Finding ways to bring the outdoors inside creates this wonderful organic connection between your home and nature.

In my own home, I try to do this in a few different ways:

– Incorporating a rustic, reclaimed-wood dining table.  

My wife and I love our beautiful, worn wood table. It brings soul, character, warmth, and a sense of history into our home.

– Potting fruit trees. We actually have a thriving avocado tree in our home, and we love the look and feel it lends to the ambiance. It’s super easy to care for and fresh guacamole is only a few feet away at any given time!

– Fresh flowers. It may seem obvious, but nothing brings elegance to your home as simply, yet relatively inexpensively, as flowers. They are always a mood-lifter, the smell is fresh, green, and floral, and the colors are a natural accent to our décor.
