Using Garden Accessories to Decorate a Family Room
by Veronica Smith
Family rooms are a cozy, pleasant area of the home where families gather to spend time together. Decorating your family room by using gardening accessories can be a fun way to add a real down-home feel to your family room. There are lots of different garden accessories that you can use to create a nice visual effect.
Functional Items as Art
Sometimes it doesn't take a lot of thought to decide which types of gardening accessories would be perfect for the family room. If you have a family member that has a collection that lends itself to this type of decor, it can be a great way of not only displaying the collection, but also decorating the room.
You might also want to go with a more floral approach when choosing gardening related accessories for your family room.
Sundials and Weathervanes
There are other items that are commonly used in the garden that can add an eye-catching accent to your family room.
A colorful "Welcome" mat by the door leading into the family room can also be a nice touch.
A fun idea that you can use in your family room to bring a little bit of the outdoors inside is to use either a rural mailbox or one that is designed to be mounted on the side of a house.
There are also garden touches you can add as furniture accents. You could make an end table from an oak barrel, or even install a garden swing as an interesting seating option in the family room. All of these ideas can be used to bring a little bit of the garden indoors.
