Get the nature-inspired look

31 March 2018

Nature captures our attention through the senses and helps us to relax and escape stressors. Learn how to mix and match two different natural looks to bring some benefits of the great outdoors inside.

Try a grounding deco with natural hues and items that look handmade.
Play with textures 
 
This style is all about mixing textures to add interest to the room – think clay, solid wood and rattan. Don’t be afraid of ‘imperfections’ such as rough surfaces or leather with patina – those details just give extra character to your interior.
 

Decorate with natural elements
Opt for materials that are kind to you and the environment, such as a soft throw made from more sustainable cotton and pure linen. Add authenticity with a handcrafted rug and an imperfect clay vase for a one-of-a-kind style.

Refresh your living room with nature-inspired deco! Go for furniture in neutral hues and blue accents.
Create a calm and coordinated look
Use earth tones to form a warm base. Think sandy beaches, fields of grains and desert canyons. Add an accent hue in shades of blue for a calming effect reminiscent of the sea and sky.  
How to furnish the look
Try relaxing neutrals on bigger items. You will probably keep these pieces for a long time, so a pale base that can be updated easily gives lots of flexibility. Then add a few accent pieces (cushions, side tables, vases) in shades of blue.
