Trend Report: NaturaLuxe

Posted on the 6/22/2022 by Karndean Designflooring

Interior style today focuses on selecting elements from a variety of styles, taking what resonates most with you, and blending these elements together to create your own distinct style. With Karndean Designflooring you can even tailor the floor design to fit individual project preferences.

One popular way we’re seeing a blend of multiple styles is through fusing natural elements with new age amenities – what we call NaturaLuxe. We’ve seen the term biophilia for several years now and this is a progression of that idea of bringing nature into commercial spaces; but moving beyond the literal interpretation of leaf prints in textiles and framed art to more of a focus on organic colors, materials and finishes to give end users the warmth and comfort they seek. The result is a casual-look environment with curated accent pieces.


What are some ways you can incorporate NaturaLuxe style into your project?

  • Look for vintage, antique and handcrafted furnishings and décor for your home/projects. Play with scale and composition to breathe new life into traditional patterns and create different energy levels in the space. Combine these items with more modern pieces.
  • Mix rustic woods with modern metals to add some industrial luxury.
  • Update your previous color palette of crisp whites and steely grays as neutrals with taupe, rust and other earth tones, as this trend subtly shifts color in a warmer direction. 


So how can you bring the NaturaLuxe look into your projects through flooring specifically?

  • Explore more tactile flooring – woods and stones with textures derived from nature
  • Natural-toned woods with a hint of warmth
  • Rustic appeal/weathering add vintage appeal
  • Look to slate or concrete visuals for an industrial influence
  • Focus on floors and textures that convey warmth and luminosity or airiness

Here are some looks within the Karndean Designflooring portfolio that would fit this trend:
