Living in a concrete jungle can make you feel removed from nature - and not everyone can make time for regular escapes - but you can bring the natural world in to refresh your home, even in the midst of the city. “Besides bringing trees and plants indoors, we suggest three ways that you can use natural materials and a natural palette to add a distinctive character to interiors,” shares Tracy Kwan, Lane Crawford’s Director of Lifestyle.
Introduce wooden elements
Wooden objects have a timeless, effortless appeal, and it’s easy to see why - the material’s natural grain and warm colour draws you in immediately. Whether in rustic, chunky side and dining tables and dining tables by Alcarol, or the upcoming geometric tables from Heerenhuis Manufactuur, and nature-inspired works by Lys Import, the tactile textural element elevates the ambience from the typical hard-edged apartment to a cosy space that will welcome you and your guests every time you walk in.
Anchor your spaces with stone
This ancient material presents a beautiful array of natural colours and textures. From chunky mirror bases to the healing amethyst and quartz objects by Lane Crawford’s global exclusive Stoned Crystals, even the smallest pieces add strong accents to an interior’s ambience. And the material is versatile, from singing bowls to crystal potpourri - not only an eye-catching decorative touch but also a multi-sensory experience.
Be inspired by a natural palette
What would a natural feel be without an earthy, muted palette? Soft tones complement the tactile textures of Lane Crawford’s global exclusive woven baby alpaca throws and Frette’s luxurious couture bed linen. Complement them with the subtle colours and organic shapes of ceramics by FOS.
