Bring the outdoors in

Glass box extensions can be a challenge to decorate, but if you want to give yours a more traditional feel, try to bring the outdoors in so the garden feels like a natural extension of the room.

Choose a natural colour scheme, like this lush green, and soften the space with lots of warm wood furniture and leafy green fabrics and wallpaper. Use similar plants and planters inside and out to maximise the outdoor feel.
