This article is written by Nick’s Building Supply Inc to provide you with advice for your home

The two places where you feel at peace are nature and your house. They are soothing spaces that encourage stress-free relaxation. 

But do you ever feel like your house has a little too much chaos? The best way to resolve this issue is to implement more natural elements around your home

Use an earthy color palette

Earth tones are the foundation of a home decorated with natural materials. A simple way to accentuate natural elements is to decide which colors you resonate with the most. 

Earth tones consist of shades of green, brown, gray, blue, red, and pink. All you need is the proper approach to select the preferred shades.

A warm-toned earthy color palette 

Nothing makes a space feel cozier than a warm color palette. Colors like navy blue, brick red, reddish brown, pale pink, tan, and olive green fit effortlessly. 

A cool-toned earthy color palette 

Cool colors have gray and blue undertones. They make homes feel contemporary yet calming. The cool-toned earthy color palette includes light gray, sage green, pale blue, white, sandy brown, and pastel yellow. 

A moody earthy color palette 

Perhaps the warm- and cool-toned colors are too bright. You love the dark academic aesthetic and moody shades of each color. 

Your home will thrive when you select the following colors: terracotta, dark olive green, charcoal gray, dark brown, and beige.

A green earthy color palette 

Maybe none of these ideas resonate with your style. Instead, you want your home to be as green as can be! Olive green, sunshine yellow, light green, and beige will complement one another admirably. 

Incorporate a rustic wood feature wall 

Painting four walls the same plain color can become boring. Feature walls are wonderful ways to establish a room’s focal point and add interest. 

Wood is one of the most praised natural materials. You likely have plenty of wooden furniture around the house. The natural gritty grain and sensational stain will result in a sumptuous bedroom, kitchen, or living room. 

Embrace floral designs 

Although fresh flowers are lovely to have around the house, using them is a non-permanent solution. Homeowners who adore florals should consider embracing this pattern through home décor. 

Use floral tiles in the shower or for the backsplash in the kitchen. Try installing a floral wallpaper feature wall in the bathroom, bedroom, or office space. There are many flower species to choose from, alongside plenty of different styles, from realistic to moody to classic. 

Add stone and crystal décor 

There are countless décor opportunities available outside of deciding the color palette or installing feature walls. A simple addition is to incorporate décor made of stone. This includes stone vases or uncommon pottery sculptures. 

Crystals are another unique option. They’re natural materials available in colors ranging from white to purple to red. Consider adding a glass jar full of an array of crystals or a large crystal with illuminating colors and jagged edges. Each little element will collectively contribute to creating a cohesive interior design

Integrate solid wood doors 

Natural wood is one of the most sought-after components for homeowners searching to elevate their home’s design. The final effective way to implement natural elements around your home is to upgrade each interior door with solid wood. 

There are many shades of brown to choose from based on your favored earthy color palette. Whether they’re beige, reddish brown, or a classic dark brown, new interior solid wood doors will make a difference in your home’s design. 

🏠Marvellous wall mural transformation

We interview Cherry, from @cherry_at_home on her recent bedroom transformation using a wallpaper mural to completely overhaul a neutral bedroom into a tropical oasis!

Read the interview below, which covers what mural she used, her design style and advice and tips on doing this transformation yourself!

About Cherry

“I’m a 30-something solo buyer trying to create my own cosy home. I’ve taken someone else’s neural space and am slowing adding colour, pattern and lots of plants!”

What inspired your decision for the mural?

“I painted the guest room in a simple neutral (a mistake though I liked the colour!) when I first moved in, in 2020 suddenly I was spending all my time in the room as it also became my home office. I’ve wanted to redecorate for a while and had my eye on wallpapering the whole room. When Hovia got in touch, I was instantly drawn to the Redoute mural and the impact it would create in the room; it also contains my key colours – pink, mustard & teal.” 

Cherry’s interior style

“I love lots of different styles and my taste changes based on the style, setting and age of a property. Typically it will involve colour & clashing patterns – I’m not a coordinated person!”

Before & after

“It was a cold room and very simple, now it looks warmer and cosier but also bigger.”

Where is the wallpaper from?

Hovia – they have a wonderful selection of wallpapers and murals. I was really lucky that they were happy to work with me on a mural to run around the whole room rather than a feature wall.”

What tools did you need to do the walls?

“A tape measure and (large) spirit level to find your straight drops (even a relatively new building doesn’t have straight walls!), a large brush to paste the walls, a wallpaper brush to smooth out any bubbles as you hang the paper.”

How long did it take?

“I’m lucky that my mum is a good decorator and helped me – it took her about 4 days but I’m sure someone more experienced could do it quicker.”

What advice can you offer someone looking to have a wall mural in their bedroom?

“The mural is scaled to fit your walls so remember it won’t look exactly like the sample you have. Be confident in your choice and don’t shy away from a bold design – trust your gut!”

What interior trends are you loving at the moment?

“Stripes – they never go out of fashion, maximalism, bold kitchens!”
