Whether real or fake, incorporating plants into your home can be such a great way to bring life into the space! Adding something living (whether it’s actually living or not), truly makes a space feel more alive. I love the fresh energy I feel in a room with plants. I’ve talked in previous blog posts about the importance of bringing the indoors out, but these plant decor ideas are such a great way to bring the outdoors in!
The types of plants you use are a completely personal choice. Personally, I tend to lean towards neutral plants with a lot of greens. Seasonally, I like to use warmer earth tones like plumb or a deep red in the winter and pale purples (I love listeria or lavender) in the spring!
Just because I love neutrals doesn’t mean everyone should stray from color! If you have a fun and bold style, colorful plants would look great inside your space. Today, I’m talking about five ways to incorporate plants into your home decor!
Anchor a Corner
Using a larger plant in a corner is a great way to draw the eye to that corner of the room. In design, there should always be a hierarchy. By that, I mean that there should be SOMETHING dominant that immediately draws your eye in.
When everything in a space captures the same amount of attention, it can be difficult to decide where to look first. If you were to put some kind of tree in the corner of the room, it draws your eye to that corner and then your eyes will flow throughout the room from there, effortlessly!
