5 tips for bringing the outdoors inside…

by Rosanna Relton, May 2018

Summer has finally arrived in the UK and it’s about time! With temperatures in Bath this week well into the twenties we’re celebrating with lashings of rosé and suppers in the garden. With that in mind, we’ve been thinking of ways to bring the great outdoors into our homes to extend those summer nights as long as we can! Here are our top 5 tips:

  • Bring your favourite plants inside – this might seem like an obvious one, but you’d be surprised how much a different this makes, especially when you forget the phrase ‘less is more’, in this case ‘more is more’! Some plants thrive in humid conditions, such as Aloe Vera and Begonias, these are perfect to create a spa like feel in any bathroom.

  • Don’t be afraid to use garden furniture – a cosy Lloyd Loom style chair in any corner or at the dining table will bring a taste of the outdoors in. It’ll transition into winter with a blanket draped over and also prove useful as an extra for any garden soirées.

  • Entice the senses with outdoor scents – we’re thinking fresh, scented candles like Vine Tomato by The White Company, which smells divine and not too floral for when you are dining.

  • Use natural items to decorate with – sea shells, rocks and drift wood will create a relaxed feel to any room when used as ornaments or in place of other household items. Wood can create great deli boards or candleabras and seashells as soap holders or paper weights in a home office.

  • Let there be light – we all love natural light and it’s great for taking photos too! Let it in by replacing heavy curtains and drapes with lighter fabrics and sheers. Keep them longer too as it makes windows look bigger and breathes new life into a room.

Happy decorating!
