Bring the outdoors inside with the natural beauty of plants and flowers!  Just take a look at the impact colorful plants have on these beautiful rooms above!  If you love a do-it-yourself project (DIY), you may want to try your hand at creating the brightly colored, branch and floral headboard featured here. Simply tie strings of flowers onto a large sized branch and then adhere the branch to the wall above your bed.   A unique a special feature for the nature lover and DIY crafter! 

 

If you don’t have a green thumb try planting cactus in brightly colored flower pots.  Cactus is easy to care for, so a great houseplant choice for beginners and its rich green color is sure to add to your space!  Not feeling like trying your hand at gardening?  Don’t forget you can simply pick up some richly hued flowers and greenery at the market and place them in vases around your home.  The more the merrier and don’t be afraid to mix and match flower colors!
