We all love nature and bringing nature into our homes. Plants are some of a decorator’s favorite accessories and decorations that bring a little bit of nature into the living area are definitely preferred. If you are looking to bring more nature into your home, here are just a few of our favorite home furnishings in Atlanta that are inspired by nature.
There are a lot of beautiful options for lighting in the home, but some of the best options incorporate some part of nature. Some favorite lamps incorporate branches, wood, or leaves to make the lamp seem living—a combination of light and plant life. Though there are lots of options for beautiful forest-like lamps, there are also options that speak to the edge of nature; specifically, the ocean. You can usually find beautiful lamps that mimic shells, water, or even sea glass that reminds you of a day at the beach. Depending on what type of style you want for your home, both types of nature inspired lighting can be great.
Another great option, especially if you don’t have a lot of room, is combining live plants with furniture. There are lots of options now, and many people are excited about the opportunity to mix man-made creations with live plants. If you like the idea of picnicking, you might like a table split down the middle to make room for grass, herbs, or flowers. Though this may seem like a difficult idea, it creates room for plants where there wasn’t before. Another option is to find a table that combines growing plants with table legs. Vines usually work the best for this, as they can grow up table legs to create a “living” table.
Lastly, if you want to bring trees into your home, (which is impossible unless you have impossibly high ceilings) be sure to use stumps to your advantage. One of the best ways to incorporate stumps into your home is to use them as a side table or a coffee table. Not only do they bring the beauty of nature into the home, they make an absolutely perfect complement to a great sofa.
