The Best Ways to Bring the Outdoors In
May 8, 2020
With the natural world in full bloom just beyond your door, you’re probably feeling like spending more time in nature! If you don’t actually have a lot of spare time to go outside, you can bring nature to you! Here’s how.
- Houseplants and flowers. If your favorite part of the great outdoors is the greenery, it’s easy enough to transplant that right into your living room. Start your own indoor garden with easy-to-maintain plants like succulents, or bring in the fresh blooms.
- Bold colors. The earth explodes into a rainbow of bright hues this time of year, so why not let your apartment follow suit? Treat yourself to a new set of cases for your throw pillows bearing a vibrant floral print or swap out your vases for glass bottles in jewel tones.
- Natural materials. Hemp. Jute. Cotton. Light, earthy materials like these are great choices when you’re redecorating for a warmer season. Mix up your decor with a new jute rug or switch up your fuzzy fleece throw blankets for something lighter, like cotton or linen.
- Floral scents. Even the air in your home can smell sweet like the outdoors! A great way to achieve this without letting a scent get too overwhelming is to use essential oils. You can snag a stylish diffuser online for less than $20 or simply spray a few drops onto your pillowcase. Scents like lavender and rose are perfect for this time of year. Lavender comes with the added bonus of easing anxiety!
