Outdoor-Inspired Decor

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with family and friends!  Today, I'm excited to share a great guest post with you - it's from Mari at Arcadian Lighting.  Hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear your feedback in the comment section below.


Hello, everyone! It's Mari here visiting from Arcadian Lighting, the place to go for light fixtures and lighting news on the Internet. One of the things I love most about writing for Arcadian Lighting is that I often get to do guest posts for great blogs like Inspired Whims. Today's post is all about decorating ideas for outdoor inspired spaces. No matter the season, it seems natural elements can bring rooms to life and make them feel more inviting. Materials such as wood and natural stone, live plants and other objects found in nature can bring the beauty of the outdoors inside. Here are eight rooms that do just that. Please enjoy!

A lovely collection of staghorn ferns and other plants brings nature right up onto this inviting covered porch. Pale green cushions reinforce the natural feel of this outdoor decor.

I love this corner with its fresh outdoor feel. An amazing display of daffodils and greenery bring early spring inside. I think I've fallen for that woven back chair—gorgeous.

A hollowed-out tree stump makes for a unique planter and an appealing outdoor inspired décor. The contrast of rustic background with tailored white slipcovered furniture is lovely.

With a panoramic ocean view, this open and airy living room is naturally inspired by the outdoors, but a massive fiddle leaf fig and appealing wood sculpture definitely further the feel of nature.

A simple white drum pendant light seems the perfect fixture for this lovely nature inspired bedroom. Natural woods, pale greens and flower-strewn artwork are all outdoor inspired elements that look at once chic and natural.

Enveloped in greenery inside and out, this light-filled conservatory is the epitome of outdoor inspired décor. I also love the mauve tones with the deep green of the plants.

With a river rock floor, this modern bath has an inviting natural feel. Add the gorgeous bonsai tree in a simple black vessel and a glamorous lighting fixture and it’s the perfect place to relax.

Words fail when attempting to describe the feeling evoked by this out-of-the-ordinary outdoor inspired space. Budding branches, natural wood and a grass green throw are a stunning combination.

Thanks for the post Mari!  Don't you just love bringing the outdoors in?   It provides a much needed breath of fresh air.  I have to say my favorite featured photos are the ocean-side living room with that beautiful fiddle-leafed fig tree, and the gorgeous terrarium-like sun room.  What was your favorite space?
