Ideas for Decorating Your Mountain Home
With so many home décor elements to consider when decorating your mountain home, it can be tough to know where to start. In general, opting for design strategies that increase your home’s biophilic design will help to enhance its connection to nature. What is biophilic design you ask?
Biophilic design is a home décor concept that revolves around human beings’ intrinsic biological need to connect with nature. It aims to increase exposure to direct natural elements such as air, plant life, water and natural lighting as well as increase indirect cues of nature. Indirect cues can include natural colors, images of nature, etc. Here are some great tips to get you started.
1. Frame That Mountain View
If you live in a beautiful geographic location with lush mountain views, you might consider finding an art piece portraying your local area. Finding the right pictures or art pieces to hang can be one of the most complex aspects of home design, as there are essentially infinite images to choose from. A tasteful depiction of the beauty that surrounds your home can be a charming way of appreciating the surrounding blessings. It’s minimalist, aesthetically pleasing and harmonious with your environment.

3. Increasing Comfort in Your Mountain Home
4. Make Use of the Natural Light
Mountain homes often have superb natural lighting in some rooms. In rooms with large windows and great light exposure, you may wish to contribute to the incandescence by using light wallpaper, furniture covers and avoiding dark tones.
5. Increasing Natural Sentiment
Mountain homes often have an intrinsic natural feel about them. Dark woods, plants, natural images, and the use of dark forest greens can greatly amplify the feeling of being in nature. Indoor plants are a great way to increase your direct exposure to natural elements, while choosing natural colors can contribute to that natural sentiment.
