7 Design Tips You Need to Know If You Want An All White Bedroom

bedroom

We have three words for you: all-white bedroom. We’re guessing that thought either has you swooning or cringing. Either way, there’s no denying that all-white rooms are elegant and serene spaces that exude a sense of calm.

And when it comes to bedrooms, an all-white space might be a dream design for some, and it’s certainly a nightmare for others! If you’re in the “yes please” camp, read on to see what our designers have to say about all white bedrooms and get the scoop on their best tips for designing this intimate and welcoming space.

Textures, Textures, Textures

Textures are key to creating an all-white bedroom design that doesn’t look washed out and boring. Pieces like a woven rug, braided pillows, and rattan or wicker decor can help to create a dynamic, layered design. Even if all the pieces are white, layering textures in your all-white bedroom helps to bring the look to life and keeps it from falling flat.

white bedroomMix Up Your Materials

And while we’re talking about textures, an easy way to ensure you have lots of them in your space is to choose pieces made of a mix of materials. Instead of using just one or two basics, try incorporating materials like marble, wood, stone, ceramics, linens… the sky’s the limit when it comes to all-white bedroom designs.

You can even mix in natural materials like rattan and jute for an additional pop! These aren’t technically white, but as long as you stick with neutral colors, they won’t feel out of place in your all-white bedroom.

bedroomThink about Wood Tones

Wood tones are also a fantastic addition to an all-white bedroom. Our only rule here is to pick a lane for your woods and keep the tones, be they light, natural, or dark, consistent.

Our vote? Natural or dark wood accents because they provide a lovely pop of warmth and contrast that all-white rooms usually lack. On the flip side, washed-out or blonde woods can fall flat or get lost in an all-white bedroom. But no matter which tone you pick, having wood in your space is a great way to add warmth, natural texture, and contrast to your bedroom.

Layering textiles, such as rugs, pillows, curtains, etc. helps add depth, texture, and lots of contrast. Plus, lots of layers will help instill a cozy note to your white bedroom and make your space feel more dynamic and well-thought-out.

Greenery adds a welcome pop of color to an all-white bedroom without overpowering the look. A floor plant, hanging plant, or small succulent on your nightstand will also add texture and dimension to your space without interrupting the serenity. Plus, we all know that plants just make you happy! All in all, there is a lovely addition to a bedroom sanctuary, no matter your color scheme.

Play with Fun Shapes

When you don’t have color, you have to find other creative ways to add visual intrigue to your space. One of our favorite ways to do this is to consider the forms of your furniture and decor. Playful and funky shapes will help spice up the look of an all-white bedroom. Think round forms, square forms, or even squiggles! Wall art, poufs, and patterned benches are also easy ways to add a little fun and flair.

white bedroomAdd Contrast Through Your Wall Color

Here’s a great little secret – it’s okay for your white bedroom not to have white walls! There are plenty of off-white and neutral shades that still create the look of an all-white bedroom design without being so stark and harsh. A shade of cream, off-white, or light grey can really help warm-up, cool down, or add contrast to your room while still maintaining the clean, crisp and calming look of an all-white bedroom.

Stress-Free Hosting: 7 Things Every Great Guest Room Needs

guest room essentialsHosting season never seems to end! And with Fall gearing up, Thanksgiving and hungry guests are just around the corner. Whether you’re hosting an intimate get together or the whole family, being the host with the most extra bedrooms is no easy feat.

But fret not, the secret to stress-free hosting isn’t skipping town for the weekend, it’s a well-prepped guest room that’s sure to impress.

Since you probably already are familiar with the guest room basics like a bed frame, comfy mattress, and clean linens, here are 7 of our favorite ways to whip your guest room into shape, all before your in-laws arrive.

1. Set Up a Place to Unpack

After they lug their suitcase up the stairs, your guests will appreciate having a place to park their luggage and unpack.

Try placing a bench or a pair of poufs at the foot of the bed. This also doubles as a great place for them to take shoes off or get ready for the day.

fall guest room

2. Keep Guests Feeling Cozy

No matter the season, give your guests the hotel treatment by readying your guest room with a basket stocked with extra linens, pillows, and blankets.

Think cozy cashmere throws, cable-knit blankets, and fluffy pillows for winter, or linen sheets and cotton throws for the warmer seasons.

