Use natural materials to bring tranquillity

We spend a lot of time in our homes, so it is important that it reflects our personalities while helping us to relax, unwind and forget about the stresses of the outside world. Unfortunately, we cannot all live in our dream homes, sometimes our house doesn’t have a lot of natural light, the majority of the materials that we use are synthetic, or there is no connection to the outdoors, all of these factors can affect the tranquillity of our living spaces. Using natural materials in our home can improve our well-being and reduce stress levels as well as looking great!


Introducing natural material into your home can create a calm and revitalising environment, using fabrics like silk, wool and linen is an easy way to embrace all things natural and with today’s printing technology these fabrics can be a lot more stylish than they once were. Using wood instead of man-made materials is a great way to make your home more natural as well as adding a lot of character.

This year sees the rise of another trend, we’ve experienced Hyyge from the Danish and now its Lagom from the Swedish. Not only is it easier to pronounce, but it’s a simple way to live. Embracing the “reduce, reuse and recycle” mantra it gives you the opportunity to reupholster and recycle those old pieces of furniture that no longer fit in with your interiors.


The best way to design a more natural interior is by bringing in the outdoors. Plants and flowers are easy to incorporate into the home, even if you’re only in a small flat. Use the colour green, the colour most synonymous with the outdoors and accessorise with floral motifs.
