Bring nature into your home: 4 tips
A hectic day at work, a traffic jam on the way home, a quick stop by the shop: isn’t it wonderful to come home to peace and calm after the daily hustle and bustle? With these tips, you can easily bring nature into your home. Bring nature into your home and create your own zenterior with our 4 tips.
Interiors inspired by Calm are permeated with a calm mellowness that derives from living in harmony with nature. Natural materials full of texture have a high wabi-sabi quality: inspired by far-off Japan, they illustrate the beauty of imperfection.
4 tips to bring natural peace to your home:
1 - PLANT A TREE
Bring nature into your home, something you can take quite literally. With a wall full of hanging plants, an indoor garden or a bright patio with a stately tree, the boundary between the outside and the inside fades away. The abundant presence of plants provides a sense of calm and promotes concentration.
2 - TEXTURES AND MATERIALS
Concrete is versatile, pure and robust. Concrete’s texture adds a perfectly imperfect element and creates a kind of vulnerability. The unprocessed structures and porous surfaces fit perfectly into the Japanese wabi-sabi philosophy, where a little bit of imperfection in our interior is fully embraced and accentuated.
3 - NATURAL PRINTS
Aside from plants and trees, there are countless other ways to bring greenery into your home. You can find nature in all kinds of materials, prints, textures and colours. From natural decorations such as animal hides, soft-haired pillows and wicker to a table in characterful teak or elements with a floral print.
4 - COLOUR PALETTES
Nature has a wide colour palette to draw from. Blue shades for water, green for botanical, grey and brown for earth and stone, yellow for sand and sun, and red for the volcanic and fire. These shades bring a natural ambience to the home. In additi-on, choose familiar, raw materials: leather, wicker, bamboo, natural stone, wood, wool and silk are all classics.
