Houseplants play a welcome role in creating a healthy, indoor home. Potted plants also
provide a lively atmosphere that can transform your room into a beautiful, green oasis.
Plant Groupings (left): Create a focus in your room with groupings of similar items.
Choose a selection of plants that require the same light; look for contrasting textures
of foliage. Keep container colors neutral or in one color to avoid a cluttered appearance.
Warm it up! (right): The large, glossy leaves of this Fiddle-leaf Fig really warm up this
neutral gray, Scandi-inspired interior. Create a playful balance with three elements: sofa,
painting and healthy plant.
Bold Shapes (above): The Split-leaf Philodendron (P. Monstera Deliciosa) or the 'Swiss Cheese Plant' adds
a strong, architectural shape to any room's design. The heart-shaped, glossy green leaves provide a textural and
tropical feel when paired with contemporary hardwood floors and neutral walls. This low maintenance plant
thrives in bright, indirect sunlight and also needs humidity and good drainage. If you can provide these items,
it's an easy plant to include in any room of your home or office.
Adding Texture: A delicate tree form such as an Olive or Weeping Fig can be the focal point of any space. Plants in basket containers add natural textures to a neutral-based décor. For best results, choose a plant that thrives with the true amount of light available in that specific room.
Palms: The graceful, palms adds softness and warmth to a bathroom space. Palms
thrive in bright, indirect light to lower light conditions. They also appreciate the extra humidity found in this environment. If you are looking for a larger indoor plant, palm trees such as 'Majesty' and 'Adonidia' are beautiful options.
Succulent Terrarium: If you have bright light, an open terrarium showcases the different textures and colors of low maintenance succulents. For those of us who forget to water our plants, a terrarium is the perfect solution to incorporate plants into your home or office. If you build your own terrarium, make sure you account for the container's lack of drainage with specific succulent potting mix, pebbles or gravel and charcoal at the bottom.
Pilea peperomiodes, (Chinese Money, Lefse or Pancake Plant): This perky plant is frequently featured in
Scandinavian interiors where its bright green, pancake-shaped leaves provide an adorable and welcome burst
of color against white walls. Water it sparingly and offer it bright light. This plant can be hard-to-find, so grab it when
you see it! Looks great in a grouping...
