CRE­ATE IN­STANT OUT­DOOR AP­PEAL

Cabin Living - - Decor -

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.