3. Dress to Impress

Sometimes it’s those finishing touches that truly round out the guest room ambiance.

A full-length mirror is just the accent piece that brings a luxe look and feel to the space. Place one against a wall for your guests to use while they get dressed for breakfast or dinner.

4. Start a Conversation With Art

Tell your story to visitors through the art and objects you display in your home.

While this might not seem like an essential, showcasing unique art and accessories is a great way to make your guests’ stay more memorable.

Not sure what to pick? Think about choosing pieces that will spark a conversation – photographs from your trip to Iceland? Perfect. A woven plate that looks better on the wall than in the kitchen? Yes please!

5. Make Storage Easy

Set your guests up for success with a handy place to stash clothes, toiletries, and even surprise hostess gifts (wishful thinking?).

A stylish dresser and pair of nightstands is a great place to start! Also consider pulling in a woven hamper for your guests to easily toss used towels and linens. This simple addition majorly ups the hospitality factor.

6. Ensure Ample Lighting

Place a pair of reading lamps on the nightstands, but don’t forget to think about lighting for the rest of your guest room as well.

Sconces above a dresser or on the wall opposite the bed can be a light-touch way to add more sources of illumination, while a floor lamp by a window will cast a warm glow that can help cozy up the ambiance for your guests.

7. Make Room for Personal Space

Give your guests a place to relax and unwind with a cozy reading nook or desk area. This is a great, no-pressure way for them (and you) to enjoy some personal space during their visit.

Add a bookcase with old and new tomes for guests to peruse, and even include a tray stocked full of goodies like coffee, tea, and snacks.

It’s these finishing elements that can truly make a space feel homey for visitors.

5 Designer-Approved Ways to Design a Red Bedroom

red bedding

Red is a daring and vivacious color that can instantly transform your bedroom. However, the color has long been known to evoke aggression, passion and energy that, in overwhelming amounts, can make your room feel really intense and hard to relax in. If you’re thinking up red bedroom ideas, it’s important to use it in a way that doesn’t interfere with your ability to chill out and retreat in your personal sanctuary. Here are our best tips for red bedroom design – try one or multiple in your red bedroom!

red headboard1. Ground Your Room With a Red Bed Frame

A plush red bed frame is a perfect way to incorporate a vibrant red into your bedroom. It will make a bold statement without overwhelming the space. And if you want extra flair, you can kick it up a notch with a few more red accents around the room.

Stylist Tip: Cool off your red bed frame with blue accents. This classic color combo will steer your red bedroom away from aggressive and into more balance.

For the extra daring designer, a red wall color might be just the dramatic look you’re after. But it’s important to choose the right hue! We opted for a shade of clay red, which still achieves the bold look you want but feels sophisticated at the same time. A more muted red hue like this also pairs better with other colors in the space, unlike a super flashy firetruck red.

red bedding3. Add Pops of Red with Bedding and Pillows

Red bedding and pillows are an easy, low-cost way to incorporate red. The patterned duvet here adds a pop of red but doesn’t feel too bold or become the only thing your eye can see in the space. And the red pillows help bring the look together with added layers of coziness.

red prints4. Sprinkle in Red Decor

You don’t need to go overboard on red to infuse your bedroom with the brilliance and energy of the color. Try adding a few pops of red with your lamps, art, and a bench. That way the room feels balanced but not overwhelming. You can always flex up or down later by adding more or swapping out.

Another easy way to incorporate a bold red touch is to add a red rug. More than a furniture piece or room decor, this really grounds your room in the color red. And a traditional pattern feels sophisticated and instantly warms up any space. And unlike red walls, you can easily move the rug to another room later if you decide the red bedroom look is no longer your cup of tea!

6 Reasons Your Bedroom Needs a Rug

bedroom

Pretty much any room in your home can benefit from a rug, but they are especially nice in a bedroom. Your bedroom is the most intimate, cozy room in the house, after all! Bedroom rug ideas take many forms to be it as wall-to-wall coverings, layered on top of carpet, or large area rugs, and they can instantly add excitement to an otherwise simple space. That’s why the list of basic bedroom essentials pretty much always includes a bed, dresser, nightstand, and a rug!

