5 ways to design around nature
Nature is one of the foremost darlings of the design world, and designing an entire interior around a creatively natural phenomenon is an art of its own. We live in cities full of skyscrapers and suburbs that are mostly just slapped with the most menial of nature Band-Aids. The world is slowly but surely becoming an asteroid of architectural garbage, and in times like these, it is more important than anything else to design each and every component of buildings around and about usable, workable, completely intriguing and intrusive nature. Not only does it provide a healthy way to live, but also makes the interiors more refreshing, lively and livable.
- In small doses
While it is good to incorporate the best natural habitats in large does on the outside, linking the indoors with the outdoors is a completely different challenge indeed. If you look at the image below, you will see how the sliding glass door provides a refreshing view of the outside; bringing in a wealth of resplendence to the inside.
- Utilizing all angles
When it comes to designing successful interiors, it is important to consider the views from all angles of the space before planning the layout. In the image below, you will see how each nook and cranny of the room come study has been creatively designed to utilize the nature that lies just outside the window.
- Enhancing the outsides
If you carefully observe the image below, you will notice one very intriguing trend. The color scheme has been specifically laid out as a bare, straightforward grey with little to no contrast. That is mostly because the nature on the other side of the door-window is the actual contrast. The drab color scheme allows the eye to be attracted towards the refreshing look outside, instead of being cooped up on the inside.
- Terrace come balcony
The public and semi-public zones of a home are mostly cordoned off from the outside. This is a trend that was fortified by contemporary apartment design, which have less room for providing balconies or natural ventilation spaces. In the image below, you can see just how reinvigorating that one, small look at the outside can be. The dining come kitchen has been intrinsically linked with the outside, creating a rejuvenating entrancement to the nature outside.
- All out nature
It is very important to link the indoors with the outdoors in the best possible way, and most of the time there are very few opportunities to utilize nature in the interior. In the image below, you can see that even a small, narrow balcony outside the room can be lined with plants of various sizes and tones, and the walls and windows can be deceptively designed to bring in as much nature as possible.
