Bird houses

Bird houses aren’t just for the birds -- they’re for you, as well. Pick out pretty, decorative birdhouses and keep them inside, rather than out. Set them on tables or hang them on your wall for great accent pieces throughout your home.


Don’t limit your wreaths to your front door. Purchase a wreath made of your favorite flowers, and hang it on a wall inside of your home to bring a bit of garden to your living room or hallway. Change out your wreaths with the season so they always look as if you could have just plucked each flower yourself.

What says "garden" better than fresh flowers? Purchase a vase you love and keep it full of flowers (fresh or silk) at all times for a bit of the garden wherever you want it. Check out your local HomeGoods for an entire aisle of designer vases at discount prices.


Go for linens with garden-inspired patterns. Instead of replacing your whole quilt or all of your curtains,  start with something small like a throw pillow or a rug.


Choose tableware with a bright floral pattern to give a garden vibe to every meal you serve. Opt for melamine tableware to keep the cost low. This durable material not only looks much more expensive than it is, but it can also take a few good drops. It works for indoor and outdoor dining. If you can’t afford a whole new set, consider replacing just a few bigger pieces, such as a pitcher and serving platter.

There’s no better way to bring nature’s beauty indoors than by capturing it in a picture. Framed pictures can be costly, but there are many ways to reduce the cost. Look at buying paintings and photos printed on canvas, because they are often much cheaper than their framed counterparts. You can also consider buying unframed photos and paintings to frame yourself. The cheapest way to go is to simply take the photos yourself -- if you aren’t paying for the artwork, you’ll have a bigger budget for a gorgeous frame. If you insist on buying the finished product, go for smaller pieces. The right shot can make a big impact at any size.

DEcor tip

Want a little garden indoors? Plant an actual indoor garden! Plant herbs and other small plants in small containers, and place them indoors near a window.
