Do you ever feel like your home could do with a bit of a freshen up? You might be starting to get a bit bored with your current decor and think that it’s time to brighten the place up a bit. Not too sure what you could do to give your decor a new breath of life? You simply need to bring the outdoors in!

 

There’s nowhere quite as fresh and invigorating as the outdoors, and bringing aspects of features of the outside world into your home will be a great way to improve the house’s overall interior design.

 

Here are some great tips that can guide your outdoor-inspired decor.

 

Add Plenty Of House Plants

 

One of the quickest and easiest ways to make your home’s decor feel like it has been inspired by the outdoor is to add some house plants. You don’t need to add too many, or else your home might start to feel like a jungle! Instead, just a couple in each of your rooms should do. Why not add the types of plants that are renowned for detoxifying the air around them? These include peace lilies and aloe vera.

 

Use Natural Materials

 

If you want to add new countertops, flooring, or large furniture items, you should try and find new items that have been made with natural materials. For instance, wooden floors, granite countertops and bamboo furniture will help increase the overall natural feel to your rooms. Not only that, though, but they are also more likely to be eco-friendly compared to things made from manmade materials.

 

Go With A Natural Color Scheme

 

When it comes to painting and decorating your rooms, you should also try and create a natural color scheme. Use colors that you would find when you are wandering around outside. For instance, earth browns, refreshing blues, and deep greens will all work really well. You might even want to go one step further and paint a beautiful forest scene on a feature wall.

 

Use Fruits And Vegetables As Decor Features

 

It’s also a nice idea to add some fruit and vegetables to the decor. For instance, adding a large fruit bowl to the center of a dining-room table or coffee table can be a nice ornate feature. Dried fruit and vegetables will also work well dotted along bookshelves and in small nooks and crannies. Some vegetables can also give your home a nice seasonal touch, such as carved pumpkins in the fall. If you don’t want to use actual fruit and vegetables, you could always just use wallpaper that features them in the pattern.

 

Make It Eco-Friendly

 

Adding some eco-friendly features to your home will also be a great way to bring in the great outdoors. Plus, it will be doing the environment a big favor as your interior design choices won’t have a negative effect on it!

 

As you can see then, there are plenty of ways you can bring the great outdoors into your home. And you’ll feel a lot more relaxed and rejuvenated as a result!

A Cultured Person’s Interior Must Reflect Themselves

Who doesn’t love the chance to put one’s adventurous mind into top gear when it comes to designing your own interior? It’s a chance to do exactly what you want, how and when. No one else should be the judge of what you allow your home to become. The interior should and even if you don’t make it out to be, it will be a reflection of your personality. Whether you have over brand new guests for a dinner party, your parents and or your friends, the rooms they enter and sit in will have a subconscious effect. Usually, you’d be justified in being concerned about your stylistic tastes, as with all fashion decor is either in or out at any one time. But surely there should always be something more than just looks and great artistic expressions. If you have traveled the world, lived in various cultures and or love to explore ideas, why isn’t your home expressing this about you? It’s not like you have to throw it in people’s faces, but they should get the feeling that you take pride in being a cultured individual.

A cocoon of knowledge

 

It’s a very sad time for those who love to read the ‘old fashioned’ way. Yet it’s a great time for technology as knowledge that expands the mind has become smaller and smaller. The great houses of aristocracies, political houses and royal palaces are and always will be, adorned with real books. It’s something more tangible, grasping a book made of paper and having the smell of the pages consume the room is quite a traditional mark. In this regard standing stoically in your lounge or office room, you can have your very own traditional furniture in the form of a bookcase. The Corndell Nimbus design is a classic three-shelf piece with a bold dark finish. You have two drawers for internal storage should you need it.

Real trumps digital

 

As times change what happened to the books is also happening to art. Paintings are very scarcely a part of someone’s home. With televisions and computer screens that are sublime in quality, the younger generation now views art through those lenses. However, for the home it should always be different. It’s not just for viewing pleasure; it’s a statement. It could be a hark back to an adventure, a symbol of your past or family. Quite frankly you don’t need a reason to hang beautiful paintings on your walls. Real art that you can physically touch and look at with no barrier is always going to touch your soul deeper. Think about a time you were immersed in a foreign culture, or how about a powerful speech on social or political concerns you heard. Hanging up a piece of artwork that means something and also brings a splash of style to your home will immediately become a talking point for you and your guests.

 

If you want to be overly stylish and dabble mainly in the design and categories of decor, that’s absolutely fine. But your interior choices can and should be supplemented by really meaningful pieces that reflect your cultural experiences. Not to mention it’s a great way to start a conversation with new friends.
