10 ways to embrace nature within your home decor
Greenery in the home is such a huge Interior Design trend for 2018. We’re starting to embrace natural elements within our home, and work spaces as an antidote to the urban lives that we live. For some this means introducing small house plants, or green elements to their interiors, while others might be more daring and submerge their homes in foliage, plant prints, and green textures/colours.
Whether you’re thinking of converting your lounge into a greenhouse, or just bringing new life into your home, here are some ideas to help you get started…
1. Sage is the new Beige!
One of the hottest Interior Design Trends set to take over this year is the introduction of muted greens. Say goodbye to beige, bland walls, and embrace a change. Neutral doesn’t have to be white or cream, welcome colour into your home, and be amazed at how cosy, fresh and inviting it can be

2. Brave Botanica
If you’re feeling brave this year, a bold botanical wallpaper might be the one for you. There are hundreds of options out there, from budget wallpapers, to indulgent ones. We love this metallic sheen tropical paper from Julien Macdonald. Finish the look with foliage and succulents

3. Planty Prints
If you’re not brave enough to adorn your walls with tropical wallpapers, or green paints, consider using tropical wall art. There’s loads of beautiful illustrations to choose from. Why not make a feature wall by having numerous size prints / plants.

4. Softer Furnishings
If redecorating is too much for you, there are easier ways to introduce Interior Design trends into your home. Try new soft furnishings, and be amazed at what a difference a small change can make. Introducing green colour palettes is easier than ever, as there is such a large selection to choose from in your favourite high street stores.

There is such a large range of furniture available now, it’s never been easier to get a great price and a variety of colour options. Velvet is the fabric of the season, bringing an air of luxury to any home. We love this velvet sofa from Sofa Sofa. Luxurious, modern and bang on trend

6. Home Accessories
Take on the green trend with your home accessories. Decorative items, beautiful glassware, and unique lighting pendants are a great way to add colour accents to your home, without being overpowering.

7. Kitchen Inspiration
If you’re looking to have a new Kitchen, or maybe painting your current cupboards to freshen up your space, consider a soft green. Not only is it very on trend, it creates a calming, modern feeling, with an inviting and homely vibe. There are hundreds of inspirational images on pinterest to get your creativity flowing. We love this DeVol Kitchen, not only does it incorporate sage, there are also brass elements, with industrial windows/doors, and herringbone floor, which are all massive trends set to take over in 2018.

Bringing natural colours into your bathroom can be as simple as changing your towels. Retailers offer a fantastic colour palette in towels, from bright greens, to softer sage greens. Finish off the look with a leaf print blind. We love this bathroom mood board which we presented to a client, the walls and tiles in the bathroom are neutral, allowing the soft furnishings to really POP

9. Bedroom Inspiration
Brighten up you bedroom with a nature inspired duvet set. There are loads of choices on the high street, ranging from tropical, to botanical prints. Finish the look off with some metal accents, or decorative cushions.

10. Plants, Plants, Plants
Finally, the thing that started this whole trend... The Plant.
Adorn your home with plants large and small, you'll be amazed at the difference it makes to your mental wellbeing. Don't panic if you're not very good at tending to plants, there are plenty of prosthetic plants on the market that look just as good (Although we prefer real!)
