Nature Decor Ideas for 2014

01.01.2014
Filed Under: color, home and garden

For 2014 my decor ideas will be a combination of  modern, vintage, simple and nature ideas. Bold color is going to  play an important role as well. This will also include any CRAFT  DIY that I would like to share with your all!

Nature Decor Ideas for 2014

Feature painted walls will add that fun appeal to a room.  This year I am building a new home and I have been looking at colors such as turquoise, purple, blue and green and will be adding subtle touches of this color throughout my home.

Because nature is a big part of my home-life I will be adding some of this element  such as tree stump end table, oyster shell flooring and concrete flooring with river rock design. Did you know! that concrete flooring costs about 1/3 the price than hardwood floors. Early part of the year I will have a post and page on the construction of my home.   A Drift Wood lamp is on my agenda for the next Project on my list.

Furniture ideas for 2014

When it comes to furniture I  love contemporary, classy and elegant .   I love reusing furniture pieces I own. Vintage furniture never goes out and combining them with new is my favorite way to decorate.

Junking around for unique items in 2014

I’ll invest in something small and unique items to add the WOW factor.  I’m will be rummaging through antique shops and consignment shops looking for sustainable wood such as bamboo mirrors, cane chairs  and rattan furniture. Keeping NATURE! thing very much alive.  I have upholstered many of my old chairs and sofas  in white because it will make the room look clean and light!

      Its not easy to do it, so I had someone else do it for a faily reasonble price. Shop around, You can also use slip covers to get a similar look for less. Thanks for stopping by Maria

    Oh my goodness I love all of these ideas! I moved into a brand new home in March 2013 and I’m finally getting around to really painting and decorating and making it my own. I love the idea of incorporating little touches of nature everywhere. I definitely want to do that in the nursery that I’m about to start working on! Happy New Year!

    • Maria Brittis

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Its so exciting to decorate a new home! I just sold my home and building a smaller home! I will have more nature ideas for decorating and great idea to start adding nature decor in the nursery. I do these painted pine cones in pastel colors, baby blue, pink, misty green. There is a post on it if you look up pine cone in search box. You can put a whole bunch in a pretty basket on the top of a bureau. Ill put you on my invite list for a Link Party! Take Care Maria

    Gorgeous designs! My strong suite is not interior design, but I do enjoy it and certainly appreciate it. I love that mint green room and that cream dining room with the fireplace…gorgeous!

    • Maria Brittis

      Thanks you are so nice! Designing takes work but everyone can do it, I did not go to design school but I taught myself with books and free styling.

      Take care Maria

    Love the turquoise room. Would you be willing to share the name/manufacturer of the wall paint. Absolutely beautiful. Have been trying to find a turquoise paint that i like. Have been to the paint stores for so many samples, they know me by name.

    • Maria Brittis

      That particular wall is wall paper but I have almost the same color on my daughter bedroom I’ll go to my paint list for my home and send it to you I know it’s sherwin Williams for staters. I’ll let you know in a day or so thanks for reading my post. Thanks. Maria

            Thank you so much. I was searching for “turquoise room de orating ideas” and then hit images and your blog showed up. Bookmarked and showed to my husband, who, OMG, liked it. Finally turquoise colours we can agree on. I ‘ll grab samples og these colours and will let you know how it goes. Thank you again. Love your rooms, they are just wonderful.

  • Linda Todd

    I just followed my email you sent me to your blog. I love home also. I love decorating and trying to make things old; feel and look new. I can see that we have a lot in common, but no my home does not look like yours. I love the turquoise also. My living room is a brushed rose color, I use green, blue & white porcelain with mirror framed in darker silver, and picture frames of silver. The fire place is white. But, still nothing like yours. This is beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Linda

    I love the color choices. I also like the idea of combining vintage pieces with more modern ones. It gives the room personality.
