CREATE INSTANT OUTDOOR APPEAL
Create a corner retreat with a weathered bench, a birdbath or gently splashing fountain and a gathering of leafy greenery.
Install indoor flower boxes in front of your kitchen windows, and keep them filled with fragrant culinary herbs.
Plant a pair of palm, citrus or banana trees in large planter boxes, and place them flanking the doorway to your bedroom or bath. Mist frequently, and move outdoors during the summer months to keep them healthy and happy.
Evoke the need for shade from the sun with indoor plantation style shutters or fabric awnings. Choose fabrics with stripes synonymous with summers by the sea.
Feeling artistic? Use a hot glue gun to cover a mirror frame in natural moss. Dried bags of Spanish or oak moss are available by the bag in craft shops.
