It's obvious why spending time in nature is so calming and refreshing — the colors, the scents, the sounds. And by incorporating these elements into your home, it can actually improve your overall happiness.
Filling your home with plants or flowers might seem like an obvious first step. But here are a few other ways you can achieve an outdoorsy feel:
- Choose window coverings that optimize your view. Natural light is uplifting and it’s good for your plants. And when you can, open your windows to bring in the fresh air.
- Incorporate natural objects. When you’re outside and something catches your eye, bring it home. Use rocks as bookends or add a pinecone to your flower arrangement.
