Home interiors are now getting inspired by nature by using plants and animals in fabrics and ceramics. Here are some ideas that will help you apply this theme to your home.
Storage jars as a miniature cacti garden – Large jars are great to create your own small cacti garden. You just need to fill your jar with sand, plants, and different succulents.
Appliquéd insect cushion – Draw an insect silhouette with tailor’s chalk onto a piece of fabric. Try felts and wool fabrics, as they work well for appliqué. Then simply cut your shape and use machine embroidery to attach the shape to a cushion.
Butterfly pin board – To start this project, just cut butterflies from wrapping paper. Then choose a sheet of paper and stick it to a lightweight cardboard. Fold your butterflies in half and then pin them to your board.
Botanical papers and tags – Wrap your gifts by using detailed botanical and entomological motifs, cut out from wrapping paper. Make sure you choose rough recycled papers that give a rustic vibe.
Photographs – Choose a wallpaper with a collection of framed prints, butterfly and insect specimens and paste it in a small confined area, like a library.
Ceramics – Purchase small, medium to large ceramics of rabbits, squirrels, frogs and pigeons from homeware stores or flea markets. They are great to place on shelves or night stands, to soften your space.
