It’s such an obvious way to accessorize your home that in a bid to get your space updated with the latest and coolest home decor products, you may have missed the forest for the trees, in a manner of speaking. That’s right, we’re talking about plants. Absolutely natural, and a quick and easy option to spruce up your space, floral arrangements done just right can be the thing to elevate your home or workplace from predictable to eclectic. Not to forget the value that plants add in providing oxygen and ‘improving’ the environment.
On the dining table
Beautifully cut flowers of different varieties make for the pretty addition at the centre of the table, but make sure you avoid using tall flowers in equally tall vases. It could hinder conversation–unless that’s the plan! A short squat vase is ideal. You could even opt for flowers floating in a bowl of water.
In the living room
It’s the most public area of your homes, so it would be reasonable to assume that you would want it as gloriously decorated as possible. Enter flowers. You can put them absolutely anywhere–in the centre on the coffee table, unobtrusively on a side table or as a statement piece
In the bathrooms
That’s right. The bathroom. It may not be the first place you think of for flowers right? But there might be some merit to the suggestion.
As a room divider
This can go tall, like a shelf, or short, like a low-slung, subtle partition between spaces in case you have an open-plan house.
As wall art
Wondering if you can find an option for art to adorn your walls? That’s easy, just go with plants. Either go with a vertical garden indoors, or a single potted plant on a wall.
In a corner
If there is a corner of your space that doesn’t lend itself to anything much, an interesting, oversized plant, perhaps in a bright pot will hit the spot.
As a collection
Extra-small terrariums arranged in a glass bowl give you the perfect out if you’re looking to accessorize on a small scale. Get a collection of such miniature gardens to landscape your interiors.
