The top home decorating trend: Infusing natural elements into the decor

Nature is bringing a breath of freshness into property decorating, but it&rsquos a lot more than just incorporating flowering pots or opening windows. The most current home decorating trend functions organic elements in the textures and finishes of furniture and accessories, giving homeowners an elegant &ndash and typically calming&nbsp&ndash outcome of blending nature and residence living into a stunning space.

&ldquoWe actually want to see the handprint of nature in our residences now,&rdquo says Elaine Griffin, New York interior designer and author of Design and style Guidelines. &ldquoOrganic in the house is huge. It&rsquos 1 of the biggest trends for the year, and it&rsquos going to stay with us for a while.&rdquo

Bring this elegance into your personal house with the following decorating suggestions from Griffin:

* Bring exotic looks into your kitchen with new cabinets that go beyond the standard oak or cherry woods. Griffin suggests utilizing rosewood or zebra wood &ndash woods formerly reserved for custom furnishings. And as both new construction and remodeling projects embrace the open floor strategy concept, cabinets are visible from many rooms, which tends to make it a style upgrade not only for the kitchen, but for adjacent spaces, as properly.

* The newest furniture design trends also reflect the developing popularity of organic materials and textures, Griffin says, no matter whether it&rsquos a table tops left in the organic oak wood finish, or driftwood incorporated into furnishings or accessories. The pale gray coloring of driftwood, combined with honey or pale colors used on other furniture or the walls is opening up spaces &ndash moving away from the darker colors.

* The organic appear isn&rsquot just for the kitchen and living places it&rsquos also best for the bathroom. Robern vanities and mirrors featuring Digital Wood harness the warmth of six diverse wood species utilizing high-definition scans that are printed on the backside of the glass surface. The result: an simple-to-maintain material that won&rsquot be affected by the humidity or heat generally located in bathrooms.

&ldquoWhat&rsquos genius about these new finishes from Robern is that they used the best technologies to create a convincing representation of genuine wood that you couldn&rsquot usually use in a bathroom,&rdquo Griffin says. &ldquoPlus, the collection has so several wood prints that you can get one particular that matches your bathroom style.&rdquo

* The era of matching all fabrics, designs and components in a space has shifted into combining components of all into a gorgeous room setting, Griffin says.

&ldquoAll wonderful rooms need a mixture of finishes for furniture, with something that&rsquos painted, something that&rsquos wood, anything that&rsquos a metallic gold leaf, something that&rsquos ceramic,&rdquo she says. &ldquoThat&rsquos the secret to professionally styled rooms.&rdquo

A trend to contemplate: the Belgium-influenced neo-industrial style, which brings a softer, organic yet industrial touch to rooms. &ldquoIt&rsquos a soft industrial. It means you&rsquove combined the wood elements with metal. And that metal could be gold leaf,&rdquo Griffin advises.

Producing warm, comfy surroundings infused with a sense of eco-elegance is why the organic components trend has been so embraced. About to embark on your personal remodel or residence refresh?
