It is a truth universally acknowledged that nature is good for us – surely this alone is reason enough to bring elements of the outside in during the winter months, aligning our homes with the natural cycle of the seasons. It is particularly in these cold times that we need our interiors to be even more cosy and comforting, waiting to envelope you in their warm embrace. The look and feel of cosy wood-based flooring and natural finishes really come into their own here, creating the perfect foundation from which to develop your nature-inspired interior.
Bring the outside in and enhance your home with the calming effect of nature.
Just as nature follows its own rhythm and tends towards hibernation over winter, so perhaps should we. All you need to create the right comforting environment indoors is a naturalistic design concept, complemented by woodgrain decors, matt surfaces, subtle earthy tones and enhanced with accessories in wood, linen or wool. For inspiration to recreate this look in your own home, take a look at our Living Nature style world. Artfully-placed accessories and accent pieces from the outdoors – such as tree trunks, pine cones and autumnal plants – complete the look. These small details accentuate the connection to nature. Add a touch of candlelight to soften and warm your interiors in these colder months.
