What do you do on a rainy Sunday if you are an Interior Designer?
I have always been creative from a very young age, making things and creating new looks ideas and even chopping up and adding to clothing to make unique pieces.
Today I'm doing a spot of indoor gardening because I am desperate to get outside to do some planning. I have already mowed the lawn last week on a dry day!. The mower was not happy to come out in February but I like a well-manicured garden.
Take a look at how I have used these gorgeous chicken wire lanterns to create an indoor oasis of spring bulbs.

Pre Bank Holiday Garden MakeoverKerrie GriffinI was sat in the hot tub facing the sun glass in hand and book at the ready my view was the before shot. I had seen an idea last summer in a house I was buying of something similar but inside and most mirrors cart be used outside so I went about a little research and made my way to the supermarket for some bank holiday treats! Budget Garden Makeover for £28 by Kerrie Griffin Interior Designer The Interior Co.

Create the ultimate home oasis this summer
After an utterly rubbish year last year, it was time to do some self-love. I have chosen the all-singing, all-dancing, speakers, waterfalls and led lights in and out, Palm Spas Colada, hot tub to put a spring back in my step! What have you self indulged on? Tag someone who needs one
Summer is promising heat waves. That means more time outdoors, warmer weather, BBQs, time for gardening, and longer days spent relaxing outside trying to get you back!. That's why now is just the perfect time to make your outside space work for you, says Kerrie Griffin, Interior Designer from The Interior Co. Make your back garden into the special place you will want to be in all summer long, even if it's raining. There's no better way to spend free time wrapped up under a blanket enjoying the fresh air under a canopy or marquee of some sort, making it a place you never want to leave. All it takes is some imagination and some careful planning. Do your research says, Kerrie. Follow our pinboards. I have one just for Gardens on The Interior Co Pinterest. I regularly pin garden ideas and look back on my most creative days to put some of my plans into action.
