Incorporating nature into your decor via plants is one of the best ways to decorate a home. Not only does it liven a space up, but it also adds beauty, freshness and whimsy to any room. Plants also offer numerous health benefits, including improved air quality, the reduction of stress and increased productivity. Here are some unexpected ways to decorate your home with them.
Make A Herb Wall
A great way to add a point of interest to your home and to liven up your kitchen walls is to add a herb wall, allowing you to have fresh herbs easily accessible while adding natural fragrance to your home. Simply plant the herbs of your choice into mason jars and then mount them to your wall (or place them on a floating shelf). This will also save you a lot of space in your kitchen! The outcome is very beautiful.
A nice alternative to the herb wall is a vertical garden.
Hang Planters From The Ceiling
Add a beautiful sense of whimsy to your decor by hanging planters from the ceiling. Add even more uniqueness to your decor by hanging your planter upside down and allowing the plant to hang through the planter. This is also a great way to save space.
Dig Out Your Vintage China
If you have china that is not being used, placing succulents inside items such as tea cups is a very elegant way to create a small indoor garden that is also quirky.
Go With A Classic Hanging Planter
Add beauty to virtually any room in your home by choosing a classic hanging planter, allowing your plant to spill out over the edges. Simply hang them from a ceiling.
Fill Up Your Kitchen’s Window Ledge
One of the best ways to grow herbs and succulents is to place them on your kitchen’s window ledge. They will receive a lot of sunlight, they are easily accessible and will add a lot of character to your kitchen.
Add Them To Your Bathroom Countertop
Adding a plant like a sansevieria to your bathroom countertop can add a pop of freshness while also giving your bathroom a spa-like feel. Another great way to incorporate plants into your bathroom is to mount round wall planters at different heights onto your bathroom wall.
Add A Fern To Your Night Table
Adding a leafy fern to your night table can transform your bedroom into an enchanting forest.
