Life in Kathmandu is the perfect example of what living in a concrete jungle means. We are surrounded by brick and concrete walls while the old lush green trees are being cut down and replaced by ugly rows of high rise buildings. The only trees one can see are those inside the old residential houses where our predecessors had planted several species besides those lining the roads. Today, being close to nature has become a luxury for people living in cities like Kathmandu. When we look at photos from the past of this old city, we see considerably more greenery than there is today. People take trips out of the valley merely to be with nature and experience some tranquility.

To counter this sad state of affairs people are making an effort to turn their residences as nature friendly as possible. Since people spend most of their time in their own homes, the interiors need to reflect this sentiment. Ambience Lifestyle, an interior décor store has creative ideas on how to make your interior nature friendly or adopt the ‘close to nature’ theme in place of bland white walls and dull concrete surfaces.

There are plenty of techniques and material to make the interior feel like a part of nature and that too at low maintenance costs, such as putting up easy to handle artificial grass on walls and floral nature themed wallpapers which are pleasing to the eye. And the best part is you don’t have to go to great lengths to maintain them like real plants. The materials used are fabrics made from jute and linen which are nature friendly. With their hectic lives with chaotic routines nobody has the time to take care of real plants. So people are happy with these nature friendly décor items that are perfectly suited for people with little time after a tiring day at the office and who want only to relax at the end of a long day.

Ambience lifestyle has interesting ideas like using wooden furniture made of different kinds of special wood that are water resistant and ideal for using outdoors, where they can withstand the elements.  To add more natural material, the use of stone to build walls and pavements gives a house with large spaces a natural setting. Curtains with floral designs, materials made of natural fiber, artificial plants, woolen rugs and paintings can not only brighten up your space but also bring natural vibes. Nature lovers will be delighted with the results of using such techniques that bring a sense of serenity and relaxation to their abode.

To anyone who spends a great deal of time at home, the interiors matter a lot. The interior of a house plays a significant role in determining the mood of people who live within. If the entire house is well designed and the interiors are soothing, coming home can be a pleasurable experience every time. The ‘close to nature’ theme can make a big difference in the lives of people who long for a relaxing ambience.
