5 Ways To Give Your Home A Close-To-Nature Look
Living close to the nature has always been a retreat where humans feels fresh, healthy and at peace. So, how about incorporating a close-to-the-nature look to your home, too?
PropGuide lists five ways in which you could do this.
Brick by brick
Nature's beauty lies in its raw look, and you could add this to your home by giving your walls a look that you would find in a far-off house in the middle of the woods. Have a brick wall in your home and leave it without plaster. This wall could be painted with an earthy colour, including white, light blue or shades of rust and brown.
Knock on wood
A close-to-the-nature look of your home would never be complete without adding the wood. Bring home this element by placing furniture with a rustic look, unpolished lamps made of raw wood, and even flooring made of natural wood. If you want to go a step further, how about giving one of the rooms a wood makeover, with a ceiling-to-floor wooden walls and wooden flooring?
One of the new-found love among people is the organic products. These products are found across categories. So, to deck up your home you could incorporate furnishing made of organic fabrics, including cotton, wool or silk. There are brands in the market that specialise in organic forms of these fabrics. Also, to add to the element, bring in organic bath and beauty products.
Right from the garden
How can we forget the greens when we talk of the nature? Deck up your home with a variety of flowers that go well with the colour scheme you are following in a particular room. Here's a guide to the flowers you could have in your home.
Light it up
The most important element to complete the earthy look of your home is to let the natural light seep in. Your home should be designed in such a way for the most part of a day, the sun should be able to light it. Construct big windows or sliding glass doors which you could keep open during the day to let the light and air come in. This would also help you save on your energy bills.
