Winter can be dull, cold, and lacking color, but bringing touches of nature into our homes that are upbeat and bright, can be one way to beat the winter blues. We love to feel welcome, peaceful, and cozy in our home, and bringing in elements of nature can do just that!
Try starting with color. Pantone’s Color of the Year “Greenery,” is one color that can brighten any dreary winter mood. Shades of green in your home can range from olive to emerald to bright green, so your options are limitless and sure to fit your taste. Adding green to your room is a simple and easy way to bring nature into your space; all while creating a space that is buzzing with energy.
We love updating accent pieces in the home when seasons change, as it allows your space to change with the seasons and trends. Replace those orange and purple couch pillows of fall with pillows that have a touch of green in them. Small accent pieces are a safe way to add a color to your room without overwhelming your space.
Did you know that white walls can make your home feel more in-tuned with nature? You are giving your room a blank canvas for design, and not only that, white is bright, energetic, and fresh, which is how we personally want to feel during the winter! For a splash of color, include a potted plant on your dining room table or side tables for actual greenery.
And lastly, one of our favorite, but most extensive ways to bring nature into your home, is with the design elements of brick, stone, and/or wood. Brick and wood panel walls add a raw, rustic feel to your space, while wooden beams truly make you feel as if the outdoors is inside your home.
