4 Nature-Inspired Decor Changes to Fall in Love With

18:00

There are many different styles of decor a home can go through, but none of them touch the heart and hit you with nostalgia and comfort like nature does. Soft muted colours, wooden accents on furniture, and country-like furniture are all great ways to add a bit of nature into your home. However, that doesn’t mean you need to build your house from stick and stones and it certainly doesn’t mean you need to invite bugs and rodents into your home.

Living in the country is one of the best ways to get inspired by nature. Even if you can only do it for a weekend, consider a small break to a countryside cottage to soak in all the sights and sound so that you can fill your mind with nature-inspired decor changes. But to get you started, here are some fantastic ideas you can apply to your home right now.

Natural Flooring
Flooring can be a pain to replace if you don’t do it early. If you have too much furniture in the home then it can take a while to move everything out before you replace the flooring itself. It’s definitely not a job for a single person and it’s recommended you get in touch with a contractor to help you replace your flooring. However, there are dozens of different natural-looking floors to fall in love with. You usually have a choice between hardwoods and softwoods, but they both look amazing when you are aiming for a natural look in your home.

Let There Be Light!
If you stay in a country cottage for a weekend you’ll immediately notice that the home doesn’t require much lighting because it is almost completely illuminated by the sun. In addition to the low or nonexistent city skyline, the abundance of sun and large windows lets in a pleasing amount of light that reflects off bright surfaces and shiny objects to create the illusion of a large, open space that is lit up by the sun.

Comforting Green Plants
Green is the colour to go for when it comes to plant life. You can place small plant pots on shelves and desks to contrast with light colours. This creates a vibrant decor and the plants are highlighted when someone scans the room, becoming focal points of attention. This is why it’s a great idea to place plants on centerpieces, but it’s important you don’t overwhelm furniture or your home but putting too many plants that you can’t take care of.

Mood Lighting
Strips of LED lights are great to use when you want to diffuse light. Diffusing essentially means to “soften” lights so that they don’t beam at a surface or a direction. This means that with enough planning in your room, you can create lighting that blends light and dark areas of your room to create a seamless and comforting atmosphere. You can also automatically adjust these lights so that they dim when the evening arrives, creating the ultimate mood lighting combination.
