1. Transform a window. Create a striking mix of climbing plants and cut flowers that are in season. Make the most of the window height and combine hanging and standing vases for an eye-catching display.

Prolong the greenery of summer and get a lasting memory no matter what the season by pressing flowers! IKEA has a great selection of frames and display boxes for creating beautiful pressed flower still lifes.

3. Pimp a vintage lamp. Look for an old ceiling lamp at garage sales and update it using a mixture of artificial flowers and plants. Remove the shade and wind round your favourites in a lush and decorative blend.

Put seasonal flower arrangements into different pots. IKEA has a big selection! Match the colours of fresh-cut plants to form a beautiful arrangement.
