Decorating with Plants

When choosing a style of furnishing, color scheme, or fabrics for your new home, or when redecorating a room, plants often do not immediately spring to mind when considering what you need to complete your space. Plants can be, however, inexpensive and beautiful addition to any room, and there are a great number of options that can complement and even inspire any décor or ambiance. Not to mention the health benefits plants provide. 

How to choose what plants?

Health & Wellness: Many plants absorb harmful chemicals and regulate humidity. Some plants help clean the air. Indoor plants can improve air quality by creating oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxides, such as formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds. These harmful chemicals are found in most household cleaners and daily used products. Another wellness benefit of being around living plants is that they’re believed to help with creativity, productivity, and reduce stress.

Leaf Shape: There is a huge variety of leaf shapes to choose from when considering which plants are right for your room. Broad leaves look great on mantles or as part of larger arrangements, and long leaves can draw the eye up to interesting architectural features.

Leaf Texture: From spiky to glossy or fuzzy, you can get really creative when selecting a plant that has a texture that matches your space. A prickly cactus would really accent a room that has a southwestern themed décor, or the fuzzy texture of a dusty miller looks great in an entirely white room or as part of a holiday arrangement.

Color: With plants and flowers available in virtually every color imaginable, this is one area where using plants as inspiration for your wall color or accent colors can truly create a space inspired by nature.

Matching Plants To Your Space

What Kind Of Light Does The Room Get? While the size, texture, and color of your selected plant may determine whether it will fit into your ambiance, taking care that it will get suitable light and is placed in the correct spot will ensure that it will remain a vibrant and lasting part of your space.

Size Of The Space: Whether it is a large open-concept home or a cozy bachelor apartment, choosing plants that fit with the size of the room they will call home can make or break the success of any space. For large rooms consider using an arrangement of plants, or include large indoor trees. In smaller spaces, a few well-placed plants with interesting colors or textures can really add interest to your space without overwhelming it.

Whether you are choosing plants that match the atmosphere or using them as inspiration to reinvent your space, plants can be a beautiful, cheerful, and inexpensive addition to any home.
