Nature Is Home: How to Curate an Earthy Home Decor Aesthetic
Your home is a place of comfort and solace. Much like nature - it’s the place to restore, connect with loved ones, and find peace. But how exactly can you embrace a nature-aesthetic through your home decor? 🌿
From earth tones to natural textures to greenery - there are so many ways to bring nature into your home while creating a welcoming, warm, and stylish atmosphere. Keep reading for a breakdown of earth colors and natural textures, along with simple tips to consider when selecting materials and must-have home decor essentials.
What are earthy colors & textures?
We think of earth tones as colors commonly seen in nature, such as shades of green, blue, and brown. They’re generally more muted colors that set a peaceful and calming mood, which is why they’re perfect for the home. We also love that earth tones are versatile when it comes to pairing them with furniture, rugs, and other home decor pieces.
Earth tone colors:
- Greens: sage, olive, sea green
- Blues: sky blue, navy, azure
- Browns: khaki, coffee, terracotta, rust, turmeric, oak
Greys: slate, light grey, stone
Natural textures & materials:
- Woven materials (seagrass, sisal, rattan, etc)
Tips to incorporate a nature-aesthetic in each room of your home
Layering textures - such as a waffle weave blanket with a wicker chair (seen above) - is a playful way to experiment with different materials in your home.
Embrace Imperfections & Irregular Shapes
Just like there are so many beautiful imperfections and quirks in natural materials - embrace unique shapes and curves in your home.
Opt for Sustainable & Fair Trade Materials
Choose sustainable and fair trade materials over plastics and polyester. We’re so proud to source sustainable and fair trade materials for all of our goods at Amante. They make our items the special pieces we’re honored to share.
Use Earth Tones
Colors set a mood. By leaning towards greens, browns, and blues - you’ll curate a welcoming, nature-aesthetic in your home. This applies to every room - bathroom, laundry room, bedrooms, and more!

Bring nature into your home (literally) with plants. Whether you love flowers, succulents, air plants, or all of the above, no matter what you choose, they’ll bring immediate life and color to your space.
