How often do you walk through your home and think about the things you would like to have, but it’s just not the right time? When you walk in the door after being outside in the rain, you wish you had a place to hold your coat. Maybe you misplace your keys all the time, but would keep better track of them if you had a key rack. Unfortunately, these are a mere want, and not a need in your life, so you can’t justify the purchase. Well why not use a few cheap screws and make one yourself using the resources Mother Nature gave you? Here are some great natural home decor tips:
You can actually use wood as a wall rack for your home. If you live near a beach or a river, take walks along them and look for driftwood. Find a piece that looks straight, generally symmetrical, and sturdy. Take it home, strip it of excess twigs, and dry it out. Use your artistic abilities to make the wood into a beautiful wall rack! If you want more color, use some spray-paint and paint the wood. Driftwood art and driftwood furniture are great options for natural home decor!
One way to invite natural home decor is adding a piece to an existing display. Keep your eyes peeled for items that have an interesting shape. You might find a branch or rock that would sit atop a table to balance out a decorative mirror. Such a display adds a sense of style to any room. If you want some color, feel free to use your artistic skills and add some paint to the item!
Flowers are a great option for natural home decor! Soft and warm colors are often used in natural decor. You can make a room pop with a splash of color. A dish of bright flowers, or a brightly colored piece of coral can add a great touch to an otherwise boring environment.
Natural & Woodsy
You can also add a natural design, rather than a natural object. If you are a bit crafty, sew up some stunning throw pillows with a beach or woodsy theme. You can also find abstracts which can remind you of a natural theme. Most fabric stores offer a variety of interesting edges to give your pillows some character.
Tucked & Grouped
You can add some great touches when you tuck natural objects among your accessories. For example, you can tuck sea shells among your mantel designs. Try weaving in branches, shells, starfish and rocks.
If you have a lot of small objects, try storing them in groups. Those small items will turn into a great piece when they are grouped together!
Each of these ideas can be created with little or no money. You have to develop your eye to make your home as pleasing and calm as you desire. Start looking around for an object to add character to your home! We hope you have enjoyed these tips, good luck finding some natural home decor.
