There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors to fill your heart with joy! But sometimes it’s nice to stay snuggled up in the comforts of your home. We have a few tips and tricks to add hints of the outside to the inside by keeping it simple and gaining inspiration from plants, landscapes and general wildlife.
If you’ve been hiding under a rock or lost on an abandoned island, let us fill you in – cactuses have got big. Not as in they have suddenly become giant and are now a threat to the human race, as in they are trending BIG TIME. And we can see why. Versatile and cool, they fit into a range of interior styles and can instantly transform a room. They are also a perfect way to bring the outdoors in, especially for those that are lacking garden space. Another plus is that they are fairly undemanding in terms of care. A water here, a water there and that’s it. This might be a little testing for some people, sure. We've all been subject to the internal questioning of our ability to be a successful adult when we manage to kill a cactus that only needs to be watered once a month. Whether you’re a green fingered gal who’s the queen of plants, or someone that would rather their cactus be as plastic as Regina George, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover seven fun ways to bring cacti into your home (warning – all alternatives are super cute so be prepared to awww!)

You all know by know that we love the vintage look here at Sass & Belle. Many of our product collections have a real vintage, distressed or shabby chic look to them. What you may not know is that we’re also big fans of the upcycling trend, and we always jump at the chance to give an old piece of furniture a new lease of life when we are dressing our trade show stands and Sass & Belle shops, and also for our own homes. Better still is when we get to use own products in the process, particularly our great range of hardware.
