Add Plants

As previously mentioned, one of the easiest ways to bring the outside into your home is to add plants. With so many health benefits, including lessening harmful gases and reducing muscle tension from stress, and decreasing fatigue and headaches, you can’t go wrong with adding a few plants into your house.

Plants are also great for adding texture around the home, as well as layers! Add them to your shelves, in corners, make them into centrepieces; there is so much you can do with plants in your home and so many different plants to choose from!

Let In Natural Light

Natural light is not only absolutely free, but it makes us feel better in ourselves too! Allow your outside space to pour into your home, but opening blinds, curtains, and windows and encouraging natural light to brighten up your interior. Incorporate large windows into your home, so your home doesn’t feel small, dark and cramped, and so you can enjoy the natural light at all points of the day; from sunrise to sunset!

When enticing natural light into your home, you can go one step further and bring in light from above too!

Use Eco-Friendly Materials

From the paint you use to decorate your walls, to the furniture and even the towels, choose eco-friendly materials! Not only will this allow you to do your part for the environment, but you will also feel much closer to nature!

Open Your Windows

During the warmer months, when the birds are singing, open your windows and admire nature from the comfort of your living room, kitchen, or bedroom. Plus, it will make you feel at peace and more alive, as you breathe in fresh air from the outdoors.

Use Natural Flooring

Instead of using man-made flooring around your house, why not consider utilising natural materials for your flooring? From bamboo to cork and even wood, these all feel natural, warm, and inviting underfoot.

Outside Colours

When you are decorating your home, try to use colours that are inspired by the outdoors. For example, green reminds us of grass, plants and the earth and blue is a refreshing colour. Natural tones, including tan, beige and white will make your house feel natural and clean. Use these colours not only to decorate your walls but also incorporate them into your furniture and other elements of your home.

As you can see, there are so many different ways to bring the outside into your home. Whether you are redecorating, moving somewhere new or just want to change a few things to make your home more natural and appealing, there are so many simple steps you can take to bring nature inside.