In case you’re not totally sold on the idea yet, here are 6 reasons why your bedroom needs a rug.

bedroom with nightstand1. They Keep Your Feet Cozy

It’s no secret that carpeted floors are a lot softer than hardwood or tile – not to mention more comfortable to walk and stand on. Rugs feel warm and cozy on your feet and the softness gives your floors the flexibility to absorb the weight of your footsteps. This makes for a gentler surface to tip-top across with bare feet. Plus, we can all agree that it’s much more pleasant to step out of bed onto something plush instead of hardwood.

2. They Reduce Noise

Another main benefit of a rug is that it will significantly dampen the noise in your space. It’s quieter inside your house without the sounds of footsteps clicking back and forth across the bedroom and it also makes your room less echoey. Hard surfaces don’t absorb sound in the same way that carpet does, so you’ll notice the volume in your bedroom will be softer. Plus, those noisy neighbors downstairs won’t sound as loud when you’re trying to snooze.

3. They Add Personality

Maybe the most obvious reason why you need a rug in your bedroom is to show off your style! A rug adds color, pattern, and texture to a space to give it a more polished and personal look. It’s also a super-easy way to refresh your space without breaking the bank! A new rug can totally change the look and feel of your room in a flash.

 

bedroom

4. They Help Define the Space

You can use bedroom rugs to define or separate your space. This is especially useful in studio apartments where you might want the bedroom section to feel separate from your living area. And if your bedroom is on the larger side, a rug under the bed can help “zone” and define the space. If you already have carpet, this can also be a great way to add contrast and create further definition between particular areas.

5. They Protect Your Floors

If you have beautiful floors it might seem counterintuitive to cover them up with a rug. But, as you can see, there are lots of reasons why a bedroom needs a rug and you can rest assured knowing that it is actually helping to keep your floors safe and scuff-free! A bedroom rug is the easiest way to protect floors, especially in high-traffic areas, from scratches and scuffs.

 

bedroom

6. They Tie the Room Together

A rug is absolutely one of our bedroom must-haves because, without it, a room can look unfinished. If you’ve ever walked into a bedroom with bare floors, you know the feeling. It can appear stark and scattered, as though the furniture is floating in the room. A rug is a perfect one-step formula for making any bedroom (or any room, really) look pulled together and calm, perfect for getting a good night’s sleep.

Zen Out: 6 Ways To Create a Calming Home

zen home designFor many Modsy customers, a zen home design with minimal furnishings, colors, and objects is the ultimate modern haven. Rooms that feel serene at every turn; calming hues that soothe the senses; and simple, streamlined furniture that play up the ‘less is more’ aesthetic. All of these elements come together for a home that inspires rest and relaxation from the moment you step inside.

But even though the look is minimal, sometimes finding the right pieces to get this look at home can be a challenge. So for some quick inspiration and guidance, we’re breaking down the zen home look here to help you build a calm, quiet retreat with style to boot.

Get Comfy With Clean Lines

A calm home is a comfortable home. So when it comes to furniture, choose pieces that have simple forms but are big on comfort. A large sectional with clean lines is a great foundation for the living room, while a sleek sofa works perfectly in a smaller space. Carry this approach over to minimalist ottomans and tables as well!

zen living room ideasOpt For a Soothing Palette

Neutrals, pastels, and light, warm tones all have a way of instilling calm in a home, so lean into those shades and explore the entire spectrum. Think foggy grays with seafoam green, lavender with sherbert orange, and light wood tones with off-white upholstery. Keeping to soft, dreamy hues will create a soothing vibe throughout.

Minimize Clutter

A cluttered space is the antithesis of calm. And a zen home is all about stripping things away and being thoughtful about what you do bring into your space. You don’t have to Marie Kondo your rooms, but try to edit down your belongings and furnishings. Or invest in hidden storage pieces to limit the number of things you have on display.

Simplify Your Styling

This goes hand-in-hand with banishing clutter. With the objects and furnishings that you do keep and showcase, try not to over-style. That means displaying only a few select objects on tables and shelving, adding just a few pillows to your sofa, and not overcrowding your walls with art. It’s a minimalist approach that will create breathing room within your spaces.

