Aren't we all naturally drawn to nature? I know I am. The touch of the earth beneath my feet, the sound of waves, and the sensation of rain are all things that leave me feeling pretty chilled. So, if it is possible to recreate this feeling of the outdoors in my home I am game! There are my tips to achieving the ultimate outdoorsy feeling.
Bring Nature Inside
This is what the concept of bringing the outside in is all about – making nature a part of your home. Of course, this doesn’t simply mean that you need to add a few plants to your home. Instead, you bring the essence of nature and use it to make your home a calmer and more relaxed place.
Natural fibres and textiles like wicker, rattan, and hemp all make the perfect materials for your furniture, baskets, rugs, and other home décor. They tend to be organic, with fresh scents that will leave you dreaming of the outdoors plus their environmental impact is often minimal.
It's All About the Colour
Your colour scheme is all impotant when it comes to making your home a natural wonder. Chose colours for the atmosphere you want to create:
- Greens are a reminder of the earth, plants, forests, and grass.
- Blues create a refreshing atmosphere that is reminiscent of the sky and sea.
- Yellows bring a sense of freshness to the area, like sunflowers and summer’s days.
- Neutral tones bring a sense of calm and balance to a room, with a natural and clean feel.
Use Nature to Your Advantage
Use the elements that nature has to offer to your advantage. Using natural flooring such as wood, cork, and bamboo, all help to enhance the natural feeling of your home. Using real wood for furniture also helps with this natural and authentic feel.
Similarly, the items that you place for decoration can have an impact on the overall ambience. Rocks, driftwood, a single giant palm can all bring a little added something to a room.
Natural Light is Key
One of the most important things you can do is let natural light pour in. It brings out the colour of your walls, and creates a fresh feeling overall. Get rid of your heavy curtains and replace them with blinds so that you can adjust the amount of light you allow to filter into your home. Open the blinds and watch the sunlight pour into your living space.
