Bringing nature’s best elements inside is a sure way to create a relaxing atmosphere for yourself and your family. If there is one thing we have collectively learned over the past year, it’s that our homes are an important space that could heavily impact our wellbeing. At Wholesome Home Living, our mission revolves around exactly that - home decor that creates an intentional, beautiful, and inspiring space.
You don’t have to redesign your entire home to achieve a nature-inspired space. Adding certain small elements can make a world of a difference in changing the vibe of a room.
Here are our top interior design decor ideas to a more serene space:
This eco-friendly artform can bring a pop of color and texture to any room. Decorating your walls with organic artwork is a direct way to quite literally bring the outdoors in. That is, without the mess of dirt and bugs! Like all things in nature, no two pieces of foliage are the same. The possibilities are endless with the option to choose flowers and leaves of different shapes, sizes, and colors.
Hand-pressed flowers and foliage are our top pick for bringing a slice of nature right into the home. Choose from an array of collections depending on the season to bring a locally foraged work of art into your space.
The scents of nature can be inspiring, and transform the environment inside the home.
The beauty of this idea is that it can be changed depending on the mood you are trying to set at different times and seasons throughout the year.
Candles come in a plethora of nature inspired scents - choose options like lavender, bergamot & black tea, lemongrass, or cedar. In the summer, beach-inspired scents can transform the mood and create a relaxing experience right inside the house.
Take this idea another step further by creating a scentscape, making use of multiple scents throughout the home. This will take your family and guests on a journey of fragrant, sweet smelling spaces as they navigate the different rooms throughout the home
Warm & Inviting Finishes
The selection of materials when decorating a space can have a drastic impact on the look and feel of the room. For a naturalistic vibe, opt for materials like rattan, rope elements, and textured fabrics to nail the look.
A rattan ottoman or basket in the room, rustic stone vases with dried flowers, and couch throw pillows with string or rope detailing add a warm touch to any living space. These elements can neutralize spaces that contain rectilinear forms, and soften the overall look.
If the space already has pops of color that need to be balanced, look for natural toned elements in warm beige, brown, or deep green hues to counteract the existing pieces.
At Wholesome Home Living, we strive to provide home decor that is ever-changing. Our constantly rotating stock provides unique, handmade elements that are one of a kind. Stop by our Charlotte or Boone shops to see the fantastic pieces we have today.
