If you love order and symmetry try displaying several of the same plant in rows to multiple the impact to the wall and space.
- To magnify the impact of indoor plants, you can reflect the pattern in textiles and wallpaper, as we demonstrated here. There are only a handful of plants in this room, but it feels like a green oasis in your space.
- If you are not feel like maintaing indoor plant then the ideal choice for you is low-maintenance cacti and succulents indoor plant. Easy to care for, slow-growing and fun to arrange, you can create endless mini worlds inside a glass jar or terrarium to add colour and life to a shelf or table.
- We think that plants work well as a living element within a static display on a bookshelf.
For an elegant library feel, choose a trailing plant, such as English ivy, and tuck a few pots between stacks of classic paperbacks. Place them high up and let them twist and tumble down from shelf to shelf.
Alternatively, potted plants, such as cyclamen or geranium, add a more formal air to a display.
- Rather than dot a few plants here and there around your home, grouping them all together in one room or corner can be much more effective.
A mix of heights, styles and leaf types can create a mini jungle effect that has real impact and feels fresh and inviting. Tuck a reading chair into the corner and make space for a drink and a couple of books to carve out a little haven in your own home.
- If you’re keen to have houseplants in the bedroom, you’ll probably want to choose one of the night-time oxygenators. As the name implies, this is a little group of power plants that release oxygen at night, so can help to keep the air healthy as you sleep. Perfect for a bedroom, orchids look as beautiful as they are useful.
