Using Eucalyptus to Decorate Your Apartment

Scandinavian design has taken the design world by storm. And today, I’d like to show you how to follow the lead of those who seem to have mastered the art of brining the outside in. In Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, home design tends to nod towards an appreciation of nature and natural materials. It’s really simple, only requires two things, and makes a world of a difference.

Let’s walk through the entire decorating process!

Before the addition of eucalyptus

Here is a pretty standard-looking one bedroom apartment, with a common area that encompasses the kitchen, dining room, and living room. This apartment has definitely had some thought put into the decor already, and is free from clutter and mess. The space is simple and sweet, has a nice neutral color scheme of whites, blacks, and reds. The windows are large and let in a ton of light. While we think this space is already pretty good, it could be even better. Let’s take this one step further to create a space we can adore.

In this exact same space, we have upgraded the living room part of the apartment with baby blue eucalyptus branches. The floral arrangement is simple, eye-catching, and creates a bit more interest in a nice-decorated but overlooked corner. We love how the green contrasts with the neutral whites and tans. The branches also make the room feel more personal, inviting, and homey.

Let’s try a different spot for more impact. We added fresh silver dollar eucalyptus for a different feel. This arrangement packs more punch, since the table is more central in the room. We love how this changes the entire space to feel fresher!
