Bring the Outdoors In
Take some inspiration from your garden—a piece of wrought-iron gate, a cachepot, a garden tool—and use it out of norm and in the home. Try storing spatulas or large utensils in a terra-cotta pots, or frame a collection of antique gardening tools or freshly picked plant leaves. Try creating a seasonal wall collage of sorts using branches from garden plants dipped in shellac and glued to an old piece of barn wood.
