Bringing the Outdoors In: Creating an Indoor Garden Space

Your garden office or studio allows you to enjoy all the benefits of an indoor space in the garden, but what if you’d like to reverse the process and bring the outdoors in?

Natural garden inspired decor is the perfect choice for any garden room and this kind of project is a wonderful way to let your imagination run riot. There are a variety of ways of bringing the outdoors in, ranging from small scale additions to your room right up to major interior design concepts. Which will you choose?

Pot Plants

The obvious, fastest and easiest way to bring some of the garden into your indoor space is to use pot plants. For extra impact, group plants in clusters around the room, or in one “outdoor corner”. If space is limited, don’t forget to work vertically too - you can create entire shelves of plants which will be very eye-catching.

Herbal Delights

Another easy way to bring some life into your garden room is to grow herbs. Most herbs are easy to grow indoors, and ask for nothing more than a sunny windowsill and a pot or tray. Again, for maximum visual impact, group the herbs together and choose pots which really appeal to you.

Succulents and Cacti

Cacti come in all shapes and sizes, and can make an impressive display on a coffee table or in a corner of your garden office. They require very little care and look best sculpted in a mini garden of rocks and other architectural details.

Natural Decor

To enhance the outdoor feeling of your space, look out for natural materials wherever possible. Shells, branches and other natural treasures can look stunning when put together with an eye for beauty - even something as simple as a shell lampshade or a natural twig hanging basket all adds up to the feeling of the great outdoors.

Go Whimsical

Indoor terrariums are a stunning option for adding some life to your space. These can be as large or as small as you wish; you could even opt for a ceiling height terrarium in the corner of the office. Alternatively, think smaller but whimsical, such as a miniature moss terrarium complete suitable for a desk.

Think Vertical

Where space is at a premium, some of the most innovative indoor garden ideas involve gardening upwards. Living plant walls can be a stunning feature for you garden office, and will help to rehydrate the air you breathe too.

However you choose to bring the outdoors in, it’s easy to add natural, stylish flair to your indoor space.
