4 wall treatments to bring your home back to nature

14 Aug 2019

Designers and decorators have looked to Mother Nature for interior inspiration for just as long as interiors have existed. However, sometimes you might be looking to create a space that includes elements of the natural world without it feeling like it’s gone a little too deep into the woods.

For an elevated, sophisticated space that still has a natural vibe, look to one of these feature wall treatments paired with a fashionable colour palette of Resene paints and wood stains.

A full wall mural in Resene Wallpaper Collection P013-VD4 adds plenty of visual texture while working as a neutral backdrop for you to build a colour palette upon. Try it in an open-plan space with adjacent walls painted Resene Mother Nature, a floor in Resene Half Foggy Grey, trims in Resene Sea Fog, then bring in furniture, such as a chair, with industrial details painted Resene Raging Bull and a vase in Resene Double Ash.

For a blissful bathroom, go for a lush wall mural like Resene Wallpaper Collection P333-VD4 with floors stained with Resene Colorwood Matai, surrounding walls and trims in Resene Eighth Bison Hide, an accent wall and a chair in Resene Half Bison Hide and accessories in Resene New Leaf and Resene Permanent Green.

Top tip: Resene has a huge range of wallpaper designs which are regularly refreshed. Take a trip to your local Resene ColorShop to view their current sample books.

Resene Wallpaper Collection FJ100204 features a bark-like pattern similar to that of a gum tree, which lends itself well to earthy taupes, mushroom greys and purple-blues.

Try it with adjacent walls in Resene Eighth Stonewashed, floors in Resene Coffee Break, minimalist furniture including a desk in Resene Half Dusted Blue, a bedside table in Resene Grey Area, lamps and a headboard in Resene Quarter Bokara Grey with just a couple touches of Resene Time After Time through small accessories.

Resene Wallpaper Collection FD23803 would look great as a statement wall in a contemporary farmhouse style bathroom alongside walls, trims and ceilings Resene Eighth Pearl Lusta, timber floors in Resene Colorwood Tiri, a vanity in Resene Sambuca, light fixtures in Resene Dark Web and a ladder-style towel rack in Resene Sixth Sense for a touch of colour.
