Being out in nature and surrounded by plants and trees does wonders to clear your mind and helps to destress.
What if you were not able to get out much? Or you just love nature so much you can’t bear the thought of being inside? Well, that’s when you should think about decorating with plants to bring some of the outdoors inside.
You’ll get many of the mental health benefits of having plants around when you decorate with them and have lots of green around. Accentuate them with wood and you can really create a natural look to your home.
In this article, I will give you some ideas to decorate your home with plants. You’ll definitely need some Purple Flower gardening tips to keep them green as well.
If you love the idea of decorating with plants but don’t love the idea of taking care of them, then using succulents is a great option. They are so easy to take care of and require very little maintenance.
As a bonus, they are always very interesting to look at. With so many variations, you can use them in any manner of ways. As a centerpiece, they can be combined with rocks, wood, or shells to bring some life to a boring dinner table or end table.
Place them on shelves and in corners that need some green and you can sort of forget about them and they will still live for a long time. They barely need to be watered and can even thrive without much sunlight so you can put them wherever you like.
Wall hanging garden
If you have a wall that gets a lot of sunlight, then you can take advantage and place some plant hangers on the wall itself. If you have only a little space to work with, then this is an excellent option to take advantage of an area to bring green where you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to.
No matter what type of wall you have, you can place some planters by drilling into the wall and placing a hook. Then just get a planter that suits you and brings some style and put some small plants there.
An even better idea is to do this in a kitchen that gets a lot of sunlight as you can plant herbs there that can enhance your cooking while making the space look natural.
Wherever you have too much negative space, you can add a floor plant. It doesn’t even matter how much sunlight you get in that spot as there is a plant that can thrive in that particular setting.
If it is an area that doesn’t get much light then look into an evergreen like a Parlor Palm that will be fine if there isn’t much sun.
On the other hand, it may be very sunny there at some point in day so you’ll need to choose a plant that needs it. A ficus type of plant will look great with wide leaves and bring a lot of green to your home, but will do really well with that bright sunlight.
