Greenery looks to be going no where in 2017. In fact, Pantone’s colour of the year, has seen many interior brands focus on how you can bring a touch of the outdoors into your home for Spring Summer. So in this post, I want to show you that by just adding a few gorgeous accessories from the Sainsbury’s Home Garden Room collection, you can transform a space into a relaxing indoor zen garden.
The Garden Room trend is perfect as we are coming into the warmer months. The super affordable supermarket collection features tones of green and pinks throughout, which is a match made in interiors heaven. And whilst these colours are bang on trend, the Sainsbury’s Garden Room collection also adds that vintage, country classic style.

FIVE TIPS FOR BRINGING THE OUTDOORS IN
1. Decorate and style with colours of the outdoors such as tones of greens and pair will colours such as pinks and spring flowers etc. This will create a natural, fresh and clean look.
2. Use natural materials, textures and patterns. Think wicker, rattan, hemp and jute for furniture mixed with your favourite colours and fabrics featured in cushions and throws.
3. Bring in greenery. Faux or real plants (depending on your plant skills) are an essential step into transforming a space into a garden room. Tropical palms or leafy ferns can have maximum impact and take little plant care.
4. Utilise the natural light. Most people with a garden room are luckily enough to have floor to ceiling doors/windows or roof lights which can really make you feel like you are sitting outdoors from the comfort of your own home. Make sure you don’t cover these with big bulky curtains and instead consider sheer fabrics.
5. Use the space to its full potential. One of the best uses of a garden room can be an extended social area. For example, design the space so that the room can have can a quiet reading area as well as sofas for entertaining and socialising.
The Sainsbury’s Garden Room collection offers a broad range of products that could be styled throughout the home such as botanical printed tableware, ceramics, accessories, lighting and bedding. The items I chose completely transformed the garden room into a vibrant and fresh space. The beautiful tones of pink, purple and yellow just popped against the greenery and open space and matched perfectly with finishing gold touches.
Here are my favourite items from the range:
