Decorating Your Manufactured Home with Natural Elements
Nature inspired colors and textures have been popular home decorating trends in the last couple of years. Bringing the outdoors in adds warmth and interest to a space. You just about can’t go wrong decorating your manufactured home by pairing wood with other natural textures like faux fur, stone, and natural fibers.
We love the look and think using nature inspired elements for decorating your manufactured is a great idea. And we have proof!
Texture is always a great element to add in a home and wood is a perfect way to add texture. Shiplap is one of the most popular home decorating trends we’ve seen in a while. It’s popular because it adds warmth, interest, and a natural element to a space. Some paint the boards, some don’t. You can use shiplap boards with the tongue and groove edges or just plain ole’ plank boards with no edging. For manufactured homes, it’s probably best to use thin boards and always mark your studs before you start. Hunter used shiplap on one wall in her living room and it looks great!
We love this cork board look as a ‘headboard’! Wallpaper in wooden patterns, like the one below, is a great way to add an accent to your room.
Blanche Devereaux Liked Green, too!
Remember Blanche’s bedroom in The Golden Girls? She didn’t technically have a headboard, she used a mural or wallpaper with big palm leaves on the wall to mimic one. I always loved that bedroom! Well, the look is back and it is a perfect idea for decorating your manufactured home. Palms and succulents are all over the decor sites and stores.
Green can compliment just about any room, including the kitchen.
Not that kind of stoned! Stone is a huge hit for decorating your manufactured home. You can put it anywhere and it will instantly add warmth to a room. Backsplashes, showers, accent walls, and fireplace surrounds are great places to add stone in your manufactured home. See for yourself:
Chantal used stone bricks as her backsplash and it is ah-mazing:
Paper, Rock, and Scissors?
This next manufactured home owner, Karrel, added stone to the wall that separates the living room from the kitchen in her 1986 Palm Harbor makeover. This looks just like the real stuff but it’s only wallpaper, really cool wallpaper.
Rich, vibrant gemstone and mineral colors are a big hit right now. From the emerald green (like we talked about earlier green is really popular) to the rich colors of jade, topaz, or ruby; the color wheel is yours for the taking.
A popular interior design trick is to use a lighter color for the walls and ceiling and another contrasting color as accents. The large canvas painting paired with a single chair in the living room below makes for great eye-catchers.
Decorating your Manufactured Home with Black
The night sky is even inspiring home decorating! Black is one color you don’t see often in home decor unless it’s furniture or picture frames. Lately, I’ve been seeing it used on trim and doors and I love it! It adds a great contrast to the space.
This single wide mobile home bedroom was given a whole new look with black trim:
