How to Create a More Natural and Organic Looking Home
Have you made the decision that 2020 will be the year you tackle your home’s interior design? Are you tired of your décor not being a true reflection of who you are, where you are in your life, and your lifestyle in general? If so, there are plenty of design styles to choose from, but one that is incredibly popular and stylish at the moment is a more natural and organic looking space.
The desire to scale things back, take a more minimalistic approach, and have a sense of nature in the indoors is not only beautiful to look at but it can help to create a sense of calmness, relaxation, and peace in the home. If this sounds like the kind of atmosphere you are pining for, then these tips can help you with the transformation.
Natural Materials Will Feel More Organic
The first tip is to make use of natural materials whenever possible. This includes things like stone and wood. You can use these materials for the furniture, flooring, cupboards, and even as statement décor pieces.
Take, for example, the natural stone veneer available through Kafka Granite, which is perfect for things like fireplace walls and even an interior stone wall (as it can adhere to things like drywall and paneling). Using natural stone veneer will give the room a pop of interest, obviously, but will also make it feel more rugged, organic, rustic, and natural.
Go Ahead and Feed Your Green Thumb
Another tip, which is very simple and cost-effective, is to bring greenery into the home. Houseplants are a wonderful way to make a space feel more natural and create that whole indoor/outdoor living transition. Rather than sticking to just one variety of plant, however, be sure to mix things up and experiment with different sizes, shapes, and colors. Just be sure that whatever you pick is meant to be grown indoors.
Stick to a Natural and Soothing Color Palette
Paint is also a great way to change up the look and feel of your home. If it’s natural and organic you are aiming for, then you will want to stick to a soft color palette. Think shades of green, blue, grey, brown, taupe, and white. It’s also a good idea to stick to one color palette for the entire house in order to create flow.
Capitalize on the Natural Light
Of course, in order for a space to feel natural and organic, you also want to encourage the sunshine to come on in. This means getting rid of heavy drapes and blinds that block out the light. Instead, invest in sheers, soft cotton panel curtains, and bamboo style blinds. Whatever window coverings you choose should also fit in with the color palette you are using.
An Inviting Décor to Ring in 2020
Each of these tips will help to inspire you as you tackle your home décor in 2020. The end result will feel fresh, inviting, modern and, of course, very natural and organic – exactly what you set out to achieve.
