You can’t fail to have noticed how popular houseplants have become again. Way back in the 70’s and 80’s they had their hay day, then seemed to die and a death, the only place to be found was on your granny’s windowsill!
Decorating with houseplants has become an easy and affordable way of adding interest to a room and making it look ‘finished’. Indoor plants are relatively low maintenance, they boost oxygen, clean the air and bring a sense of nature to your home. But even fake houseplants have made a comeback, with some very realistic ones being available.
Today I’m going to share with you some ways to incorporate plants into your decor easily.
On a shelf
Plants are a great way to add interest to a shelf – you can vary the height, cover the side of the shelf with a hanging plant or simply add a natural pop of colour.
Clusters are a perfect way to make a statement anywhere in your home. You can stick to one type of plant, like cactus, or a colour scheme with you pots.
Plant stands are an excellent way to make a feature of a single plant, like in the images below. There’s even a link for a simple D.I.Y version!
When I say space fillers, I mean huge plants to fill empty corners or divide rooms.
Heres a little montage of some of my house plants. Can you tell which ones areal and which are fake?
