Sandy toes. Salty air. Freshly cut grass. The morning sun on your face. The wind rustling through branches. There’s no question that nature soothes the soul and re-energizes the body.

But, the Environmental Protection Agency reports that people still spend on average up to 90% of their time indoors.

Designer Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow has some suggestions to bring the outdoors in.
