When it comes to nature, it’s not just about being outside – even viewing scenes of nature can help to reduce negative feelings, and even increase feelings of calm and overall happiness.

Plant life

Indoor plants are perfect for every room, from the high humidity of the bathroom to sunny open-plan lounges. If you’re not particularly green-fingered look for low-maintenance plants such as lavender, aloe or a stunning peace lily or two.

Such pretty colours work brilliantly against a neutral background. Contrast the stunning greens, purples and pinks against a soft toned wallpaper such as gold or silver to compliment the nature aesthetic.

Love a leafy wall

Potted plants aren’t the only way to give your decor more of a nature-inspired vibe. From traditional tropical colours to bold and modern alternative colour schemes, leaf wallpaper designs are a great choice. One of our favourite combinations is green and soft pink. Do a playful take on the green wallpaper trend with coordinating accessories, such as this funky monkey lamp!

Best of both worlds

After all, there’s a reason scandi-cool has been one of the biggest styles hits in the last few years – combine it with botanical wallpaper prints and rack up the likes!
