Behind The Nature Home Interior Design Trend


Calling on Nature to Soothe and Nurture

The Nature Home interior design trend is all about bringing life-affirming, health-promoting nature indoors. Research shows that surrounding one’s self with nature can have healing properties, such as the ability to reduce stress and elevate your mood. It’s no surprise many people are intuitively drawn to nature and look for creative ways to bring it into their homes.

Today’s world is full of turmoil and uncertainty. You may have learned to escape the stress of everyday life by retreating into your home. Whether you live in a big house in the suburbs or a small apartment in a bustling city, you may be exploring ways to transform your space into a soothing sanctuary where you can decompress and find peace like nowhere else.

Are you looking to create a sacred and nature-inspired indoor space for you and your family? You can do this by using natural materials, shapes and colors.

Natural Items

You probably won’t be able to truly incorporate nature into your home if you’re relying solely on artificial items. Think of ways to introduce natural or natural-looking items and accessories into your space. This could mean furnishing your space with wood or even an authentic looking embossed-in-register (EIR) vinyl plank floor, adding a high-quality cotton rug to accent your floor or adorning your walls with textures found in nature, like pebbles, branches or antlers. If you keep your belongings in storage bins, consider replacing them with large wicker baskets or attach wood shelves to your walls.

Create a Living Wall

A Nature Home space isn’t complete without the presence of lush green plants. You can add a creative twist to having house plants by curating a floor-to-ceiling living wall—multiple rows of shelves filled with a variety of potted plants. Creating your own one-of-a-kind living wall turns your space into a piece of art and brings that calming effect of nature into your indoor space.

Natural Scents

A nature home isn’t just about textures and visuals. By filling your space with natural scents, you can bring the smell of nature into each room of your home. There are many ways to do this. You can find candles, incense, essential oils and wax melters in a variety of natural scents, including lavender, pine, cedarwood and eucalyptus.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a place that’s surrounded by nature, you can simply keep your windows open (weather permitting) to enjoy the constant flow of fresh air in throughout your house.

Nature Art Prints

If you’re an avid outdoors enthusiast, you may have visited some truly breathtaking natural wonders. As you continue to design your Nature Home, why not print some of your best outdoor photos and decorate your walls with them? If the view from your window is anything but charming, waking up to your favorite views of remote landscapes in the form of nature art prints can help you start your day on a positive note.

Utilize Outdoor Space

Consider creating an outdoor living space in your backyard or on your patio where you can easily set up a laptop or read a book. Spending hours behind a computer screen can lead to headaches and burnout. Working in a natural environment can stimulate your mind and boost your energy. Instead of feeling drained, you’ll clock out feeling energized and ready to carry on with your day.
