Bringing the outside in*

Often when looking for inspiration I just have to look outside and the colours and textures in nature are just what I need to inspire me. When I came across this first image I absolutely fell in love and wished I had somewhere in my house I could do a grouping similar to this one but it also gave me the idea that using natural elements, such as sea fans, palm leaves and coral. All of which are cost effective and attractive ways to decorate any space. Below are a few spaces where natural elements have been used to compliment the spaces they are in. I especially love the idea of framing the palm leaves and sea fans to create artwork.
