Bring the Outdoors In | JC Licht

Add nature-inspired décor to your living space to create a relaxing and zen home oasis. Sharon Grech, color and design expert for Benjamin Moore, shares some of her favorite tips to bring touches of the outdoor in. 

Natural Materials

Play with different combinations of texture and wood finishes. Start by incorporating furniture and accents made with natural materials to add an earthy feel. Rattan and wicker chairs or stools and sisal rugs integrate a tactile element and pair nicely with natural décor accents, such as clay, terra cotta and global-inspired fabrics.

Enhance With Light

Choose colors with pale and mid-tone hues of green, yellow and blue to mimic the warmth of the outdoors. “These colors work best to complement a botanical-inspired story inside your home,” says Sharon. Opt for colorful neutrals, such as Fernwood Green 2145-40 (pictured above), Crystalline AF-485 or Soleil AF-330. Finish also has an impact on both the light in your space and the color itself, so she recommends using an eggshell or matte finish for your wall.

Botanical Trend

Don’t forget about the simple beauty of plants. An easy way to transport nature inside is to add live plants or fresh flowers. Not only will this improve your mood and air quality, but your space will also feel more serene. You can also combine printed cushions with wall art and prints in your favorite floral patterns.
