The Elements of Nature ... and Your Home
Whether you’ve just moved in to a new house or are looking to re-decorate an existing one, it can be hard to know how to create the home of your dreams.

Sometimes returning to the basics can help you gain clarity and get focused on exactly what is right for you. The elements of nature -- Earth, Air, Fire, Water -- can provide a wonderful way to begin your decorating efforts from a place of simplicity rather than confusion.

Read through the elemental descriptions below to see which one matches your personality best, and use the suggestions to implement the elements into your decorating campaign. You may choose to devote a room to each element or decorate your entire house according to one particular elemental signature -- whatever feels, well, natural!


Earth
The Personality: Earth people value continuity, stability and comfort. This personality has a strong connection to traditions and appreciates routine and regularity in their lives.
The Look: An earth decorating scheme will incorporate plenty of wood, stone and other natural elements into furnishings and building materials. Earth tones like brown, green, beige and yellow can be used for paint and accessories. Rounded shapes and soft edges will complete an earth influenced home. Sculptures and art that incorporate the female figure or animals complement the earth look.
Energetic tone: Calm, cozy, grounded, and centered.

Water
