If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that nature is truly a salve for our bodies and our minds. Perhaps that’s why it suddenly feels so fresh and so right to bring the great outdoors—and outdoor pieces—into our homes. Here, we share the elements that help create an indoor idyll.

1. Wicker Reborn
Forget your grandmother’s rocker: No longer synonymous with porches and patios,
the latest generation of wicker furniture looks equally at home in a formal parlor as in a sunbathed garden room.

2. Dainty Dishes
Summer may be fleeting, but you can capture its beauty—and serve it up—by laying your table with a garden of floral plates. As long as the theme is pretty, a jumble of colors and patterns can be most pleasing.
3. Tree Huggers
Consider it a migratory pattern: These containers are so good-looking, you’ll want to make their move indoors permanent. Oversized, artful and bearing no resemblance to their garden variety terra-cotta cousins, they’re ideally sized to hold an ornamental tree for a year-round breath of fresh air.

4. Charming Chintz
As any arrangement of flowers reveals, a mixed bouquet is often the most beguiling. Here, a set of dining chairs is updated with mismatched floral prints for a result that’s part old-school elegance, part new-school nonchalance.
