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. Relish the inspirational photos in the slideshow and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments!
