Bringing the Outside In - Natural Designs that Nurture the Soul
Bringing elements of the outdoors indoors is a popular trend in interior design, and it’s not hard to see why. Adding natural elements to your home can make the space feel more calming, peaceful, and inviting. One way to do this is by incorporating plants and greenery. Houseplants not only add beauty to a space, but they also help purify the air and promote a healthier living environment.
Another way to bring the outdoors inside is through the use of natural materials such as wood, stone, and woven textures. You can add a rustic touch to your space with wooden furniture and accents, or create a serene atmosphere with a stone accent wall or fireplace. Woven textures such as jute or rattan can also add a natural feel to a space and can be incorporated into furniture, lighting, or décor items.
“Organic materials used in the home are grounding. Adding earthly elements unites us with nature and nurtures the soul.” says interior designer Kate FitzGerald-Wilks.
Finally, don’t forget about natural light. Maximizing natural light in a space can help bring the outdoors inside and create a bright and airy atmosphere. Consider using lightweight window treatments to allow more light in and make the most of your indoor-outdoor connection.