Invite Greenery Inside

Plants inspire calm and happiness, and rooms with greenery can also add a bit of life to your spaces. We love using plants and greenery as a way to add color to minimalist spaces, not to mention they are natural air purifiers. Try bringing in a few tall plants to liven up empty corners.

zen bedroom ideasLet In Lots Of Natural Light

A dark, cave-like interior doesn’t exactly inspire a zen feel. If you have big windows, skip the heavy drapes or opt for sheers to let in lots of natural light. Don’t have a ton of windows? Spread some dim lighting throughout your rooms. We like the three-tier approach: A lamp on a table or console, a floor lamp in a corner, and sconces on your walls. Or, layer lots of candlelight, which always lend a sense of calm to spaces.

Take Your Bedroom to the Next Level with These 5 Blue Bedroom Ideas

When it comes to using blue in your home, it’s possible that no room is more well-suited than the bedroom. Blue is soothing, serene, and the perfect backdrop for the most restful, intimate room in your home. It’s no wonder then, that blue bedroom designs are one of our most requested rooms. Out of all the possibilities for blue bedroom designs, our stylists have a few they like best. Take a peek at our 5 favorite blue bedroom ideas!

charcoal blue bedroom ideas1. Dark Blue Bedroom Ideas

Nothing is as calming as a dark blue bedroom balanced out with soft neutral furniture and decor. The whitewashed woods, upholstered furniture, natural materials, and subtle patterns make the space warm and inviting, just like a bedroom should feel.

The Hue

We chose Charcoal Blue by Sherwin Williams for our cozy bedroom. The hue delivers a serene vibe that is perfect for the room where you want to wind down at the end of the day.

This is Perfect if…

You love neutrals but don’t want a space that’s all white. The rustic contemporary vibe is serene and peaceful but also super stylish. And if you want to create more of a modern farmhouse look, just add a few industrial light features to add an extra pop of contrast.

navy blue bedroom ideas2. Bold Blue Bedroom Ideas

To ensure your blue bedroom doesn’t start to feel too monotone (unless that’s the vibe you’re after) be sure to introduce some complementary colors. The opposite of blue on the color wheel is orange, so for this bedroom, we incorporated subtle pops of orange in the art, accent furniture, and decor.

But instead of an aggressive traffic cone orange, we opted for more natural oranges, like terracotta, rust and even saffron, helps to keep the look feeling calm and soothing – aka perfect for a bedroom.

The Hue

This pure, bold Downpour Blue color by Benjamin Moore is the perfect backdrop for a bold, eclectic look.

This is Perfect if…

You’re looking for a blue bedroom that’s still a bit bold and eclectic. This idea also plays with natural woods, which have a warmth that nicely compliments the orange hues. The neutrals and natural textures like velvet and ceramic also tone down the bold and create a warm and welcoming vibe, perfect for letting yourself unwind and relax.

This is one of our favorite blue bedroom ideas to create an inspiring and bright vibe that will energize you in the morning and soothe you to sleep at night. Full of natural textures, this blue bedroom has a beach house vibe that also feels slightly eclectic.

The Hue

We chose the light blue paint, Frozen Canal, by Benjamin Moore. It evokes the soothing waters of the sea and is the perfect, cheery complement to natural materials like linen, jute, and rattan.

This is Perfect if…

You love beachy vibes and a preppy-meets-eclectic style! Add a bit more contrast with a few dark blue pillows or decorative accents to give the look more depth.

Nothing feels more regal than a deep, velvety blue wall color paired with gold accents. Dark walls create calm and comfort and the white and gold accents pop against the cobalt blue backdrop. The look perfectly balances warm and cool notes.

Be sure to incorporate a few blue accents into the space to tie the wall color in with the rest of the design. We used an end-of-the-bed bench and blue accent pillow to do the trick. Use symmetry to add to the polished, refined look but keep it not so matchy-matchy by varying decor on each side.

The Hue

Using this Loyal Blue color by Sherwin-Williams as the focal point for this blue bedroom idea offers a more sophisticated, formal take on the bedroom.

This is Perfect if…

You love a look that’s elegant and sophisticated but also retains warmth.

teal blue bedroom ideas5. Teal Blue Bedroom Ideas

This look is not for the faint of heart but can instantly turn a bedroom into a cozy retreat. Teal walls set the stage for a bold, eclectic look and then you can balance out the green notes with natural wood furniture.

Feeling extra bold? Add an over-dyed red rug. This helps anchor space and offers a lovely pop of color that compliments the green tone in the walls.

The Hue

We chose Dark Teal by Benjamin Moore to make a bold statement in our teal blue bedroom.

