How to use plants to decorate your home


There is no denying that plants add immediate impact to a space.  Plants can be used to take up an awkward, empty space, and improve air quality by reducing toxins.

There are many ways to integrate plants and potted flowers into your home’s decor.  Even for those that feel they aren’t blessed with a green thumb.  In this post, you will see where plants can be integrated in your home and give suggestions for plants that are kill-proof!

Plants are as important as other accessories in the design space.  Well-chosen plants will enhance your home’s distinctive look and provide a sense of being connected with nature.

Indoor Trees – Living Space/Room

Fiddle Leaf Fig

Using an indoor tree is a great way to take some empty space in your home.  One of the most recognizable and my personal favorite is the Fiddle Leaf Fig.  This plant has great presence and fits very well with most decor.

Because of the leaf’s large scale it will not crowd a contemporary design.

It looks great in a basket or any other natural material container giving your space a well lived and harmonious feel.

Potted Plants – Bedroom

Snake Plant or Sansevierias is one of the easiest plants to take care of.  Most known for it’s lengthy tall green, slithery leaves.  These plants will look great in contemporary or traditional spaces.

Snake plant comes in a myriad of greens.  One that I recently found at my local nursery is called “Moonshine”.  It’s a beautiful unique silvery green with wide fin-like leaves.  GORG!!!

The Snake plant most importantly cleans air better than most other types indoor plants.  It has the ability to absorb excessive amounts of carbon monoxide, filters toxins like formaldehyde and emits oxygen.  That make this plant an effective defense against airborne allergies.

Because of these benefits snake plants can work very well in a bedroom, which in turn helps you sleep better!

Fruit Trees and Herb Gardens – Kitchen

What could be better than an endless supply of herbs and lemons for marinades and vinaigrettes?  Having a herb garden and a lemon tree will give you just that.  Not only do they add color and texture, they smell great too!

Dwarf cultivar lemon, Lime and Orange trees are best for yielding the quickest crop for citrus and will remain a manageable size. There are additional trees that can be grown indoors.  Olives and avocados are great choices!

The most common herbs in a window sill garden include:  Thyme, Rosemary and Basil.  However, there are many others that you can incorporate.  Herbs like Chives, Cilantro, Dill and Mint would be great additions.
