We at Planner 5D love to showcase our users and their original ideas, so from time to time we will pick a “Design of the week”. This week me, Alisa, an interior designer here at Planner 5D have been chosen to pick a project, and for this week's “Design of the week” we have chosen this breathtaking nature inspired design submitted by one of our users.
This week we chose this project, because it shows just how much you can do with some imagination and creativity.
This is a very aesthetically pleasing design, using many nature inspired elements, earthy colors and clean lines. If you look closely, You can see that the space is essentially divided into two parts - the first being horizontal, and the second being vertical.
The left part of the room is the horizontal side, we can see that by the way that it is wider than the right and how the creator used horizontal items for this part of the space, being the long sectional sofa, the rectangular coffee table, the small side tables and table lamps on either side of the sofa and even the blanket that is draped horizontally over the sofa - elongating the feel of the space even more.
The right part of the room is the vertical side, we can see that because the size of the space is a little bit smaller at the width, but goes right up to the top of the ceiling and even past the ceiling on the inside part, creating a very high looking area. The feeling of height is accentuated by the moss spreading on the ground and going up the walls, and the swing hung up in the middle of the space, giving us even more vertical lines to look at, which highlights the feeling of height even more.
While looking at the lighting of the room we can see that the two areas have different color hues. The right side of the room has colder lights, and the left side has warmer lights. The colder, brighter lights mimic the brightness of natural sunlight, so the natural elements of the space are lit up as if the room was getting natural light all day - that makes the space feel lively, just like you would see it outside. The warmer, dimmer lights on the left side however, give the space a grounding element, making the space feel cozy and warm, accentuating the earthy colors of the furniture and bringing peace to our bodies after a long day.
For those of you who are curious about what exactly the creator of this design used to create the mossy corner, here is a rundown:
They created the shape of the room and the swing by using the cube shape, which you can manipulate in many different ways.
If you are still confused about how to use the cube function - we are planning a whole video about what it is and how to use it in the near future, so be on the lookout for that.

You can see the full project here, where you can examine how all of these items were used. You might be surprised.
If you look at these items as they come in our application, you might think “where in the world are these items?”, but that’s the thing - you can change the size and shape of almost anything, and you can give it any texture or colour you want, rendering them as completely different looking items. So be creative and try looking further beyond just what you see in front of you!
If you’d like to see more projects like this one, you can go to our gallery.
In conclusion, this design is a perfect example of bringing nature into your home to the max and also how you can use items from our catalog in completely different ways. So don’t be afraid to look at items from a different perspective and go on and experiment!
