World Environment Day – How You Can Connect More With Nature at Home

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY - HOW CAN YOU CONNECT MORE WITH NATURE AT HOME

World Environment Day reminds us to make a lot of changes in our lives – sustainable changes that make less of an impact on the earth. But something many of us seem to neglect is how we’re surrounding ourselves in our home. With screens at every turn in our daily lives, a lot of us are losing touch with nature and all that it has to offer. 


Nature reminds us to breathe, to step back, and to appreciate what we have in front of us. That’s why it’s so important to incorporate these trends into your space, reminding yourself and your loved ones to slow down once in a while. 
 

Especially after the onset of the pandemic, we’ve missed out on many of the little joys in life – long forest walks, watching the clouds go by, listening carefully as the birds sing their morning melodies.


We’re here to give you the best tips on how to connect more with nature in your home with our artworks, posters, wallpaper, homewares and furniture. With a focus on the environment, it’s only normal that the headliner for this inspo is our range of Aboriginal artwork collection, which is traditionally based around their strong connection to nature and how it influences their culture.
 

 

ORGANIC TEXTURES

One of the easiest places to start when incorporating nature-inspired pieces in your home is with texture. While textiles such as stone, raw timber, unstructured linen and rattan are perfect, you don’t always have to go so obvious. Textures within paintings are a great way to subtly bring that natural, soothing look and feel.


Choose Aboriginal artworks with interesting shapes and patterns that practically jump off the canvas and enhance the texture on a 2D surface. Lean towards neutral tones such as beige, brown, and khaki, but blue shades also share that connection with bodies of water. 


Homeware and furniture pieces set the scene for your space, so opt for those organic textures we mentioned above. If you want to balance things out, add one or two velvet or glass pieces for contrast, such as a cushion or a vessel, and don’t forget to truly bring nature in with some greenery and florals.

SOOTHING PALETTE

Don’t underestimate the power of the right colour palette within your space. With a cohesive colour theme, you can transform any room into a soulful sanctuary, connecting with the same colours you see each time you venture out into the natural world.


You can never go wrong with the classic nature-inspired tones, including khaki, brown, beige, warm orange-brown, yellow, and blue. White shades are important to break things up, so if you don’t already have white walls, make sure you balance things out with a few neutral white tones within your decor. 


Greens and warm browns are particularly important for a nature-inspired space. Warm brown tones create a sense of warmth and earthiness, while green shades make things pop by breathing some fresh air into the room. This can be done with anything from a poster, to a statement wallpaper, or a cushion set.

UNIQUE PIECES

There’s never been a better time than now to embrace your wild side and go for fun, quirky pieces in your home. This may not seem like an obvious choice when creating a nature-inspired space, but it actually fits so perfectly with this year’s theme for World Environment Day – Only One Earth. 


This reminder to cherish our one-and-only earth can be translated into your space by choosing unique and playful pieces that share that same one-of-a-kind feel. All Aboriginal pieces have that unique air to them, with abstract shapes, lines and compositions that instantly give them that special feel.


Other ways to incorporate interesting pieces include with a funky vessel, sculpture, statement furniture, or eye-catching wallpaper design.
