Create a window retreat for spring.


The weather is turning just enough to start enjoying alfresco living. You don’t need a garden, or even a balcony, to get the benefits of the great outdoors in the city, try turning a window into a relaxing space where you can connect with nature and get some fresh air.

IKEA Ideas - Create a window retreat for spring.

Bring the outdoors in.

Even the smallest outdoor area can become your Eden. Use your favourite view in the house as the starting point. Throw open the windows or French doors and pile up cushions and throws on a spare mattress to create a cosy lookout and the perfect spot to dine out. Grow an urban garden using hanging pots or by hooking plant holders over railings, if you have them.
