapes can help you relax, and you can also select flooring, wall coverings, and fabrics with nature-inspired designs.

Stick with a Natural Palette

Choosing colors that are found in nature for your interior design results in a lovely, neutral palette throughout the home. Think cream-colored sand, rich brown earth, blue sky and water, and green grass as inspiration for your color scheme.
