Tips on how to use a rainforest theme for your home

The lush green forests have a sense of calmness and serenity. They house ecosystems of nature that are not found anywhere else in the world. The peace that comes with the varied shades of green cannot be replicated but the shades can remind you of the place itself. How can you use the rainforest theme to make your home look better? Let us take a look at these tips to help you out.

Include wall paintings

A wall painting of leaves, flowers, foliage, trees, can look beautiful if done on a plain wall. Overlapping patterns of leaves can be used to create an accent wall. You can use the theme in its literal sense and get animals, waterfalls, and other typical rainforest elements painted on your wall. If you are looking for an immersive experience, you can get the ceiling painted as well. In addition to that, you can also use shades of the flowers, fruits, patterns of the animals found in the rainforest for a dramatic effect. You can also paint shapes on walls using a stencil.

The abstract colours

If you are looking to add a dramatic flair to the room, then you can choose a room colour that loosely interprets the kind of shades that are found in the wild. Right from the brown of the soil to the clear blue sky. These colours can give you the feeling of being enveloped in nature’s lap without the actual shapes and drawings. You can add geometric patterns to make things interesting. Thin lines of gold and silver add a touch of sunshine to the rainforest too.

The furniture

If you are going for a rainforest theme in your home, then adding furniture of metal or furniture that depicts the modern and contemporary designs may be a bad idea and look like clashing styles. Instead of that, you can add wooden furniture, or wicker furniture to uphold the theme. Including cotton, jute, and other natural textures in upholstery and on walls adds a natural touch and blends in perfectly with the theme in mind.

The colour scheme throughout the house

The rainforest colour scheme generally includes lots of brown and green, but don’t forget to add sparks of red, purple, yellow, and other bright colours you might come across because of flowers, fruits, leaves, and so on. Using the same colour on all walls makes the space seem smaller and looks boring too. You can consider using colours in the same order that you find them in the wild. The ceiling can be blue, the walls brown and green.

Decorative items that can enhance the impact of the theme

If you like rainforests, then you definitely like plants too! Show off your plant babies in living areas, bedrooms, and other spaces wherever you can fit your potted plants. Keep a display of all your indoor plants and vines instead of a showcase. Use a bookshelf to display your succulents and replace the conventional centerpieces on the coffee table and dining table with small potted plants.

If you are a nature-lover then preserving nature is equally important. You can make use of sustainable items to protect the environment. The theme of your home can reflect in the practices you use as well.
