This year the ancient objects of earth like rock, stone and soil are finding a sort of new-birth in Design elements. You can make your living room have the feel of
being outdoors by using the right materials. No matter what your style is, you
can always find the way to bring elements of nature such as color, texture,
I have realized by bringing the outdoors into the interior design of any space, you
will bring the feeling of freshness, life, and serenity and relaxation.
And that’s exactly how nature is. Imagine you are walking on a trail in the woods. You look down and you notice a beige rock with hundreds of different shades and lines settled into the rich, dark, brown dirt, but what really makes this whole scene absolutely breathtaking and beautiful are the dazzling flowers all around it. In a way, these flowers are nature’s accessories. They are yellow, green, red, purple, blue, white and etc…
So when you bring this idea into the interior design of your family room, I like to do the same thing. The tans and browns simply set the stage for your large piece
of furniture, wall, or on your floor then you can balance them with vibrant
colors. The vibrant colors make it more interesting and more real. They make
your eyes glow and your soul jump.
I don’t like to go too overboard with vibrant colors because then they lose
their pop, but you have to make room for them.
So the next time you are on a walk in the woods, notice the symphony of colors. Take a picture and use that as inspiration for what you could have as your own oasis.
You will realize that your desire for an oasis is not that different than society’s need for rest and peace. And just like how society’s need for peace and tranquility can be found outdoors, yours can be found by bringing the outdoors in. go with your imagination…
