6 Ways to Bring the Outdoors In
Decor, clothing and beauty products that will satisfy all your petal and leave needs
Each September, our annual Gardens of the Year issue always leaves us with greenery and blooms on the brain. But, for those without a green thumb or space for a sprawling garden, there are certainly other ways to bring the outdoors inside—from your home to your wardrobe and beauty routine here are fresh finds to fill your hours with flowers.
Dismiss notions of flowery settees only being the domain of grandmothers and embrace a modern, largescale floral print on you next sofa. Soften a chic home office by adding a desk with a floral motif or keep it classically classy with a Dorothy Draper-designed chest of drawers with flower knobs.

The only thing better than being surrounded by lovely blooms in the garden is waking up among them every day. Turn your bedroom into a floral fantasia with a playful, flower-filled duvet of Finnish design or a more stately set of bedding with blooms, branches and birds.

Greenery-and-flower-filled artwork should do anything but blend in. Let your spaces flourish with anything from elegant photography of leafy silhouettes and captivating cacti to vibrant drawings of your favorite blooms and wall decals that are simply stunning.

The Natural Touch
Sometimes, it’s the little touches that make the most impact. Small additions like a 100-percent recycled cotton tea towel, a cute candle that will fill your home with the scent of lavender and lemons and a lush desktop calendar are the perfect start to a fresh home.

Start your day the natural way. Add a beetroot latte to your daily mix and let the pink-drink power you for hours. Get your beauty routine going with white flower body butter. After your morning rinse, move on to a rose facial spray to freshen and tone and round it out with a swipe of bold hibiscus petal lip tint.

Why leave the flower power at home? Head to hot yoga in eye-catching leggings that combine flowers and graphic stripes. Slip on blush kicks with floral embroidery. Or adorn your ears with wooden statement earrings that push petals and rock a blooming red dress.
