Decorating With Houseplants
5 Reasons to add more plants to your home today!
Plants add so much beauty and life to a home. No matter what personal decorating style you create for yourself, they really are a perfect addition to every home, and here’s why…
I love color! Being surrounded by lots of fun colors just makes me happy. Whether you share my love of color or you prefer it in smaller bits, plants are always an excellent way to add a splash of color to your home. Start by filling your home with gorgeous greenery. Sprinkle in a few colorful flowers, too. Orchids are a favorite of mine.
Relatively speaking, plants are a pretty inexpensive way to add lots of personality to your home. If you currently don’t have much in the way of décor, or if you just want to add an extra bit of style, plants are a super easy way to liven up your space for not a lot of money.
Be sure to mix up the sizes to keep things interesting. If all of your plants are tiny, it really isn’t going to do much for you. Mix in a couple of larger plants to add real impact. Palms, Ferns, Spider Plants, & Fiddle Leaf Figs are favorites of mine for making a big statement.
Plants are very sculptural. Walls, furniture, & even accessories are often made up of lots of hard lines & right angles. Plants help to add variety and create balance by adding a bit of softness & interest with their organic shapes. Add a large floor plant next to a big solid piece of furniture to soften the edges.
Connection to Nature
I’m a big believer in spending lots of time in nature. Getting outside, breathing in the fresh air, walking in the grass, feeling the wind and the sunshine on your skin, … there’s really nothing better. Bring a bit of nature inside your home by adding plants to your space, and keep those good vibes flowing.
Plants are not only beautiful, they can also clean the air and help keep you healthy. Gorgeous plants such as the Boston Fern & the Peace Lily are both known for their air cleaning abilities as well as their beauty.
