3 Ways to bring nature home

by Erica Pittman 06/19/2022

When you bring nature into your home, you can experience the benefits of being outdoors while also enhancing your indoor space. There are many ways to incorporate natural elements inside your home beyond wallpaper with a natural theme or paint with a soft earth tone.

If you’re interested in other ways to bring nature inside, here are some inspirational ideas to get you started:

Decorate with houseplants

What better way to add a bit of the natural world to your interior decor than with living houseplants? There are a wide variety of plants for all experience levels and indoor environments, with some requiring practically zero maintenance while offering major ongoing benefits.

Purify the air of toxins with popular houseplants like pothos, snake plants and spider plants. Whether you choose a single houseplant or create an entire indoor jungle, you’ll feel the benefits of having this natural decor indoors.

Use natural furnishings

When choosing furniture and accessories, opt for natural fibers and natural texture like rattan, bamboo or organic cotton. Add a woven jute rug and furniture made of reclaimed natural wood to help bring you closer to nature while keeping your home green.

Let in the light

Regardless of the view out your window, the best way to bring nature into your home is with natural light. Consider swapping out dark, heavy curtains and blinds for sheer fabrics and light colors. If you brighten your room with natural light, add mirrors to reflect the light from outdoors without raising your utility bills.

By following these starting guidelines, you’ll be able to incorporate authentic, natural home decor into your home, while improving your comfort and quality of life. After all, bringing nature indoors can do wonders by inspiring a rich environment with the aesthetically pleasing color palette and textures of the great outdoors.
