Consider natural textiles

Whether it’s the blanket on your bed or the baskets your plants sit in, natural textiles are a great choice for making a bedroom feel natural.

Hanging macramé will work well, as will straw baskets to give the room a worldly feel of the outside in.

Add global touches

If you like to travel, then why not bring a bit of personality to your bedroom by adding global touches?

That’s not necessarily filling every nook and cranny with every souvenir you can think of but adding rustic touches such as a distressed chest, wall map or globe can work well with a natural bedroom theme.

INCORPORATE a coastal theme

It’s easy to think of an earth theme when it comes to creating your perfect natural bedroom, but what about coastal interiors?

According to Interior Style Advisor Rebecca at Furniture Choice: “Blue and white have always been classic choices for beach decor, pairing beautifully to boot.

Traditionally, the shades of choice have tended to be lighter blues like turquoise and aquamarine, but for a 2019 update, go for darker tones, like deep indigo and navy.”

consider a forest theme

Alternatively, why not bring a forest theme into your bedroom by bringing in a splash of green to a neutral colour scheme?

A smattering of dark emerald green can evoke feelings of leaves in the woodland, paired perfectly with a touch of gold.


Add nature themed art

A simple way to update a neutral wall is to add framed art. This doesn’t need to be expensive or require serious artistic skill, why not press leaves you’ve collected on walks into frames?

You could even switch it out according to season, using browner leaves in the autumn.

Alternatively, create a gallery wall instead if you’d like even more interest.

ACCESSORIsE with touches of nature

For the perfect finishing touch to any natural themed bedroom, why not draw inspiration from nature itself?

You could add a collection of shells to a ceramic bowl or feature tree trunk tables that’ll make a real statement to the side of the bed.
