Making spaces better inch by inch.

Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place look beautiful! If you fall under the latter category, we are here to tell you how the gorgeous natural elements can become excellent pieces of your home decor!

Yes, we are talking about adding some alluring plants to your space! All of us know that adding plants can immediately bring the nature inside, making the room feel fresher and livelier. Not to mention, it does a great job filling awkward, empty spaces. Indoor plants can be used as accent pieces, to soften areas or even to create a certain expression.

But, using plants in a modern design can be a challenge because the contemporary design incorporates clean lines and simplicity. Nature, on the other hand, tends to be a lot wild and chaotic. However, there are certain ways to add the plants into the interior design as an elegant and creative layer. Plants are as important as other accessories in the space. Well-chosen and artfully displayed plants can enhance your home’s overall look.

1. Breathe a New Life to Those Empty Corners

Certain corners in our homes are not just fit for a piece of furniture. In such a case, you can just place a plant behind chairs. But remember to choose a larger size to fully occupy the whole space/corner. This is most useful when you have limited space thus making the room look closer and larger without being crammed full.

2. Hang them in a Style

If you have limited space in your home that you do not want to sacrifice that left space for a pot of plant, then hanging can be an alternative option. With the right choice of plant, it can even add colour to messy areas and give a delightful look. Succulents, Prayer Plant, Orchids, Baby tears, Ferns, English Ivy are such indoor plants to name a few.

3. Let Your Walls Speak the Language of Green

For a more grandiose and composed structure, why not try having a plant wall. This can be perfect for any bare walls in your space or walls of your pathway. Decide about the size, shape, space and proper environmental conditions for the plants.
