A couple of days into my holiday in Alicante, Spain and it’s raining. Been raining most of the day actually. Which is good for nature in this arid part of the world, but not so good if you are a tourist in pursuit of sun and warmth. But what can you do? I went window shopping …. Then thinking of the benefits of indoor green spaces.
Indoor green spaces is a cold weather idea. Meaning that (in theory) they are not required in places such as Alicante. The plants thrive very well outdoors, even if there’s no tourism weather in sight. For humans it’s a different story, most of us do not like being rained under. Snowed under for that matter either. So thanks to technology we came up with places that could combine a favourable climate and sexy plants no matter what the outside weather situation.
Conservatories are just a real brill idea. Not only do they enable indoor gardens, but they are beautifully designed structures with all that glass. The sexy plants are a vital ingredient. But so is other decor. Such as stunning furniture, textiles and ornaments. Conservatories became popular in the late 19th century. I find it intersting that over a hundred years later, the interior decorating style fashionable then still fit conservatories like hand in glove. Just check out the case studies in this post!
