People have always loved to bring elements of nature into their homes, from flowers to potted plants, but with the modern trend toward minimalism, it seems we’re seeing less and less living nature in our homes these days. However, there are still some great ways to keep these elements in even the most modern home designs.
First, realize what color “nature” tends to mean: green. Plants themselves are part of the color chart, so it’s important to consider how those shades fit into your interior color schemes. Even the shape and texture of flowers and plants have an effect on the overall trend of the room.
For a sleek, modern look, we like to use plants that keep very straight, simple lines. Combined with the right vase or pot, this can add a note of freshness and elegance to a space, using that feeling of controlled wilderness to add a compellingly refined touch.
For more traditional spaces, we also like to use plants and flowers that come in more eccentric forms with more intricate color accents. If you do this, be careful to follow the same line of color throughout the rest of the space so it feels like a necessary fixture, not a distraction.
