Step into Botanical Delight
Ever wanted to live in a green sanctuary? Find out how you can embrace a nature-inspired decor theme for your home!
Start ‘au naturel’
First think of the colours of major surfaces – such as the walls and ceiling. Go light so that your rooms feel airy, with room for nature to grow. Apart from safe, calming choices such as cream, you can also experiment with light shades of brown, or even grey.
When it comes to nature themes, green might come straight to mind. It is a tricky colour to work with – too much and your rooms might morph into a visual jungle, while having weaker shades of green, like chartreuse and lime, might resemble… algae growth. Try to proportion the amount of green in any room to a third on the overall
With neutral base colours, you can pick items with complementary green shades to do their work as accents. That makes shopping for decor items much easier, too!
Simple plants, even artificial ferns, are easy and manageable ways to give your table some greens.
Add a few little animal objects – porcelain doves and pigeons can give a soft touch of fauna in your forest home.
Fern prints are hot on trend, and you can have them in your art frames or cushion covers.
