How to incorporate plants into your home decor

Nature is part of our lives. We admire it, we take care of it, sometimes we curse it, but we always try to get closer to it. Incorporating plants into your home decor is a way of bringing nature inside.

One indoor plant per room

How about a little challenge? Try adding some greenery to each room in your home. Plants go well in any room, whether it be the kitchen or living room, bedroom or bathroom. Just check how much natural light these rooms get and choose your new green friends accordingly.

Some plants don’t even need that much light to thrive. Read our article on 5 plants that require minimal light to find the ideal plants for your darker rooms.

Go big in the corners

It’s not always easy to find something to furnish the corner of a room. A large indoor tropical plant will add a healthy dose of greenery and dash of panache. It will bring some life to an empty corner while also adding height to that space.

Our suggestions: yucca, bird of paradise, miniature date palm or split-leaf philodendron (Monstera deliciosa).

Macramé and green plants: a natural combo

Macramé has been making a comeback for some time now and pairs perfectly with indoor hanging plants.

If you lack floor space, a hanging or wall-mounted planter will add some greenery and style to your decor. The extra height will give your plants better access to light and the macramé will bring that boho touch. Adding some colour and style to your life has never been easier!

Our suggestions: string of hearts, English ivy, donkey’s tail or arrowroot.

Try new pastures

Your new plant only wants one thing: to live. So get creative!

A table or shelf is a classic option for indoor plants, but a stool, old chair or ladder will give your decor that personal touch. Replace a curtain with climbing plants? Why not! And don’t forget your window ledges. They’re the perfect spot for succulents or greenery of your choice.

In short, treat your green plants like art and showcase them in your decor.
