For instance, earthy hues such as blue, green, brown, or rusty shades can effortlessly evoke images of the outdoors and make you feel like you are one with nature.
Lush forests, rocky mountains, bright flowers, and fiery sunsets found in nature are gorgeous colour inspirations. Carefully selecting the colour palette for your space is one of the most straightforward and affordable ways to make your interior feel like an extension of nature.
As a starting point for an outdoorsy scheme, pick colours you might see when out and about to use on your walks. Consider the mood you want to create: grassy greens and light blues will make a space feel fresh and airy - while earthy taupes, rusts, and browns can be used to create an enveloping feel in rooms where comfiness is key, like living rooms and bedrooms.
ORGANIC MATERIALS AND TEXTURES

It is a great idea when introducing an organic decor style to start with the framework of a modern room and then incorporate natural elements. Use touchable textures and organic materials such as wood, marble, stone, concrete, bamboo, stained elm, woven cattail, rattan, leather, and seagrass.
We know it’s obvious that wood would be the first on our list. Wood is an exquisite organic material to introduce into your home. It can transform a stark space, making it feel cosy and warm because of it’s rich tones and variety of finishes.
Choose materials that reflect your personal style. It could be dark mahogany flooring for your bedroom or natural rock walls in your bathroom. Whatever it is, choose natural elements that will make you feel at peace and relaxed.

If organic touches are something you crave, you'll definitely want to add some plant accents into your home. Bringing the outdoors in is perhaps the best place to start while thinking of making your room look more organic.
The good news is that plants are affordable and easy to source on a whim. They can make your interior spaces more appealing while also playing a fundamental role in your overall health and wellbeing. Yes, apart from revitalising a space - plants also have a lot of health benefits. They boost your mood and productivity, purify the indoor air, and reduce fatigue and stress.

Lastly, on our list of natural and organic decor ideas is to weave in patterns and textures by decorating your space with rugs. Textural objects made from natural fibres such as wool, cotton, and jute bring a sense of cosiness to a room - and can be an excellent way to achieve an organic look.
Rugs are among the most popular accessories to include in any interior, and for a good reason: not only can they effortlessly add necessary softness, warmth, and texture to any space, but they also help to section off a room, making it appear more structured and purposefully designed.
We have selected three gorgeous neutral rugs from our Indian, Moroccan, and Persian collections. Each rug is handmade from natural fibres for the perfect organic interior look. Let us know which is your favourite?
