Let nature inspire your home

Everybody loves the summer time – blue skies, green grass and flowers filling your garden beds. But why should the fun stop when the sun goes down? Here are some simple ways in which you can let nature inspire your home, and bring the outside in.

Add floral wallpaper

One of the most noticeable ways to add a touch of nature to your interior is to add floral wallpaper. You can choose from either a big or small print, in a variety of colours. Why not opt for a bold, colourful print on one feature wall? Or how about using more neutral colours with a metallic print to add a contemporary twist on a traditional style, perfect if you are wanting to wallpaper a whole room. If floral isn’t your thing, how about a tree print wallpaper? This is another great way to add interest and style into your room.

Choose wooden accessories

A simple way to add in an aspect of nature is to include wooden accessories. This could be small objects such as a clock or ornaments, or you could go all out and embrace traditional wooden furniture. Another way to add wood into your home is to change the flooring to a modern laminate. This is a feature that will help to bring the whole look together. Carpetright stock a wide variety of laminate flooring options in different shades of wood, along with wood-effect vinyl, perfect for adding aspects of the theme to kitchens or bathrooms.

Use floral accessories

If you don’t want to commit to a wallpaper, how about adding in hints of flora and fauna with your choice of accessories? This could range from small influences such as floral cushions in a living room, or printed crockery in the kitchen. Another way to work this style into your home is to add it in via furniture. Our Florence Metal BedĀ frame is a contemporary twist on the floral style, with the modern satin nickel finish making it the perfect focus point for the room.

Gain an ocean feel

Nature doesn’t just have to mean forests and woodlands – it can also include the coast. Shell mirrors and mother of pearl accessories can be simple touches that help to gain the ocean feel. If you’re looking to add a twist on the nautical trend, why not opt for pebble effect mosaic tile vinyl flooring to your bathroom? This is a great modern twist on a classic look, and can help to make you feel calm like you are by the sea.


Add fresh flowers or plants

The most simple and budget-friendly way to bring a nature inspired feel to your home its to add fresh flowers or house plants to your rooms. You can have free reign over what flowers you pick, with wild flowers and herbs bringing a country-feel, whilst more colourful bouquets can become a feature in any room. Its good to play around with different types of vases, how about arranging your flowers in a jug or mason jar for an alternative look.

Take a twist on the norm

You can also think outside the box when it comes to the nature theme, and include accessories with an animal theme such as a coat hook with birds on, or cushions with animal prints. These few touches can help to pull the look together, and are great if you’re a little scared to go the whole way with a printed wallpaper or patterned flooring.
