Home Decor Inspired Of Mother Nature – Making the decision to repaint your home is often easy in comparison to deciding what colors to use in each room. Instead of starting your search inside the paint store, try stepping outside and let Mother Nature be your guide and inspiration for your following home decor.
A walk in the woods
If your ideal way to pass a Sunday afternoon is a long walk in the park, greens and shades of brown – another relaxing colors – may be the colors that’s right for you.
And since green leaves are very often found attached to trees, it’s not surprising that just about any shade of green looks great when complemented by light or dark shades of brown. Since green leaves also complement many kinds of fruit and flowers, a green and beige combination, for example, can create a vibrant forest-fresh atmosphere that is still relaxing.
By the beautiful sea
Blue has been a favorite home decorating color for thousands of years, and with good reason. Blue, the color of the sky and the sea, is a calming color. But because it’s a cool color it usually needs to be warmed up. Mother Nature does that at the beach, where the golden brown grains of sand provide a warm contrast to the blue waters. So if you’re a lover of the sea, consider decorating a room using a combination of pale blue walls and furniture that lets the natural warm beauty of the wood shine through.
Let the sunshine in
If you’re the type who wishes the sun would shine 24/7, why not paint one room of your home a vibrant yellow? Yellow and blue (think of a field of daffodils dancing beneath a cloudless blue sky) is a striking combination, while a color scheme that incorporates just different shades of yellow will give you a room of pure sunshine.
A bouquet of color
Flowers offer a wealth of color possibilities. If you pay close attention, you’ll see that you’re attracted more strongly to certain colors. Perhaps you love the deep red hues of a rose, the more delicate pink of a spring blossom, the shades of purple found in a pansy, ultra violet or lilac, or the bright orange of a marigold. Painting all the walls of a room in a strong color will present a striking effect. If you feel it will be too striking, consider painting just one wall a strong color and painting the other walls a lighter tone or a shade of off-white.
A new paint job is a wonderful way to revitalize your home. It’s also an opportunity to surround yourself with an ambience that speaks deeply to your soul. So don’t be afraid to choose home decor color schemes that speak to your needs and tastes. And if you don’t know where to begin, begin by having a talk with Mother Nature.
