Redecorating your home for a new season can be hard on the ban and your creativity, but using natural elements has long been a wonderful way to save money, spruce pi your living space, and show off your style while remaining eco- friendly. Here are some great ideas that will help you get your home ready for Fall in no time by using natural elements you can pick up in your yard or on your vacation travels.
Go big in the home
Go all out with the nature theme and use seashells on a shelf. Cover each shelf with the shells you pick up on vacation and then add one or two of your own pieces, like a fancy bowl or a candle, in between the shells. You can do this with dried flowers, bamboo, pine cones, rocks, or anything else you collect on hikes or out camping.
Don’t underestimate the power of a single natural object. If you have a space that seems to be lacking something, make it more unique or personal with a natural item that has an interesting shape, pattern, or color. For example, a twisted branch on top of a stack of books, or a very large pine cone in a hurricane vase can really set off a mantel or side table’s décor.
Hang it up
For wall art, hang a large, spindly branch in the middle of a collage of frames, or use a fishing pole as a rod to hang frames off of at various heights. This is an easy and inexpensive way to change up your home’s feel without overdoing the decorations or changes.
As in… centerpieces! For your next centerpiece, place large leaves in vases of varying sizes. Make sure to choose leaves of different shades, textures, and shapes to add interest and put a bit of water in the vases to make the leaves stay fresh for longer. You could also place a glass bowl or dish in the center of your table and fill it with shells or rocks.
Make nature modern
A touch of nature can make modern spaces seem softer and more inviting without ruining the modern theme, if it is done correctly. In an all white or neutral room, a wooden stool can be just the splash of natural flair you need. A display of small houseplants on a bare table will be the perfect amount of nature and color. Nature in modern spaces should be done sparingly to not detract from the overall theme or style of your home.
If branches, pine cones, and shells aren’t really your style, but you want to bring a little nature to your home, opt for representations of nature on fabrics, artwork, and pillows. For example, floral printed pillows or framed art of trees can really make your home feel cozier without having to use nature in the home.
