Style your home with indoor plant decor
Surround yourself with decorative plants and watch yourself bloom. Aside from making homes look pleasant, science says they boost well-being, reduce stress and help with creativity. Here are a couple of easy-to-do decoration tips – straight from our plant-loving interior designers and creatives – that will make your home a lush oasis in no time.
Group plants together to create an urban jungle
Create a lush vibe by placing a mix of plants on plant stands. A good rule of thumb for a visually pleasing arrangement: place larger, leafier plants on the bottom shelves or on the floor, and smaller ones on the upper shelves.
A truly evergreen wall
Create a lush vertical garden with – wait for it – artificial plants. Before you shake your head, think of it: they’re super easy to put together with a simple click, and can be used indoors or outdoors. Best of all, they don’t require a green thumb – no watering needed.
Minimal plant pots for maximum impact
Going for a sleek and minimal look, but still want plenty of plants? Then choose plant pots in the same colour – but in different sizes to fit your plants – to keep the look clean and elegantly tied together.
Flowers that are always fresh
Place tall-stemmed flowers and branches – that never wilt and never need water – in clear glass vases for a romantic look. Clear objects let light through and create interesting silhouettes when placed next to a window.
An ode to nature
Create an inspiring still-life setting with various plants and flowers in different vases and plant pots. To create visually pleasing layers, place plant pots in the back row on a pile of books. If you don’t have enough flowers, a good tip is to add artificial ones for a fuller look.
