// Tips for introducing greenery to your interior //
Introducing a little greenery indoors has become a very contemporary way of styling a space. We are not referring to a bunch of freshly cut blooms – we are talking adding plants to the interior that have longevity and can become part of your space as much as a piece of art or armchair – only to be disposed of when your commitment has dwindled.
1. No time for TLC? Do not fear –
There are an abundance of plants that will stand the test of time far longer than your green thumb permits. If you really need the sturdiest and most robust of all indoor plants – opt for a cactus or succulent as these require little to no water therefore can survive the most neglect. Not all are prickly and dangerous, if you have small children there are succulents that won’t prove to be a hazard indoors.
2. No room for jurassic sized plants?
There are ranges of plants that can be styled in numerous quirky ways because of their size. If for the coffee table or side table perhaps use a terrarium, or use ceramic or marble small pots to house your new friend. If needing a alternative that is small for placing in the bathroom, a maidenhair fern can really brighten and freshen the room!
3. Want your green friend to pack a punch?
One plant that is perfect for living spaces is the kentia palm. This is more substantial in size but can really add impact to a room. This talented plant is also perfect for removing toxins in a room and emitting moisture, really putting life back into a space. If your style is more minimalistic and/or monochromatic plants such as these can somewhat soften this look.
Prefer to think outside the box (or should that be pot…)?
One more style that is great indoors is to use a statement plant stand or hanging planter for real impact. Plants that suit these well are those that’s foliage will spill down such as the String Of Pearls plant or Silk Ivy.
You’re sick of looking at naked corners?
Not to fret, plants are the perfect way to stylishly clutter a bare corner. Groups of three to five medium sized plants at different heights, can really add a sense of an interior garden and fill up any space going to waste.
There are many benefits to reap from housing plants indoors. Not only does it add another dimension to your interior styling, we strongly believe it creates a positive mindset and energy in your space – which is what we really support at the Club. It also cleans the air - win, win!
So off to the garden centre for a happier, healthier, more stylish interior!
