3 Ways to Add Natural Elements to Your Interior Design
Color has a profound impact on our psychology, so much so that having certain colors in specific contexts can alter our moods in positive ways. Earthy tones, such as browns, tans and whites bring warmth and depth into a space. These can blend with other natural décor colors like blues, greens and yellows, which can create a relaxing and inviting space.
Bringing outdoor elements indoors is all about texture. The feeling of the room, which includes physical touch and visual appearance, is partially created by the materials used. Wood is definitely one element that can lend a visual texture while tactile materials like hemp and leather enhance physical texture. Integrating other elements of nature like plants also adds a new layer of texture to the space.
Artificial lighting can dramatically enhance a room. Reflective décor like mirrors and shiny objects bounce light around a room. As the light bounces off of the colors and textures of your home, the entire room will feel united with nature.
While artificial light is important, natural light brightens up the room and makes it feel vibrant and fresh. However, with sunlight often comes glare, UV rays and heat gain. Interior window shades from Polar Shades allow light to filter in while blocking harmful UV rays and glare. This also reduces heat gain, which means you’re A/C unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool.
