Evoke a sense of connection and relaxation by introducing natural elements into your home’s décor. A touch of greenery can breathe new life into a space and provide an oasis from the busy lives we live. It’s important to embrace positivity in all aspects of our life, especially when it comes to our home interiors, as our mindset can be heavily influenced by our environment.
The concept of bringing the outdoors in relates back to the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui which details how your surroundings can positively impact the energy flow through your home. Creating balance within your interior will help to connect you with nature and create a harmonious aesthetic.
Bringing the outdoors in doesn’t necessarily mean you need to place plants all over your home! Add a new element to your space by opting for nature-inspired paint colours and timber accents for texture. Immerse your interiors with naturally occurring shades such as a muted green or blue tones to help curate a calm, tranquil space. An important consideration when architects are planning a home is the natural light that is filtered into the home! This will be heavily dependent on how your home is situated; your home may get no morning light but all the lovely afternoon sun. It’s important to know the orientation when planning for plants as some varieties will need sunlight all day to thrive.
Find the perfect indoor plant to match your lifestyle, plants can be a sizable investment and they need a lot of love. If you are short on time there is no shame in opting for the artificial variety, just don’t forget to give them a dust every now and then. If you’re lucky enough to have tall ceilings, a mature fiddle leaf fig or olive tree will showcase the height in a magnificent way. Hanging plants are perfect for open shelving, the delicately intricate vines cascading down are a great way to embellish an otherwise bare corner.
