A touch of greenery in your home can create a big impression with minimal effort, so there’s little wonder indoor greenery has been so popular over the past three years. Anything from Fiddle Leaf to Cacti to the Kangaroo Paw Fern have sparked interest from those embracing the trend. With indoor greenery sales showing no signs of slowing, we have a few tips to bring more nature into your home.
An Indoor Herb Garden
Both visually pleasing and useful, an indoor herb garden can be small enough to be potted across a windowsill or a kitchen shelf and sheltered from the harsh sun, and majority of herbs will thrive indoors. Not only will it add a pop of greenery to your kitchen, you’ll have fresh herbs at your fingertips.
Green walls are the perfect solution for those who want to embrace every aspect of the environment. Why? This low maintenance indoor plant option helps reduce energy as a result of cooling the home, reduces noise levels as the plants block high frequency sound and act as a piece of art.
Sizes & Shapes
Vary the shapes and sizes of your indoor potted plants. This will create interest and form a feature in your room. Remember to group your plants in odd numbers and use interesting pots made from varied materials, textures and colours.
Fresh cut flowers not only bring nature indoors but also brighten the room, creates a lasting scent and with the right colours, can accessorise the space. Plus, you can update the look with fresh flowers in different vases and locations as you feel.
An indoor plant doesn’t have to be a potted plant on the ground. Scatter your plants around the room. From bookends for your bookshelf, a centrepiece for your coffee table or small pots for your windowsills, they draw the eye and can fill dead space in the room.
Don’t underestimate the effect a large plant or tree in your living room can make. Teamed with the right furniture and décor it can bring your room to life, create a calming atmosphere and be that statement piece you’ve been looking for.
