Natural Opulence: Natural Beauty Meets Sophisticated Design

Posted on: October 22nd, 2014

The design trend we’ve been watching (coined as “Natural Opulence”) is slowly creeping up in homes, businesses, and resorts all across the globe.

Natural Opulence is perfect for those who have an eye for sophistication and an equally pervasive desire to capture the inherent beauty found in the natural environment. The trend is all about combining natural elements, such as woods, fibers, and materials you would find outdoors, with the clean and polished look of an expertly designed locale.

Take Jungle Island for example. You’ll find this park in Miami, FL, a part of the country that epitomizes “Natural Opulence.” Miami is immersed in a tropical, laid-back environment, but amongst the island feel, you’ll find some of the world’s most sophisticated restaurants, shopping areas, and resorts. Jungle Island has recently been undergoing a complete transformation, to combine its love for the natural world with its reputation for holding upscale private events for various clientele. 

Regarding the new concept for the design:

“It aims to bring subtle traces from the enchanting environments of the outside world indoors. Every element within the project ties into the environment in a meaningful and modern way, as most evidently seen in the refined textures, neutral color palette, and blends of wood and fibers.”

Much like Jungle Island, you can transform your home or office with a little natural opulence as well. Many companies, including amaZulu, provide highly unique products that you can’t find at your regular design studios. Following suit, designers and homeowners are choosing to mix and match elements to create entirely new, immersive experiences that people keep talking about.
