The majority of us enjoy being in nature. Nature’s colors, smells, and shapes are hard to beat in terms of design, and it has a calming influence on the mind and body. Mother Nature has us completely beaten.
So it’s only natural that we’d want to bring the beauty of nature into our homes. The good news is that, even if you’re on a low budget, it’s actually quite simple to do so.
Plant decor ideas for living room
More is better
Adding lots of plants and flowers to the living room is the simplest and most visible approach to incorporate more nature into your house.
The more the merrier, and you can put them anywhere in the living room – to create your desired level of “outdoors” flair inside. Whether it’s lovely potted orchids, delicate bonsai trees, or oh-so-easy-to-look-after succulents.
Even if you’re indoors, as long as you have windows, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the natural world around you.
So, take good care of your windows by cleaning them on a regular basis, maintaining the frames, and replacing them if they’re no longer fit for purpose.
Your windows are your portal to the outside world, so make the most of them in your quest to bring more of the outside inside.
Use natural materials
Filling your home with plants and flowers and flooding it with natural light makes no sense if you then fill it with plastic, polyester, and other synthetic materials.
If you’re striving for an outdoors-insides aesthetic, more natural materials like bamboo furniture, cotton cushions, and stone worktops are a better choice.
Natural materials are also generally better for the environment, and they appear to be significantly more expensive.
The roughness of the bark of a tree, the smoothness of the stones, the way the grass brushes up against your bare feet in the garden are all part of the outdoor experience.
So, take a page from Mother Nature’s book and fill your home with as many textures as possible. This can be accomplished by laying cork, bamboo, or stone flooring, layering with rugs, throws, and cushions, and varying the natural textiles you choose.
Install patio doors
Patio doors that let in a lot more natural light and allow you to open up your home and blend it smoothly with the yard are a terrific way to bring the outside in and vice versa.
When the weather permits, simply pull back the doors, and your home becomes a part of the beautiful nature that you adore.
Use tropical patterns
Whether you live in a tropical climate or not, you can create your own personal paradise right in your own house. Tropical printed wallpapers and fabrics can be used to decorate your home.
Cushions with tropical blooms printed on them, wallpaper with palm trees or flamingos. All of these things will contribute to the desired environment.
Make a feature wall
So, you’ll have to be brave and put in some effort to do this. Choose one feature wall in your home and fill it with plants and flowers if you’re up for the challenge.
You can put up some shelves and fill them with a few potted plants. Or you can also go bold and cover every inch of the wall with a vertical garden that will fully take over the space and transform it into an indoor oasis. It will be so lush and green that its beauty will take your breath away.
Accessorize with natural elements
Most of us enjoy having a few items in our homes to brighten it up and show off our individual flair.
If you’re one of them, decorate with pebbles to create a unique Zen scene, colored sand displayed in natural glass bottles, sea glass, rattan, pine cones, hanging plants, and anything else you can think of that uses more natural elements than not instead of buying knock-knacks made of glass and ceramics.
