Here at Beth Haley Design, we always keep sustainability in mind and celebrate a commitment to eco-friendly design. When it comes to sustainable interior design, natural and reclaimed materials are go-to design elements. We recommend incorporating natural materials and embracing an indoor-outdoor connection with large windows and doors that bring in natural light to create a happy and healthy home. Adding materials with texture creates warm and inviting interiors, and the final look can range from rustic to midcentury modern. Homeowners seeking a more natural look for their interiors will be inspired by these Beth Haley Design projects that combine a smart and striking approach to sustainable interior design. In these homes, we incorporated natural materials chosen for their durability, sustainability, and beauty. Take a look!
A Small, Smartly Designed Kitchen
Natural wood materials live at the center of this kitchen design that is simple and clean. Wood cabinets run from the floor to the ceiling and make a statement in the space. The design team chose a simple black-white-and-grey color palette to complement the wood tones without overpowering them. Stools, an island, and open shelves also feature a wood finish, which we love.
Sustainable Interior Design Meets Luxury
Again, natural materials are the star of the show in this bathroom renovation. Wood cabinetry and doors surround the vanity, and a white countertop attracts the eye. White and wood make a great pair, and gold accents elevate the design by giving it a touch of glamor and elegance. Can you imagine a better space to start your day?
A Traditional Approach to Natural Materials
Natural materials belong on the floor, walls, and furniture — here, wood on the floors and island stand in contrast to the all-white design. If you aren’t ready to commit to a wood-filled space, start small. Wooden accents might be all you need to create balance and texture in your design. Sustainable interiors design doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
Sustainable Interior Design in the Bathroom
Committing to natural materials doesn’t limit you to one design style. Wood accents are common features in rustic and farmhouse designs, and they feel right at home in midcentury modern and contemporary interiors. Wood comes in a wide range of finishes, styles, and colors so that you can find the best fit for you and your space. We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to interior design, and neither should you!
Natural Materials Meet Color
Because wood is a neutral, you can pair it with any color. Of course, it works well with white, but it also stands up to greens, blues, and even orange. This green kitchen is a picture-perfect example of sustainable interior design.
When Wood is a Work of Art
The beautiful detailing on these wood cabinets is eye-catching! The stain, grain pattern , and subtle texture are faultless in this minimal space. Incorporating small décor pieces is an easy way to add color, and you can easily rearrange them to update the space over time.
Hopefully, these lovely spaces helped you dream of all the ways to add natural materials and practice sustainable interior design. Need a hand in selecting the right type and style of materials for your space? Let us help!
