How To Decorate With Plants

Beautiful plants in varying shades of green can help to transform a space.  They are a wonderful way to bring a bit of nature and the great outdoors inside.  House plants are also a very economical way to accent the decor in your home.

Using large potted plants to fill an empty space beside a sofa or on a shelving unit can not only add a sense of warmth and texture to your space but also provide an item of interest at little cost.  The plant and pot on this shelving unit only cost $20 at Walmart.  A sculpture, piece of pottery or display of knick knacks could easily cost twice as much.

Choose plants that have an interesting pattern, shape or texture.

Coordinate house plants with your decor by potting them in containers that suit your colour scheme.

Use interesting containers to pot your plants.  Here I have used a coffee mug to add interest to this display.  Other containers that I have used in the past include:  tin buckets, wicker baskets, ceramic bowls, fruit bowls, pottery jugs, jars and cups.  As long as you place a layer of small pebbles or rocks at the bottom of the container for drainage you may use just about anything to pot your plants in.

Succulents {pictured above} and cactus are great plant options for those who may not have had luck with other plants in the past.  They are very low maintenance.  The butterfly plant {the first photo above} and mother-in-laws tongue {what a name hey? lol} plant are also hardy options for newbie indoor planters.  Be sure to choose plants that are safe for small children and pets too.
