Whether you are looking for health benefits or simply want to add a touch of elegance and natural appeal, more and more people are choosing to decorate their homes with plants. Plants are a great way to bring the nature of the outdoors in, add color, shape, and bring life into any room. Like artwork, plants are a powerful tool when decorating your living space and can be used as a major feature or accent pieces throughout your home. Here are a few styling and design ideas when decorating your house with plants.
One large plant as a focal point in a room adds height and drama. Instead of using several plants, prop one large plant or tree next to your sofa to spice up your living space. It can be a great conversation started and also give your living space the color it needs to create a more lively environment.
A Corner Collection
Clusters of plants work well in corners where nothing else really fits. Instead of leaving a corner of your room empty with wasted space, create a little cluster of plants, grouping various sizes, and shapes for a beautiful contrast. Succulents are a great plant for a corner collection to decorate your home beautifully.
Think of plants like organic mobiles that can fill a space with beautiful colors and bring some of that outdoor scenery inside. Using hanging plants is a great way to decorate small spaces as well since they don’t have a footprint. Macrame plant hangers are the perfect option for displaying your house plants and work well both indoors and outdoors.
Flower Bar Cart
Style a cart with gorgeous plants. Mix and match vase shapes and colors for a unique display while adding various heights for dimension. Fill the cart full and let it serve as a wonderful plant shrine in your home. Roll it from room to room to fit the mood.
Mounting your plants to the wall provides a clean and minimal tone to a room. This is a great way to add warmth and interest to your space and there are a variety of ways to do this. Consider a planter box mounted above your bed, sofa, end tables, in the hallway or even in the kitchen. Mounting your plants to the wall is a great way to decorate your home no matter what time of the year it is.
Flowers and plants are the perfect table centerpieces. They give your table a focal point, adds a lovely contrast to your dining display and really gives the space a comfortable and cozy vibe. Mix heights and add pops of color for a more vibrant decor feature.
