The home is a place for all kinds of comforts. Traditionally speaking, it could be seen as a protection from the outside world, a safe haven for family and friends from the weather and excesses of nature. It can also be a place for containing beautiful aspects of nature, in style and comfort. Here at Dotmaison we love the idea of nature and design working together to produce home comforts to enhance the feeling of secure home life.
Take the fantastic Greenhouse on Stand with Glass Dome (above) by Sagaform. Bringing a real sense of beauty and value to the work of all keen gardeners, the indoor greenhouse allows a fantastic display of cuttings and herbs to bestow a look of nature in action in the home. Easy to use and appreciate, the glasshouse works on the principle that the gardener plants the cuttings in the base of the unit and then places the glass dome over the top. Then it’s up to nature to do its job and let the plants grow, at which point the dome can be removed. The Scandinavian style greenhouse makes a great addition to kitchen or any room in the house and is available in a variety of colours.
The Orla Kiely Grow Your Own Gift Sets are also ideal for the home loving gardener. The Grow Your Own Dill Gift Set (above) works on the basis of offering you everything you need to successfully grow your own dill. Seeds, soil and full instructions mean that you’ll be able to see results in next to no time! Gorgeously designed to the famous Orla Kiely sense of the aesthetic, the enamel plant pots arrive gift boxed and provide the perfect opportunity to bring about some wonderful home gardening!
Fruit is another aspect of nature that can bestow a welcoming and enjoyable air to the home. When fragrant and delicious fruit is housed in such a lovely piece of design work as the Alessi Mediterraneo Fruit Holder it can be appreciated all the better. The bowl features a fantastic stainless steel open work design, calling to mind a distinctly modernist approach to the material. As a way of presenting the gifts of nature to the home, it makes a striking and profound statement.
