Inspired By Nature
Celebrated art director and stylist Hans Blomquist identifies the connection between our home environment and wellbeing in his new book, Inspired by Nature.
He starts off by discussing the essential components of a well-loved home. Nature is at the heart of his decorating philosophy, and contact with the natural world has been linked to reduced stress levels and improved mood. Still lifes and displays of treasured pieces are key to his look, and Hans explains how to style vignettes that will add visual interest as well as a connection to our past. In the second part of the book, Homes, Hans takes us on a tour of real-life homes that possess a sense of comfort, contentment and beauty and will inspire the reader to create a home that offers a refuge from the wider world as well as the perfect place to welcome family and friends.
