We’ve all seen those beautiful homes on Instagram and Pinterest filled with beautiful plants, soft white and wooden furniture, and plenty of dried pampas grass. Whilst this home decor style might seem difficult to pull off, we’ve come up with a guide to show you just how easy it is to create this ethereal atmosphere in your own home. 

This natural home style is all about creating a whimsical bohemian feel in a paired back simple manner. Using warm neutral tones with minimal colour accents helps to create a serene atmosphere and sleek colour palette. 


Light airy feeling woods 

Light toned woods like oak and beech are a great way to create a natural feeling in your home. These help to bring an element of calm and neutrality into your home in a way that’s easy to style. 

Storage pieces are a great way to include this theme in your home as these pieces build the backdrop of the room. Our Anderson scandinavian style shelving unit in a beautiful oak effect brings the outdoors in, whilst still keeping a light and airy atmosphere. With cupboards in white or grey, this mid-century modern shelving unit helps to keep your belongings tidy and fits beautifully into any room. 

Inge Scandinavian dining set with Eames inspired chairs

Scandinavian dining

A natural dining space isn’t complete without a Scandinavian inspired dining table and chairs set. Our Inge dining range is the ideal solution for any size space. In a light wood with chairs in either dark grey, light grey, or white, Inge brings a subtle natural element to the space. Don’t forget to dress the table with a couple of small green plants to contrast the light woods. This simple scandi style dining set can become a central focus of your natural themed home. 

White Lisa Bed Frame

White base pieces

To bring this style into your bedroom think about a simple bed frame as a base for your room, adding natural accessories to introduce a light touch. Our Lisa white wooden bed frames are perfect for building a soft look in your home. The painted wood gives a fresh take on the natural theme and allows you to incorporate any colour alongside it.

To accessorise add large mirrors where you can to help make the room feel expansive and warm. Incorporating white curtains will help to make your bedroom feel ethereal, and can be easily matched with white bedding to complete the look. For pops of colour think about incorporating emerald greens to help enhance that natural look. Glass vases and embroidered cushions are a great way of bringing colour into the room without overwhelming the space. Wicker accessories like blanket baskets and light shades are perfect for finishing off the room.

Traditional woods

Bringing the outdoors in is easy through the inclusion of natural woods. Traditional wooden pieces can be combined with whites to create a juxtaposition between delicate fabric pieces and the hard nature of the wooden accents. Our Corona Mexican pine collection is built in a traditional design with black hardware and matches beautifully with a white or cream sofa to create a harmonious relationship between nature and home comforts. In a beautiful pine, our Corona living room furniture looks great with neutral colour palettes to keep the atmosphere of the room soft and inviting. Swap out flowers for dried grasses, olive leaves or eucalyptus to enhance this natural feeling. This chic take on rustic styling works beautifully when matched with a delicate rug and some wicker accessories. 

Accessories 

Wicker and rattan are key components of this natural style. Simple baskets in your living room will offer a place to keep blankets and spare pillows for cosy evenings in or add wicker boxes to your shelves to store essentials in your bedroom. Lampshades in rattan help to bring a warm glow into the room and are easily added to your home to incorporate this style. 

Rugs are another simple way to add a natural touch to your home. Think unique textures like rattan, rope and faux furs. Or, include white rugs with simple black diamond prints to help bring a chic element to the room. 

Don’t forget to add simple pieces of decor to your home; wooden accessories like mirrors and picture frames bring the outside in and homemade macrame wall hangings bring a boho quality to the room.