This is Perfect if…

You love a design with a mid-century modern style. This look is the perfect counterpart to the teal color because natural woods are a key element of the design style. It’s also perfect if you love a bold and trendy bedroom that shows some personality and feels like your own private enclave.

Bedroom Design Ideas: 8 Unique Nightstand Alternatives To Try Now

nightstand alternatives

Your nightstand might be one of the most personal pieces of furniture. Not only do you spend a third of your life sleeping next to it, most of us also use our nightstands as a home for an intimate collection of our most personal objects.

A typical nightstand might display everything from a pile of books you’re reading (or intend to read, or want people to think you’re reading), a collection of half-finished beverages, photos of your travels and loved ones, or simply your nighttime essentials like reading glasses or the retainer you never wear.

But aside from being a highly personal piece of furniture, your nightstand should also be functional. And sometimes, the most functional nightstand is actually no nightstand at all.

This may sound crazy, but this simple swap can instantly pack your space with multi-purpose power. Read on to see some of our favorite nightstand alternatives that add extra function without skimping on style.

8 Nightstand Alternatives for the Multi-Purpose Bedroom

nightstand alternatives1. Go Vertical With a Bookcase

Why not save space with a bookcase that doubles as your nightstand? Just clear off a shelf that’s easy to reach and stash all your bedside essentials there. You can use the other shelves for extra storage, which is great if you’re tight on space. It’s a win win if you ask us!

nightstand alternatives2. Pull Up a Chair

If all you need is a place to set down a bedtime book, an alarm clock, or your phone to charge overnight, a lightweight chair is an easy nightstand alternative.

Want to get multipurpose? Try pulling in an extra dining chair. This works well if you don’t use all your dining chairs daily, but like having them on-call for when guests come over.

nightstand alternatives3. Consider a Console

Is your big, bulky nightstand making your bedroom feel cramped and cluttered? Try a console with an open base instead.

Console tables are designed to be used in (often narrow) entryways, making them one of the best nightstand alternatives for small spaces. Their long and slender shape won’t clutter up floor space, but you still get a decent amount of surface area to prop bedside essentials, art, and decor.

Looking to optimize a small entryway? Here are 5 ideas.

nightstand alternatives4. Work It With a Desk

Need to fit in a mini office in your bedroom? Skip the nightstand and go for a desk instead. Not only are these stylish nightstand alternatives, a desk also gives you both lots of surface space and storage if you pick one with a drawer.

nightstand alternatives5. Do Double-Duty With a Dresser

When it comes to making the most of a storage piece, try using a dresser as your nightstand. This 2-for-1 approach helps you save space in the room (let’s face it: dressers are big!) but gives you tons of extra storage. Not to mention, they’re sure to bring bold style to your bedside.

nightstand alternatives6. Float a Shelf

This is both a clever and cost-effective option for super small spaces. You can count on a floating shelf to hold all your nighttime essentials, all the while saving you lots of floor space.

If one is not enough, we suggest stacking two floating shelves.

nightstand alternatives7. Move a Stool Over

For another low-cost alternative to a nightstand, try a small stool, bench, or ottoman. This is an easy, portable option that also doubles as a convenient spot to put your shoes on in the morning.

Plus, you can easily pull the stool into your living room when you need an extra seats.

nightstand alternatives8. Trunk It!

Looking to add a little vintage style or rustic charm to your bedroom? Try an industrial trunk. It provides great storage and it’s got style to boot, making it one of our favorite nightstand alternatives.

If you get a trunk as a hand-me-down piece that you don’t quite know what to do with, swap it in for your nightstand.

Rest Assured: A Guide to Finding the Perfect Bedside Table

bedside table

When it comes to the bedroom, tracking down a good bedside table is a common hurdle many of our homeowners face.

If this sounds like a familiar struggle, don’t stress. We’ve totally been there and we feel your pain. Nightstands and beds come in all sizes, shapes, and styles, which makes finding the perfect pairing a bit difficult, not to mention time-consuming. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We’re here to help!

To start, here’s an easy rule of thumb: When choosing any nightstand, find one that’s around the same height as the top of your mattress.

Read on for more on how to find the perfect nightstand to go with your bed, no matter the size.

