A house with a white picket fence and overflowing flower boxes might be a far cry from your city studio apartment — but that doesn't mean you can't bring some of that picturesque suburban charm into your existing space. If hanging flower boxes from exterior windows isn't an option, bring the flower boxes inside. There's no rule that says they can only exist on the outside of your house. Jonathan Rachman of Jonathan Rachman Design recently transformed the living room in the 2017 San Francisco Decorator Showcase House into a retro green sheathed space. And to complement the shades of emerald, jade, and sage, Jonathan brought in actual greenery. He tucked traditional (but unmounted) flower boxes filled with lively ferns beneath the windows. They take up less space than a potted tree and offer the same enlivening effect as a house plant while taking up much less real estate. They look just as enchanting as outdoor flower boxes, can be filled with a wide array of flora depending on natural light conditions, and are an ingenious way to bring the outdoors into a space of any size and locale.
