Bring the outdoors into your home this Spring/Summer!

Here at Harris Interiors, Leeds, our customers are continually asking us to create bigger, brighter and lighter spaces. Spring is well underway and with summer just around the corner, we all wish we could bring the glorious sunshine and springtime aromas into our home, so we’ve compiled our top 5 ways to bring the outside in for any budget!


Windowsill herb garden

This is an option to suit any budget! Add a windowsill herb garden to your kitchen to incorporate all of the fresh garden aromas into your home, and provide an abundance of fresh herbs to cook with. The milder indoor climate also ensures you won’t ‘go without’ through the winter months, making way for fresh and tasty meals all year round.


Bi-folding patio doors

If you’re in the process of a kitchen re-design, and your kitchen looks out onto your garden or outdoor space; consider adding bi-folding doors. Although not suitable for everyone’s budget, this trick of the trade literally brings the outside in, providing a terrace style open plan area in the summer and bringing in maximum natural light throughout the winter. Apply a similar rule to attic spaces by adding skylight windows to automatically open up the space.


Fresh flowers

There are not many things more invigorating than the smell of fresh flowers. Similarly to the windowsill herb garden, this low budget option brings the outdoor freshness of spring and summer indoors.


Incorporate colours which reflect your garden


Add the bright greens, reds, yellows and cool blues of the garden to your walls or accessories. Alternatively, play with modern florals, or nature inspired prints on towels, curtains, blinds or cushions to really bring the feeling of the outside in.


Use natural materials

Whether it’s for sinks and worktops or floors and furniture, natural materials help to bring nature into your home. The key here is to make sure they stand out from their surroundings by combining them with industrial shapes or accents, or make them pop against super clean minimalist schemes.
