5 Ways to Add Nature to Your Decor

As far as interior design is concerned, there are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating your home. If you want your home to feel earthy and natural, check out these nature-inspired home decor ideas.

As a real estate agent, I tour many homes in and around Orlando, Florida. In Florida home interiors, I’m noticing a shift in pops of color to more subtle and calming colors. Earthy tones and natural elements combined with modern designs are becoming more and more trendy!

Recently I went on a home tour in one of the suburban neighborhoods and had to share the beautiful interior of this home. This neutral design was infused with natural textures and nature. I loved the wood accents paired with multiple textures and muted tones.

5 Ways to Add Nature Inspired Home Decor

There are five ways that you can achieve the same look in your home without overdoing the decor. Below are my favorite tips for creating an earthy look for your home.


When it comes to flooring, there are a couple of options that work. Luxury vinyl flooring or wood tiles are the recommended options because they can look natural and complement all sorts of furniture and home decor.
