Bring The Outside In: How To Decorate With Plants


September 19, 2017

Plants are a quick and easy way to add a breath of fresh air to your home. With the urban jungle look as on-trend as ever, there’s no better time to invest in a little indoor greenery. Here are our tips and inspiration for making the most of your houseplants.



By Your Bedside

What could be better than waking up to a bedside brimming with plants? Mix it up by grouping varying shapes and sizes with contrasting pots for a more eclectic feel. Not only will a bedside nursery bring a calming quality to your bedroom, but adding certain plants can help you get a better night’s sleep. Try the hardy and lush-leaved snake plant, which removes air pollutants and produces oxygen during the night.



With A Window Display

Placing flowers or plants across a window makes for a simple yet eye-catching arrangement. Window boxes or shelves adorned with plants are a fun take on the trend. Then add a few hanging plants for maximum impact. Creating an eye-catching window display does require some careful selection. Opt for light-loving varieties such as cacti and succulents to keep your indoor garden looking healthy and fresh.



A Piece of Wall Art

Hanging planters can transform your space and make your plants the focal point of the room. Artfully arranged planters in different shapes and sizes make a bold style statement. With a ton of gorgeous planters on the market and even more DIY possibilities, you’re sure to find a planter to match the look and feel of your space.



Make Use Of A Bench 

Try elevating plants off the floor with a bench or cart to create your very own botanical feature. A little greenery is the ideal solution to brighten any empty surface. Add as many or as few plants as you like, depending on how much space you have to spare. Size-wise bigger is certainly better; try taller varieties such as Dracaena or palms to make the most of this dynamic look.



Pride Of Place

Shelves are another great way to display your greenery in a way that’s a little more uniform than a planter. Go all out and fill a shelf with plants, or add just one or two succulents to fill those awkward spaces. Either way, a little burst of green brings a beautifully fresh feel — especially against a crisp whitewashed wall.
