Bringing the outdoors indoors!

 

 

Contemporary living can get so busy, balancing work with pleasure. In my typical day I tend to work from around 9 am till 5 pm and don’t really go outside, as I work from home. This means that I don’t get to go outdoors i.e. travel to work and see the trees, flowers, shrubs etc…, which can be a downside. I sometimes find myself craving the relaxing influence of greenery and nature. I’m not complaining though because I actually love being at home!

When I visit the Lake District in Cumbria, I’m guaranteed to feel relaxed and happy. Although there may be many psychological reasons why, I believe it is because of being in the midst of all the beautiful hills and all the expanse of green!  All the usual daily worries are suddenly zapped from my mind.  It is such a beautiful part of Britain.

In this post I want to share with you some great inspiration for bringing the outdoors indoors! – loving the botanical inspired home accessories and patterns.This look is very on-trend at the moment and so far this season, I have seen a lot of botanical patterns on fashion garments.

What I have found interesting is that filling your home with indoor plants can create a fresh, healthy environment, which have some good benefits. By absorbing carbon dioxide, filtering volatile organic compounds and producing oxygen, leafy plants can combat all sorts of symptoms, from drowsiness to dry skin.  Cool eh?  Peace Lilies, Aloe Vera and English Ivy are three of the best house-plant varieties for the job.  To find out more, go here.
