What is more inviting than the serenity and fresh look of a roomful of lush green plants? To get the most out of the great looks your plant babies bring to your home, they need to be displayed stylishly. Done well, your plants will not only freshen the air but freshen your home’s interior motif.
Show your houseplants a bit of love and your home a lot of style with these five simple tips to make your plants look fantastic.
1) A fresh new look for the boudoir
The bedroom should be a place that encourages not only sleep but a calm place to wind down from the day's events. Pack it with a nice variety of plants, add an aroma diffuser and some lovely lighting and you have an oasis that’s just for you.
Kelsey DeLange of The Honey and the Hive website recently updated her bedroom space, adorning it with heaps of gorgeous plants. And she used some of our most beautiful planters to do it. Kelsey goes for a fun, luxe vibe when it comes to her plant styling and we are impressed with how she pulled it all together.
2) Plants in the kitchen
A kitchen looks so inviting decorated with strategically displayed container plants. Placed on a windowsill, they make the entire room seem fresh no matter how many dirty dishes might be in the sink.
One good choice to contain your plants and create some flexibility is the Woodmont trough tray. It’s such a functional piece. Place your potted plants inside it, and the vintage metal handles make it easy to move around to catch the sun and gives your kitchen a modern farmhouse look.
3) Plant stands
For a real eye catcher, present your plants in a décor accent meant exclusively to showcase them. Spruce up that neglected corner by the window using an attractive raised plant stand. Kate and Laurel offers several variations that hold many plants or can highlight one gorgeous one.
The Fields Tri-Level plant stand, made of durable metal and rustic wood, has a graceful triple-tiered design creating the perfect combination of function and decoration.
Planters don’t have to be just for the floor. Paired with your favorite plant and hung from a ceiling, the Opyd hanging planter will look great anywhere in your home. It'll add a burst of style to a room, instantly changing the atmosphere for the better.
4) Planter Sets
All good things must come in two! Planter sets create a fantastic style and will give your indoor plants a unified look that blends well with their surroundings.
The distinctive weave of the Paynter Planters has all the appeal of rattan but none of the fragility because it’s made of a lightweight PVC material. The metal stands not only add to the overall appeal but also make them very practical.
Fill and transform an empty wall space with the urban, modern look of the Ginnis wall pockets. These containers are eye-catching, functional wall decor that has multiple uses — ideal for brightening up dull plain, walls with your favorite flowers, decorative greenery or air plants.
5) Plants on Trays
You don’t always have to go to a traditional planter. There are many other options that will show off your plants and upscale your home décor. A beautiful tray styled with a few small accents and a surprising hint of nature makes a fabulous display. If you’re going for a casual, traditional vibe, you’ll want to consider a more natural wooden tray. If instead, you’d rather go full-on glam, a beautiful mirrored tray will create a glamorous feel.
Constructed of metal and mirrored glass with a metallic leaf finish, the Ciel tray is big enough and glamorous enough to display a cute collection of plants in modern luxe style.
Plants and books are a natural combination. Together they bring a handsome aesthetic and an intriguing assemblage. The natural brown wood of the Hutton tray gives a warm feel and, of course, can be used for so much more!
With all these looks, adding indoor houseplants to your home will be much easier than you thought. But don't worry if you don’t have a green thumb but still want the vibrant feel of plants in your home. There are plenty of easy to follow plant blogs out there to help you keep your plants healthy and lush. (We like Genre Green for her very knowledgeable and approachable voice.)
So now it’s up to you to turn what might be an understated group of house foliage to an enchanted green wonderland. Happy decorating!
