Recently, I had the pleasure of doing one of my all time favorite things: scrolling endlessly for inspiration. Not just anything, but we were doing articles about home decor inspired by nature. Of course, there were themes that jumped out right away: plants, woven elements, and natural wood. But, I’m always surprised at how other things come out. The colors this year have added a charming, organic feel. And, the creativity is unlimited. So, here it is, a round up of my favorite pics from this series.
Woods & Whites
There’s just something soft and peaceful about natural wood with the color white.
It’s no secret–I love woven elements. Baskets, blankets, rugs…woven elements add so much texture to the home. These insta-friends are slaying design by adding in these ‘inspired by nature’ pieces.
Artwork Inspired by Nature
This is where creativity comes alive! Art is a great way to surround yourself with the beauty of nature, and these photos are proof of that.
The Colors of the Season
If we want to talk about elements inspired by nature, there’s no avoiding the organic colors that have come into play. While I love the peaceful vibe of soft neutrals, the new neutrals on the block offer vibrant charm, without going over the top. Camel, olive, mustard–even blues, these colors have entered the scene, and we are loving them, aren’t we?
Always a Win: The Color Black
And, then…there’s black. No color has quite an effect on space quite like black. Bringing it into the design of your home, the only thing you have to be careful of is the amount. Outlines, accents and feature walls–these inspirational photos are where it’s at.
All the Plants!
You know I couldn’t resist adding a section about plants, right? They are an essential part of adding an ‘inspired by nature’ theme to your home. There has been research that shows that having plants in your home can reduce anxiety, purify the air and help with depression. Whether you choose real or faux plants, one thing is clear: You’re better off with them than without them!
