Bringing The Outdoors In!
Plants have been a prominent feature of interior design for centuries. They make spaces more inviting, bring that all-important organic quality to a room and are all the rage! There are so many ways to incorporate plants into a design so they enhance the objects around them.
Okay, you may be thinking, I’m not a green thumb. It’s okay, we’re not either! Others of you may be thinking — I’ve been there, done that…. with the old dusty ficus tree or the overdone floral arrangement as the table centerpiece – both of which landed in the spring garage sale! Take a look at these images and see how you can rethink your indoor plants in a fresh new way!
Try adding some permanent “faux” greenery — think palms, ferns, grasses or even a bamboo plant. Add a colorful, bright orchid (fresh or faux) to your cocktail table, or place an interesting succulent on top of a stack of books on a bookshelf. Trees and taller plants can be great solutions if you are looking to add height to a room or fill an awkward space.
You can never go wrong with fresh flowers from your garden (or in our case, supermarket!) Just remember to keep the water fresh, cut stems at an angle and remove all the leaves below the water line.
We like to think of this look as “Tropical Glam”. Palm fronds definitely add a fresh statement to a room. Adding a few stems to a decorative glass vase with narrow opening is a great accessory for a bright interior.
Nothing says “Welcome” like a beautiful orchid. Add a touch of garden-inspired elegance to your decor. This “pop-of-pink” brings interest to an otherwise neutral room.
Fresh flowers are a quick way to add color and life to a space that otherwise lacks warmth. Especially in a kitchen this fabulous.
We love seeing greenery in any room, even the bathroom. Not only is it simple and effective, it’s a way to connect with the outdoors.
