10 Ways to Bring the Garden Indoors

It’s the 1st of June although unfortunately it’s not so Summery outside today. I’m sure there will be plenty of good weather for gardening coming soon enough but in the meantime here are some ways to bring some outdoor greenery inside for the rainier days and for those without gardens.

1. Plant Succulents in Teacups – A very cute and easy way to display small plants in a girly vintage style, perfect for cacti and succulents. Here’s a guide on how to do it.

2. Frame Dried Plants – This idea would work wonderfully using Nkuku Kiko glass frames. Love how they look like museum specimens. Get more tips for using dried plants here.

3. Make A Terrarium – A little more time consuming but the results can be stunning. There are some beautiful vessels about, such as these from Love Glass Lenka on Etsy, and here’s a great guide on how to make one.

4. Display Flowers in Tins – Why not go for something alternative to a vase to put your flowers in and use a vintage tin, or perhaps a jar or jug as shown in this blog post from Vintage Whites.

5. Hang Vintage Botanical Prints on the Walls – I love the fine detail of these old fashioned illustrations. Available to download free from Poppytalk, these prints would look great framed or even just taped to the wall.

6. Display Dried Twigs in Vases – Even just a collection of interesting branches or twigs clustered together in a beautiful glass vessel can make a great statement.

7. Cover a Wall with a Garden Scene – If you want to go all out with bringing the garden indoors this is the way to do it. If you don’t fancy painting a mural yourself Ananbo sell stunning panoramic wallpapers in classical landscape designs, or try this Olaf Hajek design for something more contemporary.

8. Upholster Your Furniture in Florals – If covering an entire wall in garden patterns seems a bit much, how about keeping the walls white and giving your sofa a floral makeover. Try Liberty or Abigail Borg for gorgeous floral fabrics.

9. Hang Framed Taxidermy Insects on the Walls – Plants and florals aren’t the only things lurking in the garden. Framed insects can make fascinating decorative props, especially effective displayed as a collection.

10. Cluster Exotic Fruits in Bowls – Never underestimate the humble fruit bowl. Use an interesting vintage bowl as a centrepiece and put a collection of exciting fruits like pineapples or lemons in it. Looks best if you use lots of the same fruit.
