Nature-inspired interior (Case study)

Who wouldn’t like their apartment to look and feel more inviting and connected with nature? Nowadays, most people live in cities and although for a myriad of reasons, they choose prime central locations, they want to still remain connected with  nature; so how do you bring nature into your apartment?

First thing that probably springs into your mind is ‘plants’ and I would say definitely ‘yes’ provided you actually don’t forget to water them and don’t go hiking every weekend…So if you’re one of these flat owners who doesn’t necessarily have a lot of time to look after the plants, better not put them there 😉

How else can you bring the elements of nature into a rather monochromatic apartment? Use colours and textures from a natural environment- select your palette very carefully unless you don’t mind a colourful jungle look 😉 Remember that textures will help you make the space feel cozy.

You can go step further and purchase a few pieces which resemble those from nature, such as these stunning tree trunk side tables Katie Malik Interiors have specified for the Vesta Project in central #Cambridge:

Think about your artwork! If you’re afraid of being too bold with colour, bring it in your art! And how about some botanicals?

Or if you’re not a big fan of botanicals, why not opt for some beautiful landscapes?

#KatieMalikInteriors has started installations on the #Natureinspiredapartment and we are hoping for the completion beginning of July 2016! It’s going to be real retreat in #centralcambridge
