How To Leverage Interior Design That Combines Nature And Elegance
Interior design is a highly personal, deeply expressive application of fundamental design principles that bring nature's elements together to create a space unique to you.
How can you combine design styles such as modern and classic, soft neutrals and bright colors all in harmony?
In this piece, we’re exploring that very concept to help you craft a space that’s your own, infused with the peace and harmony found in nature.
If you want to create it, we are here to share our knowledge and expertise on how to infuse the beauty of nature into your space. Let’s get started!
Three Key Elements Of Combining Nature + Elegance
Often, when you think about bringing nature-inspired elements into an interior space, the first image that comes to mind is a room full of plants, a color scheme of varying shades of green or heavy and rough wood features. Of course, while style is a personal preference, if you favor a more sophisticated, elegant interior, the thought of plants to maintain too much of one color or texture can be discouraging.
How can you bring natural details altogether without sacrificing elegance? Let us show you three ways to balance elegance and nature in your interior.
Understanding Biophilic Interior Design
The art of bringing natural elements into your home while maintaining a sense of refinement has a name – Biophilic Interior Design, which can be broken out into three categories:
Nature in the Space
Nature in the Space is the idea of having a connection with nature. This includes, but is not limited to, both visual elements that you’re able to see and non-visual elements that you’re not able to see but perhaps can feel or hear. It could be a small, nature-encompassing space you can look at in your physical location, like a courtyard in an office building or a beautifully landscaped yard.
Natural Analogues include textured shapes of forms within a space that are reminiscent of natural elements. This could be a light fixture that has organic, vine-like curves or simply the inclusion of natural materials, like mahogany or stone, to create accent details throughout your space.
Nature of the Space
Nature of the Space is the idea of creating a space that feels large and open, one where you can observe nature with an uninterrupted view. In this way, you can take in the vastness of landscapes without feeling obstructed. By bringing this concept to an interior space, it can translate simply to the idea of being able to clearly see from one area to another with easy access to entry and exit points. It could also mean considering orienting your space around a natural element, like water and a beautiful outdoor view.
