The outdoors has a unique and beautiful palette that can inspire and relax you. Whether you are a nature lover, or just enjoy its beauty from afar, you can bring that outdoor feeling into your home to brighten it up and give it a more earthy appeal. Looking for a few ways to give your home a more natural appeal? Check out some of the tips below to help bring the outside in.

Incorporate Your Favorite Flowers or Trees

Houseplants are a great way to bring some color indoor, celebrate the changing seasons and also improve the indoor air quality ion your home. Pick some of your favorite flowers, plants and small trees that can be grown indoors and add them as accents to tables, entryways and next to furniture. You can find indoor plants that require varying maintenance, so it is easy to choose one to suit your lifestyle.

Consider Installing Natural Floors

Cork, bamboo and hardwood floors are great materials to help keep your floors warm while providing the perfect natural touch to any room. Not only do these types of floors look stunning with every type of color palette, but they bring a more organic feel to your home than using synthetic flooring. 

Let the Natural Light Shine In

Nothing gives you the feel of nature more than sunlight filling your home. Allow windows to remain uncovered, or use only thin sheers to filter out the light. If you are really looking to create an outdoor oasis indoors, consider adding skylights so that the sunlight can shine down on you the same it would if you were outside.

Use Outdoor Elements as Accent Pieces

Those precious shells, driftwood and other unique items you find outside can easily be cleaned up and transformed into the perfect accent piece for a room. You can use them as part of your table or mantel knickknacks, or even use them as a base for end tables and lamps. Beautiful cuts of wood can also be easily transformed into furniture pieces that will bring a natural feel to any room.

Choose Natural Fibers & Materials for Furniture

Next time you pick out a piece of furniture or accent pillow for your space, check out items with more natural textures and materials. Jute, hemp, wicker and rattan can be the perfect choice for chairs, throws, accents pillows, decorative baskets and even your lighting fixtures.

Whether you are looking to have a natural vibe throughout your home, or just simple hints of nature throughout, by following the tips above, you can bring the outdoors into any room in your home.
