Don't forget that you will need to place your climbing plants under the trellis in order to see the plants grow over this structure. Still, the very graphic result will awesomely dress your walls in green and metal!

Bet on 100% natural colors and materials

Beauty is expressed via the natural. To do this, decorate your room with natural materials, light shades and pastel tones. Forget about the too flashy colors and go for soft colors like beige or white. For an even more cocooning spirit, add a hint of blue, gray or green that will go perfectly with the natural motifs, in order to make you feel like you are outdoors.

Natural materials such as wicker, bamboo, rattan, acacia, walnut, teak or even raw wood are to be used without moderation, for a natural and warm atmosphere. Indeed, these materials give an impression of the outside... while inside, being very calming and relaxing.

On the textile side, linen or cotton will be perfect to wrap your interior in a soft, country-chic atmosphere.

Brightness and openness

For an atmosphere as close as possible to nature, openings and exposure are essential. Indeed, an interior in harmony with nature is a friendly and bright space that exudes well-being and relaxation.

Choose natural outdoor light over artificial lights. Moreover, remember that open spaces are more conducive to bringing a natural atmosphere to your interior.

In addition, the absence of partitions will allow you to  quickly and easily obtain good ventilation. So avoid placing your furniture in front of openings, windows or bay windows, unless it is low.

Avoid curtains that block light and remember to clean the windows regularly to prevent dust and dirt from accumulating!

Is your interior facing north? Large mirrors are the allies of interiors lacking in light! Placed in front of a window, the mirror will reflect the outside light for an immediate impression of space saving!

Our advice - if you don't have a lot of windows, scatter the points of light rather than concentrating them in one place like on a single table or console.

Natural accessories for a cocooning atmosphere

Neglected by many, natural decorative accessories are important components for a natural interior in a cozy spirit. Acquire some cushions in natural colors, floor lamps and wooden decorative objects, soft rugs in cotton (brown or beige).

Your interior must breathe authenticity!

And to give your design a natural touch, consider finding old furniture and other original decorative items at a flea market. However, avoid any accumulation and do not overload your interior with accessories that could ruin the relaxed, airy atmosphere!
