Thursday’s Theme: Natural Inspiration

Bringing the outdoors inside or on our porches to incorporate into our home décor can be achieved all year long with wreaths, flowers, wall art and many other accents. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to decorate with nature for this week’s Décor Article; we hope you can find inspiration and will share your favorite displays and natural style with us!

Flora and Fauna

Wreaths, garlands, centerpieces; real, faux, freshly picked; there are so many ways to incorporate your favorite plants into your home décor there just isn’t enough room to talk about all of them. Leaves, pinecones, blooms and berries give any surface timeless appeal, and we love switching out different pieces to complement the current season. For fall, we like warm colors; winter is all about holly berries and sparkles; spring brings pastels; summer is full of fresh greens and bright colors.

Animal Instinct

Birds, mammals, pets, even insects are essential nature items. Seek out the most charming sculptures, pictorial pillows, most eye-catching wall art and other décor to add life to your home. Be creative with your displays, and create some variety with different colors or types of animals found in the wild.

Be Satisfied with your Style

No matter what kind of natural elements you choose to work with, always go with your stylistic preferences, not style fads (unless you love the items that make up those fads!). Use bright colors and eccentric curtains or patterns if you want to go

outside of the box, or stick with seashells and coastal accents for a more muted and seafaring look. Also think about the materials you’re decorating with. For natural inspiration, wood will always be a complementing look, but cotton, rattan and woven accents, glass and rustic tile also make a woodsy and country impression. Decorate your dining room table in leafy placemats; place your bird sculptures under glass jars or in a display cabinet; add a natural-colored tile table to your family room; after you combine your favorite outdoorsy pieces, your room and home will come together in stylish harmony.
