Bring the outdoors in

Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space!

So what’s a summer-loving decorating diva to do? That’s easy -- stock up on gorgeous home accents inspired by nature. Check out some of the fresh and fabulous pieces we found.

Nature inspired decor

1Botanical ramekins

We couldn't resist the charm of these hand-painted ceramic ramekins in the shape of delicate flowers (Horchow, $35 each). The vibrant bowls are gorgeous on their own, or fill them with anything from candies and nuts to dips and spreads. We're partial to the poppy, but there are seven beautiful blooms to choose from.

2Driftwood hurricane

Setting up a few of these eye-catching hurricane candle holders (Anthropologie, $38), made from weathered mangrove branches over mouth-blown recycled glass, will add a warm glow to any room. We love the dappled light that flickers through the rustic tangle of branches.

3Wood wall clock

This elegant, walnut-finished pendulum clock (Crate & Barrel, $169) will make a statement in any room you hang it in. The clean lines and modern design offer a unique contrast to the natural material -- and the result is a timeless piece (pardon the pun) that won't wear out its welcome any time soon. Available for purchase in August.

4Mercury mushrooms

Create a magical garden indoors with these whimsical mushrooms made from silver mercury glass (West Elm, $10-$14). They range from small to extra large -- we suggest buying several to group together in a playful display on anything from your coffee or end table to your mantel.
