Spending time in nature has been proven to benefit our mental well-being, providing stress relief, reduced anxiety, and improving mood. By embracing and integrating natural elements into your indoor space, you can create a peaceful and restorative sanctuary to come home to.
Here are some of our favourite interior design tips to bring nature indoors:
The easiest way to include nature in your home décor is with potted plants and fresh flowers. Living greenery can infuse a breath of fresh air into your home (literally), all while absorbing airborne pollutants. If you’re looking for plants that are easy to care for, we recommend:
- Peace Lily
- Snake Plant
- Spider Plant
To find the perfect plant for your indoor space, check out West Coast Jungle in Mount Pleasant, a boutique plant store specializing in trending and rare house plants.
NATURAL COLOUR PALETTES
Draw inspiration from nature’s colour palette. Burnt oranges and warm browns inspire warmth and coziness, while sage greens, cool grays and mocha beiges bring a fresh, calmness.
While you may have heard of Exposure, the popular clothing store with locations in Vancouver, you probably didn’t know about Exposure Home – their home furnishings location on Commercial Drive. Here, you’ll find unique décor accessories and furniture items that use natural colours to inspire an organic, modern style for your home.
Prints and fabrics that represent the natural world are a wonderful way to achieve integration between indoors and out. If you’re feeling bold, try upholstering your curtains or accent chair with your favourite botanical fabric. If you’d prefer a more subtle look, play around with floral throw pillows or frame prints of nature or patterns of the natural world.
