Plants have become a trendy design element, and they’re a great way to freshen up a space. For St. Louis homeowners, they’re a simple addition that can really transform a room. So, what’s the key to decorating with plants? Let’s dive in:
Learn What Your Plants Need
The number one reason people abandon their efforts with plants is because they can’t keep them alive. All plants are different and they require different things. Try to learn about each plant you buy for your home so that you can give it the optimal conditions. Does it need to be right near a window? How often should you water it? If you’re not sure what kind of plant you have, there are several apps and websites that can help you identify your plant and learn more about how to keep it healthy.
Use Plants as Art
Some people wonder where to incorporate plants in their home. When you start thinking about them as art, it can make things a lot easier. The beautiful shades of green and varying shapes make plants very visually appealing. Big or small, plants can make a statement in your space. Thinking of them as art can help you get more creative with your placement and display.
Speaking of display, thinking outside the box here is important. Rather than just sitting plants on the floor or a table, why not consider your wall space as well? Maybe a succulent wall or several hanging planters could serve as a statement piece in your living room, for example. Don’t limit yourself to horizontal surfaces. Getting creative with walls and hanging options can help you incorporate more plants without it feeling cluttered.
Mix it Up
Combining a variety of different plants can really contribute to an eclectic vibe. Go for different types of plants and different sizes to make your collection feel artistic. Tiny succulents and air plants are perfect on a desk or in the window, while a larger tree might make your living room feel brighter. As long as the plants can survive indoors, mixing and matching your favorite varieties is a great choice.
Do you have many plants at home? How do you incorporate them? Do you think of them as decorative? What are your tips for other homeowners wanting to bring more plants into their homes? I’d love to hear what you think!
