Bring The Outside In: How To Use Greenery In Your Home

It’s 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, plants are a great way to revitalise your home. Fresh and inviting, it’s an easy way to inject personality and colour, and works especially well with clean, minimalist interiors.

Botanical trends have been popular as of late, becoming the centerpiece of many rooms, offices and quiet spaces. Offering a sense of relaxation, the addition of greenery in either plant, cactus or small tree form is the ideal way to maintain vibrancy in your home whilst the outside chills and withers.

For the wall…

Use a mounted wall box to hold your plant which together creates a seamless aesthetic sure to spruce up any bare spaces. Opt for a neutral shade to make your plant stand out, or clash with your room palette to create a centerpiece effect. Align in perfect height with your other wall hangings or decorations for a finished look.

In a vase…

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 can be placed everywhere from shelves and table tops to benches and bedside tables, breaking up a room’s colour palette.

On the floor…

Coffee tables and statue silhouettes have been overshadowed, both metaphorically and literally, by oversized plants and potted exotics. Whether they’re placed in the corner of a room or on the side of your hallway, they gain much attention become a maint decorative feature. Try a Peace Lily, Areca Palm Plant or a Zanzibar Gem in a potted indoor planter or stand…

 

To hang up…

Another option and way to bring the botanical trend into your home is through a hanging basket. No longer are these accessories tied to the outdoors; they create dimension, shape and excitement within your room space. Try hanging near doors or windows for a real botanical feel, or mount in a corner or bare wall space to refresh and revitalise your room.
