You have so many options for decorating your home. You might prefer a more modern look, with plenty of bright colors and geometric patterns, or you might prefer a cozier, more cottage-like appearance. Regardless of your decorating preferences, however, there is a decor element you should strongly consider including: artwork that depicts nature. Here are some benefits of displaying paintings, sculptures, and even lithographs that depict nature.
1. It coordinates with everything.
The colors depicted in nature scenes match almost any color scheme. Greens, browns, blues, and shades of gray will look nice with most any color of home. If you decide to change the colors of your walls in the future, your natural paintings will still look right at home. They can even serve to pull in an extra color, like green, that is not found elsewhere in your decor. This adds a hint of diversity without making your look like non-cohesive.
2. Nature makes you feel relaxed.
Have you ever noticed that after spending time outside, you feel more relaxed and at-ease? Nature has a powerful effect on the human psyche—it prompts your brain to release serotonin, a hormone that promotes positive moods and a good outlook. With your busy lifestyle, you probably don't get to spend as much time out in nature as you'd like. Artwork that displays a nature scene can have a similar effect, improving your mood and helping you to feel more relaxed at home. When you're more relaxed, you're better able to enjoy your life and make smart decisions.
3. Everyone likes nature scenes.
Some types of art are rather polarizing. For instance, some people love abstract art, and others find it silly. Natural art appeals to a broader audience. Surely, some love it more than others -- but nobody will find it particularly off-putting or offensive. Your guests will enjoy your decor. (Nature artwork is a great choice for guest rooms and living rooms where you entertain friends and family members.)
4. Nature scenes bring interesting textures to your home.
Some artwork is flat and sleek. Modern art is a good example—the geometric patterns tend to be smooth and simple. These designs have their place, but if you exclusively use "smooth" artwork, your room will feel a bit flat. With leaves, waterfalls, and other scenes, nature artwork tends to have more texture, so it can make your space feel more balanced.
