Celebrate the raw beauty of the natural world in your interior with these down to earth trends

Experimental and environmentally aware, the biophilic design trend is taking the interior world by storm. Shown to boost wellbeing and reduce stress, it's all about using the natural materials around us to create exciting interiors with an enticingly rustic feel, combining natural forms, organic textures and greenery.

Here's our hand-picked ideas for how you can celebrate the beauty and rawness of the natural world in your home.

 

Natural features

There's something comfortingly rugged about these curtains in Boheme Hemp. In this reading nook they help to create a neutral setting, balancing out the creamy tones and playing up to the texture.

Combine with heavy natural materials, like coir, sisal, hessian, from floor coverings to plant pots to complete the naturally cosy look.

Natural materials

The need for sustainable design has never been more important and we're proud to offer our range of recycled Roller blind fabrics manufactured from 100% recycled polyester yarn, originating from recycled PET polyester plastic bottles.

By choosing sustainable fabrics, we're able to deliver the same high quality performance blinds with a smaller impact on our natural environment, so not only are you creating a look that will help bring calm and serenity to you and your home, you're also creating a more sustainable living space.

Natural textures

This look is all about taking raw ingredients and mixing them together to create innovative and exciting interiors that truly embraces biophilic design. The juxtaposition of natural fabrics, worn-down and painted wood tones with the rigid plastic panelling transforms this dining room into a futuristic and visionary space.

Tropical greenery breathes life into the room, while a wave header style allows the curtains to drape in soft, rippling folds, enhancing the natural, laid-back feel.

Make the most of natural light

Natural light plays a big role in our wellbeing, and can have a positive impact on everything from physical to mental health, clarity and mood, and window dressings can help us to make sure we're maximising the benefits of natural light in our living and working environments. 

  • Sheer fabrics: Sheer fabrics like voile curtains and light-filtering blinds like Day & Nights allow gentle light diffusion while keeping your space private

  • Neutral tones: Go for white, cream, or beige fabric - these colours reflect natural light back into your room, enhancing the brightness.

  • Electric and smart blinds: Easily control multiple blinds throughout the day to make the most of the light. You can even programme them to open when the sun rises so you wake up to natural lighting in the mornings

Natural patterns

The lush, vibrant blooms and natural shapes of our Greenery Tropical Roller blinds can thrive in any home environment.

At these patio doors, we've chosen a Perfect Fit frame which simply clips onto the uPVC windows with the Roller blinds fitting snugly inside for a really sleek and streamlined look.
