6 ways to bring the outdoors in
Inject your house with all the gorgeousness of the great outdoors by incorporating floral prints and natural textures.
1. Go Faux
Put all thoughts of obviously fake looking flowers out from your mind, the latest faux flowers not only look amazingly realistic but are an easy (not to mention economical) way to instantly bring the look and feel of the garden into your home.
2. Pretty enough to eat (on)
Floral adorned crockery is a great option instead of a plain white design and will keep a summery garden feel in your home even when it’s dark and gloomy outside.
3. Scent it
Live in a flat or in the middle of a city with no outside space? Make it feel like your windows open out onto a garden by scenting your home by candle, room pomanders or a bowl over-flowing with floral scented pot pourri.
4. Hints of green
Not everything in your home has to be obviously garden inspired. Subtle hints of green here and there will give just a nod to the outside world inside your home, plus are easy to co-ordinate with an existing colour scheme.
5. Introduce wood
When it comes to room accessories, why not look to a natural material like wood rather than metal or ceramic. It has a luxurious softness to it, is exceptionally hard wearing and totally classic in style.
6. Lie on a bed of roses
Looking for a bed linen refresh? Then why not go for a beautifully floral adorned print? If that feels a bit too feminine for the man in your life then simply team neutral coloured pillows and duvet covers with floral cushions instead.
