Decorating your home involves attempting to place your own, personal style on a property; it often involves bringing nature or natural object into the home and these can provide style, sophistication and keep both the house and you grounded. The following tips will help you to bring the outside inside!

Keep it Simple

Flora and Fauna into Your Living Room

Sometimes all it takes is one piece of natural material, such as a piece of driftwood. It will create a stunning effect when placed in the right spot in your house.

Feng Shui

Feng Shui Plants
This ancient Chinese art has been practiced in China for hundreds of years. More recently it has arrived in Western countries. The theory behind it is that every item has positive or negative energy. These energies must be present and balanced in every room of the house; this will ensure harmony and peace in your home. Plants have huge amounts of positive energy and should be used in every room to balance any negative energy.

Natural Colors

Natural Colors
Adding natural colors to your home will help to balance the energy flows and feel like the flora and fauna have been brought inside. This will create a relaxing vibe which can be particularly beneficial to those who are highly stressed. In contrast to these colors it can often be beneficial to add some ivory or green to a living room. This will ensure the room has some color and is very inviting.


Flower Mirror
A mirror is often hung opposite a window in order to bring more light into your home. Sunlight is reflected and bounced around the room, creating a light, airy space and feel.  Mirrors can also be used to reflect images of the flora and fauna into your house; ensuring you can see the garden no matter where you are sat.  This will create a relaxing, positive environment.

Japanese Serenity

Tatami Flooring
The Japanese favor tatami flooring and sliding doors. The dining table and chairs are traditionally on the floor as they sit to eat and this effect can be recreated in your house by using split levels; creating seats which appear to be on the floor but are actually positioned at a table. The room should be kept simple and rustic with a few splashes of color. This will ensure you feel the benefits of the calm atmosphere and the serenity of the flora and fauna positioned strategically around the room.


Traditional Decorative Pillows
If you find it difficult to have the time to look after a variety of plants in your home then you may prefer to embrace flora and fauna by having them illustrated on cushions, flows or even rugs. The bright colors can add a bit of vibrancy to the room and even a little sophistication.

Fake Wood

Fake Wood
A new approach to bringing the outside inside is to use fake wood décor. This does not mean the flooring. The area around a fire can be set with a wooden style frame, pictures on the walls can be set into natural wood frames and even the couch can be chosen for its stripes and knotty effect. This will make you feel like you are living among the trees!

Cherry Blossom

This plant is considered to be a sign of good fortune and a long life. It is part of the Japanese culture and is an excellent complement to a neutral room. Extra effect can be created by adding bold splashes of color, preferably red to emphasize the color of the flowers; it also symbolizes passion.


The art you hang on the walls can make a huge difference to the feel of a room. Earthy prints will help to keep a room grounded whilst flowers will add a cheerful, uplifting environment. The perfectly balanced room will have elements of both.

Garden designs are an extremely relaxing way of rejuvenating your living room. Flowery designs have the purpose of making a space feel fresher and airier. It will instantly make you and your guests embrace the relaxing ambiance surrounding that room. If you’re ready to spice things up in your home, then you should definitely give botanic garden designs a chance to impress you.
