Bring the Outside In

A simple way to improve your (or someone else’s) home life

We’re all being asked to do our part and stay home more these days. One way to instantly improve your surroundings is to bring a little of the outside indoors. UrbanStems, the tastemaker's choice for flowers, recently launched dried bouquets that have a uniquely modern, textured style. The artfully dried stems are also easy to care for (no water) and a great value, considering that they'll be able to stick around for months to come.

We like the simplicity of the feather-like pampas grass—a hardy South American plant native to Brazil, Argentina and Chile—which comes in an elegant mouth-blown glass vase. It makes a statement without being loud. But if you want something a bit more fanciful, there's the monochromatic Logan bouquet, which features preserved ferns, sea lavender, dried oats and strawflower. Either would look sharp as a table centerpiece or accenting a fireplace mantle or nightstand.

If you're looking to send someone a natural pick-me-up, consider UrbanStem's brightly colored Summer Collection. Inspired by summer meadows and backyard gardens, these arrangements offer a shot of floral-scented serotonin right to the brain. After all, just because you can't physically be with your loved ones, that doesn't mean you can't let them know you're thinking of them and brighten their day. We've picked out some of our favorite bouquets.
