Environment Inspired Home Décor Trends

From tables to light fixtures, there are plenty of ways you can bring home a touch of the nature indoors.

These elements give a nod to the great outdoors, while adding an understated and simplistic touch of beauty to the interior of your home.

Keep reading to find out what some of our favorite environmentally inspired home decor trends are this season:

Artisan Wood Tables

Forget using a table that is made of processed wood; instead, bring in an artisan table that is constructed of natural wood, (this trend has sparked a salvaged-wood trend that’s also good for the environment). Choose a large, oversized table that has been made from a piece of solid wood and still maintains a natural form to create a really distinctive look.

Not only are these types of tables one-of-a-kind, but they add a definite touch of nature to your interior space. This style of table is on trend, in part, because it brings an organic aesthetic and instantly brings a sense of warmth to a room. It’s a statement piece, without being too gaudy. The best part is that this type of table is a classic and it’s durable, that won’t ever go out of style.


Plant a natural garden inside your home. A terrarium is a fantastic way to bring in a real live garden, add color and texture to your space and increase the oxygen levels in your home. To really play up nature, bring a few terrariums in a variety of sizes. Smaller terrariums can be used to decorate side tables and larger ones can be used as focal points in the center of a dining table or on a wall shelf, for example.

Organic Lighting Features

Add interest to the interior of your home with lighting fixtures that are inspired by nature. These elements will add a touch of natural beauty and cast soft lighting throughout your space. More and more we are seeing light fixtures that feature branches as a focal point. Another example of this is beehive inspired pendant lighting.

A Water Wall

Add drama in a sophisticated and understated way with a water wall. Not only will water wall add a touch of natural beauty to your home, but it will also bring in the delicate and soothing sound of running water. Choose a water wall that is made of natural stone and you will truly feel as if you have transported a feature from the great outdoors into your home.

Bring a touch of nature into your home with these elements to create a relaxing and soothing environment. You will create a feeling of serenity and feel as if you are truly one with nature.
