Matching surfaces inside house with those in a garden creates invitation to view the exterior as an extension of the home. Adding houseplants to the internal areas nearest the garden makes it easy to bring them outside. Architects refer to such practices as ‘Dissolving the boundaries between the interior and exterior spaces.
