3 tips on how to bring nature home
September 7, 2017
Keeping pace with the Singaporean way of living often invites unwanted stress and hassle. Create an atmosphere of natural serenity today and chase your worries away. How? It all boils down to colour, light, and style.
Colour: Connect your home to nature with down-to-earth tones
Sometimes, making a garden in your own home is all about being picky with colours and colour schemes. We, at Danish Design Co recommend colours of nature such as grey, white, ivory, or shades of beige, which gives your space softness. These colours induce neutrality and bring peace to homeowners, important for Singaporeans with busy schedules and are looking to their abode as a respite from the bustle of city life. To ensure visual continuity between furniture, we suggest sticking to colours with the same hues. Unity between the elements in your home is essential to calm those frazzled nerves!
Light: Dawn to dusk, in your home too.
Desire light without all its glaring glory? Play with soft and natural light. Instead of outright fluorescent lamps, opt for the types of lights which calm nerves. Perhaps wall lamps and standing lamps could be more useful. Candles too! Anything works, as long as you’re not projecting strong, direct light, and instead, choosing implicit, indirect light. Need lights near your bed? Choose flexible wall-mounted reading lamps.
Style: Organic shapes, and furniture inspired by nature.
Explore earth’s natural wonders without leaving the comfort of your own home. These nature-inspired, organically shaped pieces of furniture creatively capture the beauty of God’s creations.
