One of this year’s budding home trends is a growing use of plants in home decor. The world has been crushing on cacti and succulents for a while, but the latest influx of leafy green varieties provides more than just style. NASA itself performed research on the ability of low-light houseplants to improve air quality and remove pollutants. Not only do these hard working decorations purify the air, but they add easy life and movement to any area.
Hanging planters in particular make an eye catching use of ceiling height. When filled with any variety of ivy, these planters overflow gracefully with greenery. Offered in an endless modern or boho varieties, these hanging pots can be tailored to your home’s design style to cultivate a cohesive design collection while introducing sought after shades of green into your color scheme.
Another way to grow your indoor jungle is by including diverse plant types. Small indoor trees can add height and texture to your space. We love this look, particularly when potted in woven baskets for an extra pop of neutral texture. With a look as cute as their name, fiddle leaf figs are arguably one of the most sought after plant types. These larger varieties are particularly helpful to create interest at higher heights in larger spaces, yet maintain a clean and minimalistic look due to their large leaves. Rubber tree plants offer a happy medium in offering both height and fullness, whereas snake plants come in small to medium sizes offering a bold and edgy shape that can stand alone or accent a table top.
All of these plants and more can be used to fill difficult to decorate corner spaces or stand alone as a focal point. Plants can be one of the more cost effective ways to decorate with the never-ending opportunity to switch various textures and tones without hurting your budget. Time to have a plant shopping spree and get the whole family involved in the potting and watering process. Both the memories and lively decoration can help your house feel like a home.
