Most people know that there are many health benefits of being in the great outdoors; somehow, being out amongst the trees, beautiful blue skies, and other elements of nature reduces stress and just make us feel better. What if you could bring a little bit of nature indoors in your luxury custom Flower Mound home? If you’re thinking of building and love the outdoors, we have a few ideas to help you bring the outdoors in.
Incorporate live foliage plants into your decorating scheme. Plants not only look beautiful and add an element of the outdoors, they improve indoor air quality.
Think about the size and placement of windows. If you are building a home, is there a particularly great view on one side of the house? Do you love the morning sun, or have rooms you would love to brighten up with natural light? Large, strategically placed windows can frame a gorgeous outdoor view, or let the morning sunlight stream into your living spaces.
Consider soothing, natural colors. Tans, browns, and other neutral colors make for a clean background for plants and greenery, while various shades of blue and green are reminiscent of trees, plants, the oceans, and other natural elements. If you think you lack the creativity or talent to develop a “natural” color scheme, have a professional help you.
Incorporate natural materials into the design of your home. Stone, unpainted wood, and natural fibers in furnishings, window treatments, and other areas of your home lend to the “outdoorsy” feeling. Natural materials also help create an atmosphere of tranquility.
