This week the DMV is supposed to be exceptionally steamy with highs in the low 90s. So, instead of torturing yourself by actually being outside, here are a few more tips to bring the outdoors into the joy of air conditioning.
4. Colors & Textures Inspired By Nature
Incorporating greens and blues into your home decor like Laura did for the #worldtraveler project can make it feel like you are relaxing by a serene pool in the middle of a lush forest without ever leaving the comfort of your own home. Adding in natural textures such as a sisal rug and baskets inspired by water reeds really completes the waterfront illusion.
5. Amazing Artwork
Artwork that embraces nature is a quick and easy way to add a touch of the outdoors to your home. This even works for those of us who are a bit more averse to the use of color in our decorating. A black and white botanical print still gives a nod to nature while keeping with a clean, neutral aesthetic. Or, you could go all in with a large, striking landscape to really make it feel like you're having a picnic in the midst of an awe-inspiring vista instead of simply eating lunch in your dining room.

6. Fabulous Flora
One of the cheapest and easiest ways to bring the outdoors in is through the use of plants, flowers, and other foliage. A large fiddle leaf fig tree can make a huge impact. Something as simple as some fresh cut flowers, picked up from your local farmers market can give you that feeling of spending time outside in any room in your house.
Another fun and practical way to incorporate greenery into your home is through the use of potted herb plants. Many herbs flourish indoors and then you have a constant supply of fresh flavors to add to your cooking!
