Embrace Wanderlust at Home with Earth Bound

By Gail Alcock, Product Director for Malmo™ LVT

With summer beckoning us to explore far-flung destinations, the Earth Bound trend presents an opportunity for homeowners to infuse their living spaces with a sense of wanderlust and adventure.

As one of the key interior design trends for 2023, Earth Bound draws inspiration from travel, escapism and a deep connection to nature. By incorporating warm earthy tones, textural materials, and handmade organic objects, this trend creates an ambience that resonates long after the holiday is over. While it can be prominently showcased in living rooms curated with interesting finds from abroad, Earth Bound has the versatility to inspire any room within the home.

Get the look

To truly embrace the Earth Bound aesthetic, every element of the room’s design should harmonise with the theme. Warm, earthy paint colours such as ochre, baked terracotta and sand bring the essence of nature indoors. Add in rugs and throws rich in colour, pattern and texture, exquisite wall tapestries and ornate, ethnic lanterns which give a warm, sunset glow even when unlit. Pieces that look to be one of a kind such as hand made ceramics and nik naks sourced from souks or local markets can be curated into the design, igniting memories of adventurous journeys. Incense and scented candles in woody aromas such as sandalwood or citrus scents, such as orange, lemon, and grapefruit, help to cultivate a warm, welcoming and relaxing ambience.

As the foundational canvas of any setting, flooring plays a vital role in creating an Earth Bound-inspired room. Opting for dark wood flooring with a characterful texture grounds the scheme for the rest of the design elements.

LVT blends form and function

When creating an Earth Bound-inspired space, Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring offers a compelling alternative to real wood combining aesthetics with functionality. Homeowners can effortlessly achieve the desired look and feel of natural wood, while enjoying numerous practical benefits.
