9 Nature Inspired Decorating Ideas

The past several months I’ve been making changes to my home decor, opting for earthier tones inspired by nature. I’m adding more houseplants too, but there are other ways to bring the outdoors in. Here you’ll find 9 nature inspired decorating ideas!

The first is an entryway lined with garden botanical wallpaper. A garden hat with tools add create a potting room vibe.

Create an architectural, nature inspired decorating element by grouping a variety of tall branches in a large rustic vase. You can achieve the same look on a smaller scale with short branches and a small vase.

Back to houseplants. They’re probably the easiest option for adding a bit of nature to every room in your house. Anyone can have a green thumb. Just make sure you select the right plants for the amount of light your room receives and then follow the water instructions for your particular plant.

Floral wallpaper adds a garden touch and is available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Farrow & Ball has some amazing options!

On a smaller scale, add a framed nature inspired poster or print. I love vintage bird images. Pair it with a topiary for increased appeal.

In the kitchen, a group of white-framed botanical prints bring the outside in. A grouping of small plants on the refrigerator lends texture to the white space.

Highly creative types will love the banister made from birch branches! Even the twig light fixture takes its cue from nature.

 Emphasis is given to a single botanical print in the dining room by leaving the rest of the wall blank. A trailing plant scrambles across the table like a runner.

Blue and green come together to create a serene bedroom. Vintage plant posters are left unframed while a bird poster adorns a corner of a small mirror.
