The latest color trend in interior design is taking a note from nature and we're seeing it come through in decorative details like wall decor and floor rugs to more permanent and prominent elements like lighting fixtures and paint colors. Fresh and clean is the central theme here, and earthy shades of greens, grays and tans take center stage while materials like faded wood and iron steal the spotlight in furniture and fixtures. Look closely and you'll notice that this trend borrows inspiration from earth, sky, water and plant life. Not only does the neutral color palette and nods to nature create a sentiment of peace and restoration, but it also aligns with the "less is more" minimalism movement that is becoming more and more popular.
Beyond the visual appeal that this color trend brings, studies have proven that bringing elements of nature indoors helps with stress reduction, creativity, and mental health. With benefits like that, you'll want to get started on implementing this trend into your home A.S.A.P. Look for earthy greens like sage and muted tones that come from weathered wood and iron details.
