How to Use Greenery in the Home

A white living room with potted plants on the window sill and tables to show how to use greenery in the home.

Spring is the perfect time of year to incorporate a bit of greenery in the home – whether it’s a small plant on the windowsill, a cluster sitting on a bookshelf, or a large one taking up the corner of a room. Fresh and inviting, it’s an easy way to inject personality and colour into the home, and works especially well with clean, minimalist interiors.

This Swedish apartment uses greenery to great effect. Using a variety of plants and flowers in different sizes, pots and vases, the result is one that is natural and effortless rather than overwhelming. Plants are found everywhere from shelves and table tops to benches and bedside tables, breaking up the apartment’s colour palette of stark white, soft grey and natural wood.
