If you can’t afford a mid-century house for yourself, why not treat some of our animal friends to a stay in one with these Bug and Bird motels from the Thoughtful Gardener.
As you may know
bug hotels are a way of encouraging all the pollinator and decomposer insects you want in a healthy garden. It’s a sign of its retro style that this one has been named a
bug motel. And, as well as doing good, it’s hard not to admire the wooden slanted roof and
door of the motel echoing the forms of mid-century architecture.
In addition to the motel, you can also buy a slightly more conventional — but no less stylish — bird box. It’s also made from wood, with a slanted roof, and using the same bright colours.
