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. After all, your space should be a reflection of yourself – and with Karndean Designflooring you can even tailor your floor to fit your style 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 the home; but moving beyond the literal interpretation of leaf prints in textiles and framed art and to more of a focus on organic colors, materials and finishes to give you the warmth and comfort you seek. The result is a casual-look environment with curated accent pieces.
What are some ways you can incorporate NaturaLuxe style into your home?
- 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 home 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 adds 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:
