Quick Tip: Nature-Inspired Decor and Home Accents

Nature-inspired decor doesn’t have to come just from the outdoors. Especially in cities or the suburbs where yards and gardens are small or non-existent, or if a member of your household has plant-related allergies, faux flowers, lighting and pillows are great substitutes for real flowers and greenery.

Thursday’s Theme: Paper and Prints

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

We’re making this week’s Thursday’s Theme short and simple, but we hope you find it at least a little bit sweet, too. The next two weeks will be heart and Valentine’s Day themed, so feel free to stay away from the red and pink color palettes with these ideas, or devote this week to love and romance as well. Today’s decor tips are perfect for renters or anyone who frequently changes the themes or styles of the rooms in their home, but these tips also work great as permanent fixtures to create a welcoming and personable atmosphere.

Flower Wall Decals (created with Photoshop)Wall Decals
While you can purchase pre-made wall decals, designing your own creates a little more of a personal touch to a room, and it’s a lot of fun! You can create an image (or images) using Photoshop or Microsoft Word, print and cut it out and simply use adhesive, like tape, to secure it to a wall. Or, use a scrap-booking stencil or freehand an image if you don’t have those programs or a printer. If you are looking for a more permanent piece of wall decor, find some wallpaper you like and trace or draw out an image on that, and use wallpaper paste to secure it. 

Picture Frames and CollagesPaper Photo Decor (in a glass frame)
If you prefer the look of a contained image on your wall, simply put an image in a picture frame. Mix and match multiple frames, or prints, to create a collage on a bare wall, or display a single image and frame on a coffee table. The frame should be part of the art; this decorating strategy gives you the opportunity to find (and possibly splurge on) some really unique frames, since your image may be inexpensive and simple.

Have you tried these decor tricks yourself? Let us know how you have organized a collage on a wall or have used paper and patterns to liven up a room.

Floral Ambiance

When it comes to unique ways to incorporate a flower decorating theme in your home, we suggest accenting with our lovely Forsythia Lights, pictured below. An unexpected lighting source presents another seasonally appropriate flower, the forsythia.

Forsythias are known for their early spring arrival, and their bright yellow hue is ideal for adding a cheerfulness back into your home after the long winter months. 60 LED lights are shaped as the flowers themselves, and its bendable branches allow you to structure them as you wish in your favorite vase or container. You could display this decorative accent light as a centerpiece on a table or mantle space as well; its 98″L thin cord makes it easy to tuck out of sight. Now during our Annual Spring Sale, purchase our Forsythia Lights for the low price of $39.95.

If you like our Forsythia Lights, perhaps you will also enjoy our Plum Tree Lights for a softer glow in white.
