With so many options, styles and trends to choose from, sometimes it’s best to keep it simple. The trend that never goes out of style is the natural approach of decorating with plants.
Using plants for your interior is an easy way to add some natural beauty to your home, and it provides an affordable decorating solution that is easy to change up with the seasons and your moods. Plants also have the advantage of positively influencing the health of your home, thanks to their natural ability to cleanse the air of toxins and improve the content of Oxygen.
Plants have been used for hundreds of years. Their beautiful colors add a sense of life and vibrancy to any location and make them perfect for creating a welcoming, inviting home.
Consider the following tips before you start:
Stick to the style
Style is the number one consideration when decorating with plants. You may have found the most gorgeous greenery you’ve ever laid eyes on, but if it clashes with your home’s décor, it’s going to do more harm than good.
For example, if your home has a very modern design; look for plants with solid colors and clean, straight lines. For someone with a ranch style home, some cacti or other prickly plants would be a good choice.
Get the right planters
If you plan to use plants around your home, there’s a good chance you’ll be placing them in some planters. And just like the plant should match your home’s decor, the planter should too.
Think stainless steel boxes for ultra-contemporary settings and classic Roman vases for more traditional homes. And don’t just let your planter be the place where your plant lives.
Good examples include lining a front walkway, using them at each corner of a patio, or using them to frame something, like two small trees on the front porch of your home framing the front door.
Use plants inside and out
Remember to use your plants both inside and outside the home. Don’t limit yourself to specific areas – every part of the home can benefit from a little plant life.
Add a philodendron or two around the bathtub and it’ll start to look more like a spa.
If your patio’s looking a little bare, clear out a corner and add a water feature with some native plants and flowers in small decorative planters around it. It’ll make a feast for both the eyes and the ears!
Place plants Appropriate Placement
Finally, remember to place your plants appropriately, both for aesthetics and plant health. For aesthetics, if something doesn’t seem to mesh, don’t do it just for the sake of being different. You may consider it unique, but your guests may consider it a total dud.
On the health side, be sure your outdoor plants are safe in bad weather and your indoors plants are placed so they can get plenty of sunlight, if applicable.
Using plants in home decor has never been easier
Plants have been one of the most popular ways to decorate ever since… well, ever! And it’s still that way today. Vibrant, green plants bring a sense of life and happiness to the home, creating a welcoming environment for all who enter. In the end, isn’t that what we’re all striving for? Happy planting!
