The Indoor Garden: Plant Inspiration
Posted on 22 April 2015
There is something about a house plant that can connect all the dots within an interior space. It is the living accessory that changes, grows and has a connection with nature and the outdoors that many interiors miss. Whilst many of us are put off with the idea of looking after a house plant, in fear of killing it, there are so many varieties and options available to us that even the most incompetent people can welcome a miniature garden into their homes. Below are some innovative ideas in how to get creative with plants in the home.
Beautiful miniature plants, requiring little water with maximum sun exposure. Can also look great in groups hanging at different heights.
Hardy plants for the desk in a mixture of pots and finishes to create a rustic feel, looks great with different height plants.
Making the most of a kitchen wall, adding herbs from a utensil rack can add an injection of colour that can look customised with different coloured pots.
It is not just about the plant, let the plant run wild whilst using the pot as a decorating feature, matching it to other accessories in the room.
Getting creative with a vase and let the plant live in it, roots are a very fascinating thing that you rarely see, very artistic.
Using old vintage items such as an old coat rack and transforming it into a hanging garden feature. Mix, match and move plants around to create different looks.
Going for the oddly exotic and unique plants to catch the eye. These look fantastic next to a window, casting intriguing shadows across a room.
