With more and more people working from and spending longer periods at home, there’s an increased desire to bring the outside in. There’s an ever-growing focus on Sustainability and the importance of living with a more simplistic approach. With concepts like Circular Design and Living Green making room in our lives and an increasing time spent in our houses there is no surprise we want to make our homes reflect the outdoors.
Decorate With Plants
It should be no surprise that potted plants, whether fragrant and real or stunningly, deceptively fake have been making their way into homes in droves. A spot of green in the house has always been a terrific way to give life to a room, helping to create relaxing, comfortable spaces where a connection with nature is present and accounted for.
Plants are both functional and decorative, and bringing them into the home as part of your interior design can have many benefits. Plants are known to have air-purifying qualities, absorbing CO2 and releasing oxygen but also filtering out harmful and toxic chemicals. They can also reduce stress we feel mentally, bright coloured flowers and a stunning array of leaves can instantly elevate the mood even if the sky is not too bright outside. The options are near endless as well, from small succulents to intriguing terrariums to large ferns, palms and much, much more.
Apply Earthy Textures, Utilize Wood and Other Natural Materials
Pair warm, earthy tones with textured throws and layers of linen for a room that’s so cosy, everyone will want to spend time in it. We are naturally gravitating towards a concern with wellness and human well-being that go hand in hand with the use of natural materials. Alongside a trend for Sustainability and Circular Design, handmade products and natural materials such as wood, rattan or stone are making a comeback.
Take Advantage of Light
Lighting is an important aspect of interior design as it enhances the aesthetic appeal and creates the mood and ambiance of a living space. Lighting fixtures that illuminate a room creates a safe and comfortable environment besides adding style to the interior décor. Ever thought of a light well not only as a light source but also as a connection to the outside? Here a tiny light-well garden connects with the bathroom space, creating a spa-like, luxe bathroom vibe.
