The latest interior design trend is actually all about the exterior. Nature-inspired design is everywhere. So, how do you balance indoor technology with the colors and feel of the great outdoors? Use some of these quick and easy room renovation ideas.

 

Incorporate Plants

The most obvious way to include nature into your living room is by adding plants. You can group small plants together (hello succulents!) or focus on one big plant and larger pot on a stand. Don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb — if the commitment of real plants is too much, you can get the same look by using artificial plants.

Floral Prints

Add floral prints to your space in unique and interesting ways. You could buy a couple of floral pillows for your couch, or if you want to make a bigger statement, purchase floral curtains and rugs for your mini room renovation. Don't be afraid to layer pattern on patterns. The pros recommend unifying the color pallet and varying large and small patterns to create visual interest and depth.

Paint it Green

If you really love green and are really ambitious, you can paint your living room TV wall this year’s Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery. According to Pantone, Greenery is “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.” Based on the psychology of color, painting a room green promotes health and tranquility — perfect for promoting a relaxing environment to unwind. However, if Greenery is not for you, any color of green will be on trend for your nature inspired design!

Tech is more sophisticated than ever, but just because your equipment is space-age doesn't mean that your decor has to be. We hope these tips help you balance tech with nature-inspired design in your living room.
