An indoor courtyard is ideal if you don’t have good weather conditions or space outside or maybe if you wish to integrate a component of nature right inside the house. Such a courtyard is especially fantastic for a minimalist interior as it’s customarily deprived of plants or natural-looking pieces and materials, so greenery engenders a contrast. Make a pond with water lilies inside – it makes any space feel extremely relaxing and exudes an ambiance of Zen! Or maybe trees and bushes indoors? Yes, please! Just imagine how it feels to sip on a cup of tea and read a book under your own indoor trees! Another advantage of an indoor courtyard is that you can relish nature and greenery at any season as inside its always warm.
