Bringing the Outdoors In
We love nature. Its beauty inspires us in our lives and our work. There are so many ways we incorporate nature into our work, from earth-toned palettes to showcasing an interesting piece of driftwood. But one of our favorite ways is simply to create space in our interiors for living plants. They bring happiness into any room, as well as provide health benefits! They absorb carbon dioxide and pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde while emitting clean oxygen into the air. Even NASA uses plants in the International Space Station!

Incorporating live plants into your space is a very simple way to elevate your house and give it a more homey feel. As many of you know, Michael is on the Board of Directors at the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens and we would suggest starting there to get inspiration for both the interior and exterior spaces in your home. They have an extensive garden that is just a treat to visit, as well as a great resource when planning what kinds of plants you may want in and around your home. Be sure to tell them we sent you!
