Start with your coffee table and search for a table that is made of natural material like stone. Stone coffee tables look so stylish, natural and you will find a verity of stone types to choose from, like granite, marble and limestone. What is also good about the stone tables is that they can match most of the different designs like modern, traditional and even rustic. They also come in both dark and light color shades to match any living room’s designs, for example you will find stone tables in black, beige, white, etc.
Stones can also be part of your living room in other different ways, wondering how? It’s so simple, choose any empty wall of your living room and cover it with any stone type or color you prefer, if you don’t have an empty wall in your living room, that is okay you can either use the wall that is behind your TV unit or you can design a stone wall with a built in fireplace; one wall with two benefits. Just don’t forget to add some built in lighting like small spot lights to enhance the beauty of your stone wall.
Adding nature elements to your living room can be done with many other ideas like putting green plants. You can use natural plants or you can use artificial ones, both will add that green fresh look to your living room and give you that amazing warm feeling. To double the effect, try to put the green plant next to your living room window, noting could be more beautiful than the reflection of the sunrays on a green plant, right?
Adding green plants to your living room is such a place saving idea, because they occupy few inches and guess what else? You will even find some plants types that can be hanged on the wall, which means no space problem at all. They are so easy to maintain as well, all what you need to consider is to place them in places that receive enough lighting.
Search for 3D wall painting or wall poster with scenes of nature like trees, rivers, waterfalls or forests and stick them or hang it on any empty wall in your living room, the 3D drawings look so real and they can turn the entire ambience of your living room in an amazing way.
Putting a water fountain is another amazing idea that you can use to enhance the nature part in your living room. You will find thousands of electric water fountains with different designs, shapes, sizes and styles to choose from. The soothing water sound that they make can bring you indescribable feelings of relaxation and comfort.
Choosing the proper place to put your water fountain in your living room will be according to the size of the fountain you chose. For example, if you picked a small fountain, then putting it on a tall side table or a marble pillar sounds more than perfect and if you chose a large one, then you can put it on the floor between two green plants or in a side corner.
If you have enough space in your living room, you can replace the water fountain with free standing water fountain with built in lighting. They also come in different shapes and sizes, but they may need bigger space than the other water fountains mentioned above. The floor free standing fountains may be more fitting with modern designs, so if you have a classic or rustic living room, it may not be the right choice to make.
Add some warm feelings by using some fire symbols like candles and fireplaces. The fire elements will enhance the nature atmosphere in your living room and they will also keep you warm and cozy. You can also use some small decorative ideas like a jar full of seashells, sand watch, vase full of refreshing flowers or a star fish. Look for a mirror that has a frame made of natural elements like seashells or plastic flowers and hang it above the fireplace; simple and easy, right?
You should also consider the colors of the walls, when you design your living room if you want to achieve the ambience of nature successfully. In this regard, you will need to choose colors that have something to do with nature like, blue, yellow and green. Designing a large window that allows enough natural light to fill your living room is a main part that you need to consider when you design your living room.
The ideas are countless; you just need to choose the ones that fit your living room design and most importantly to choose what fits the space of your living room. I know that all the ideas that symbolize nature are amazing, but if you have a small living room, you will need to be so selective and choose only the pieces that fit the space you have.
