Five ways you can bring nature indoors to decorate your home

Dee Yonker

BEING at one with nature no longer means heading outside.

Using plants and aspects of the natural world for interior decoration has never been more popular, with Pinterest searches for “biophilic design” up by 100 per cent.

Here’s how you can bring a touch of the outdoors into your natural habitat.

STAND TALL: Put your plants in pride of place. Primark has a tall gold stand for £10. Or try Poundland’s gold and black one for £3. It also has a set of two stands (67cm and 96cm), reduced from £40 to £20.

RETURN OF THE MACRAME: Create your own macrame hanging planter with a free tutorial from influencer Emily Faith (youtube.com/emilyfaith). Hobbycraft sells everything you need in a handy kit for £13. Not up to DIY? Shein.co.uk sells them for £2.25 each.

YES, YOU CAN: Repurpose an old watering can and use it to house your favourite greenery. If you haven’t got something in the shed you can use, check your local charity shop.
If you want something more chic, The Range has a metal watering can for £22.99, and Wilko is selling a very similar one for £6.25.

LET IT TEA: You can turn almost anything into a planter, to add texture and style to a room. Try upcycling a tea caddy or reusing old baked bean cans and spray to add colour. All can be rinsed, lined with pebbles and stacked around a room.

GLASS ACT: Save your empty candle jars and soak in water to remove any labels. Fill with hot water to lift off the rest of the wax and leave overnight so that any residue rises to the top. Rinse again and pick up the amazon.co.uk starter pack of five succulents for £3.96 (usually £9.75) and make your own DIY terrarium for a fraction of the cost.
