3 Ways to Bring Nature into Your Home

3 Ways to Bring Nature into Your Home

There is a shift in interior design: Surrounded by big cities, bustling cars, and industrial buildings, we yearn for nature. And the current design trends reflect this.

Plants are everyone’s go-to; but if you are anything like us, you know that keeping a plant happy and alive all year long is… well… difficult.

Luckily, design trends have caught up to the fact that not all of us have green fingers, so here are some design tips to nature into your home without the guilt and shame you feel when you lose yet another houseplant.

1.    Wallpaper

Wallpaper is already making a comeback in 2019, so you will definitely be on trend!

Yes, we said no plant, but no one will be able to tell if it’s an artificial plant.

Statement ceilings and flooring are making a comeback, too.




2.    Natural-looking Wood

Whether it’s dark mahogany, a light bamboo, or anything in between, natural-looking wood is trending. Use it for floors, furniture, or even as exposed beams in your house; in fact, you can even use alternatives that look like real wood.




3.    Paint it Green

2017 brought us Greenery as the Pantone colour of the year, Night Watch was named PPC Paints’ colour of the year for 2019, and Pinterest still can’t get enough of Sage Green… Whatever your taste or style, there is a shade of green for you.

“The restorative power of nature is important in society now more than ever,” explains Dee Schlotter, PPG senior colour marketing manager. “Night Watch is about bringing the healing power from the outdoors into your home through colour.

The dark green hue pulls our memories of natural environments to the surface to recreate the calming, invigorating euphoria we feel when in nature.”

“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalise, Greenery symbolises the reconnection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose.”