If you have a low bed…

The top of your mattress usually will measure around 18”–22” off the ground. You’ll want to look for a nightstand that’s similarly low-profile at around 16”–18” tall. You can even try some bedside table alternatives, like a stool, a short side table, or even a mini ottoman.

For a perfect pairing, we opted for CB2’s Alchemy Bronze Bed with the Hans End Table from Lumens.

bedside tableIf you have a medium-height bed…

It’s probably about 22.5”–25.5” from the ground to the top of the mattress (25” for most standard beds) Choose a nightstand that’s approximately 23.5” high for the perfect fit.

For a stylish combo, we recommend pairing together West Elm’s Andes Deco Upholstered Bed and Penelope Nightstand, which has an open base that can help to keep the bedside feeling open and spacious.

bedside tableIf you have a tall bed…

You’re looking at a mattress that’s 30”–33.5” off the ground. This means you’ll want a nightstand that’s at least 28” or taller to ensure that it’s easy to reach.

The best part about a tall bed is that it’s pretty substantial in scale so you can even pair it with a small dresser that adds storage instead of the table—just as we did here with a wrought-iron Mason Bed from Crate & Barrel and Washed Wood Nightstand from Anthropologie.

Bedroom Ideas: 5 Steps to Creating a Calming Bedroom

The bedroom is one space we get many questions about here at Modsy. After all, it’s the most personal room in your home where you start and end your days, so it should be a space that’s not only stylish but one that also inspires rest for you.

And whether you’re in the process of rethinking your bedroom or looking to make some updates, there are some key pieces that can help set it apart as the ultimate soothing space.

Here, we break down for you just what these design elements are when it comes to building a calming bedroom.

 

Calming bedroom

 

1. Establish an Inviting Foundation

The bed is what everything else in the room will revolve around. Rather than going for one that’s conveniently sized or quick to ship, invest in a bed that’s just right for you and will set a cozy tone in your room.

A good starting point: An upholstered bed with light or neutral fabric will instantly give your bedroom a soft, inviting look. If an upholstered bed isn’t your thing, a simple frame or an open base is a great alternative — they tend to take up minimal space and have a way of making your room feeling airy as opposed to cluttered.

 

Calming bedroom

2. Create a Personal Spot

In the bedroom, your nightstand is your most personal space. It’s an area where you should let your style shine.

A good starting point: Choose a nightstand or side table that suits your needs. Want extra storage to hold your binge-reading material? Opt for one with drawers. Just want a place to set your alarm clock or a late-night cup of tea? A nightstand with a larger swath of surface area is the way to go. Add a pretty table lamp and hang a favorite photo or painting to make the space feel extra personal; it’s a great way to incorporate elements that soothe your senses.

 

Calming bedroom

3. Incorporate Light Wood Tones

Be it your nightstand or a dresser for all your clothes and blankets, lighter woods in the bedroom can keep the space feeling open and spacious.

A good starting point: We love the look of Mid-century pieces with their clean lines and tapered legs for bedside storage. If you have the space for it, a dresser that’s big enough to hold all your soft goods can also make for a simple and stylish display surface for small personal items. The key is to keep to a neutral and work with a light palette for your furnishings, bedding, and accents.

4. Fill Your Walls

Admittedly your bedroom walls can be difficult to outfit, especially when you want to maintain a calm atmosphere. But if you leave them empty, your room somehow feels incomplete.

A good starting point: The round mirror trend is a great option. Placing it above the bed to reflect more light into the room gives the space the illusion of being larger that it is.

Another option is to bring in an open bookshelf in place of a nightstand because it solves two big dilemmas: it can function just like a nightstand but takes up little space and doesn’t feel bulky; and it also extends vertically so it fills the walls but doesn’t overwhelm your room.

5. Inject a Bit of Color

While a completely white bedroom can feel incredibly cozy, a strategic approach to color can make for a bedroom that’s equally alluring and calming. A little color will also help to break up white walls and white bedding.

A good starting point: Pick a color and stick to shades of it when you’re picking your pillows, rug, accents, and art. This way your space will feel united by one continuous palette, and the color becomes your guide for everything that you decide to add to your room later on. Keeping to one hue will also minimize the visual frenzy, creating a clean overall look and feel.

This render features shades of blue, as this primary hue has a soothing and serene quality. Shades of green with white is another easy color combo to encourage a calming effect. Blue and green are both easy to work with as they recall the outdoors and nature.
