Get the look: How to bring the beauty of the outdoors into your interior

Whether a sprawling living room or a simple, corner nook, any interior space that boasts garden or harbour views — especially via floor to ceiling windows — should take inspiration from its surrounds and endeavour to emulate the same natural ethos indoors.

To try this look at home, opt for comfortable furnishings in a colour palette evocative of your surrounds — greens in forest and ocean hues, earthy browns, reddish tones and golden accents. The finished product? Soft, welcoming spaces that encourage whoever enters them to reconnect with nature and, above all, relax.
