Cozy and Stylish Living Spaces: Luxury Vinyl Tile for a Future Roots Vibe


While Nature Home design is about instilling the open-ended feeling of natural surroundings into your home, the goal of Future Roots design is to cocoon yourself within nature. Although this burgeoning trend is still on the new side, the Future Roots style has started to take root in the interior design world.

Based on energetic Art Nouveau design principles, the Future Roots style melds natural structures with clean lines, geometric shapes and an asymmetrical layout to create a modern and almost cave-like aesthetic. The trend helps homeowners surround themselves with a cozy and stylish home environment full of warm colors, raw materials, and plenty of greenery. You can read more about the Future Roots trend in our past blogs on the topic.

7 Ways You Can Decorate Your Space with the Future Roots Aesthetic

Curved Lines

The first step to incorporating the Future Roots aesthetic into your home is to integrate unconventional shapes into your decor. Furniture should be fluid and organic – composed of curved lines, round arches, or detailed designs – to resemble the spontaneity of nature more closely. Metroflor’s luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring offers hardwood options with fluid wood grains instead of straight lines that beautifully reflect what you would see in nature.

Natural Materials

Decorating your home with natural materials is also a must for the Future Roots style. Choose furniture pieces crafted from wood, rattan, or wicker to add warmth and authenticity to your space. You can also incorporate stone accents into your home for a sense of elegance. Natural fiber rugs, such as jute or sisal, can also help bring an organic texture to any room.

Warm and Earthy Color Palette

A warm, earthy color palette for your walls and decor will help you create a cozy and inviting atmosphere you’ll want to wrap yourself in. Shades of brown, beige, taupe and cream all evoke a sense of nature and provide a neutral backdrop for other design elements. Pops of color with muted tones of green, rust or mustard can also bring depth and visual interest to your space.

Layered Textures and Patterns

Layer textures and patterns in your decor to create the tactile and visually engaging environment that’s part of the Future Roots aesthetic. Blend textured throw pillows, knitted blankets and woven wall hangings together to add depth and warmth to your living areas. You can also introduce intricate design elements through rugs, curtains, or upholstery to invoke an organic flair within any room.

Sustainable Lighting Choices

Seek out sustainable lighting choices that align with the Future Roots aesthetic. Try to incorporate as much natural light as possible in any room by maximizing window openings (such as with a skylight) and using sheer curtains to allow more sunlight to filter through.

Indoor Plants and Biophilic Design

Integrating indoor plants into your home decor is an essential way to bring nature, and its sense of vitality, indoors. We recommend decorating with plants that thrive indoors and require minimal maintenance, such as pothos, snake plants or succulents. You can also employ biophilic design principles by placing plants strategically throughout your space, including hanging planters or vertical gardens, to enhance the connection between nature and your living environment.

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Choices

One of the core principles of the Future Roots aesthetic is connecting with nature. As such, sustainable design plays a major role when choosing decor. You can complement natural light with decorative lamps crafted from sustainable materials like bamboo or recycled glass.

Metroflor’s luxury vinyl plank floors (LVP) are a sustainable flooring solution made from longer-lasting materials, ensuring that no trees were cut down to achieve the look of a beautiful hardwood floor. By choosing LVT for your home, you can enjoy the charm of a Future Roots living space while making an environmentally conscious choice.
