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.

Square shapes and right angles are common in an air home. Accessories and art like mobiles, feathers and other air-inspired art can be incorporated into the design.
Energetic tone: Spare, clean, modern and clutter free.

Fire
The personality: Energetic and outgoing, fire people love spontaneity and creativity. They enjoy living life at a fast pace and are constantly on the move.
The Look: A fire influenced decorating theme will include a bold and vibrant look filled with color and energy. Look for jewel tones and all shades of red and purple. This house will feature dramatic art that catches the eye. Make a fire place or stove the focal point of a room and feature accessories that evoke fire.
Energetic tone: Confident, energetic, active and warm.

Water
The Personality: The water personality is gentle and intuitive. They value their relationships with others and enjoy time spent with family and friends.
The Look: The water look draws on a romantic and dreamy look, incorporating elements from the past. Colors include blue, green and purples. Natural elements such as shells can be incorporated into the art and accessories. Fountains, ponds and other water features can also be placed to accentuate the watery feeling of the home.
Energetic tone: Spiritual, imaginative, whimsical and gentle.
