Plants & Greenery
Adding simple plants throughout your home is such a great way to really bring a room to life. They give off a very lavish and lively vibe. They are also easier to maintain than flowers, and last longer so they are a better investment. The trick is deciding what kind of plants you like, will look best with your decor, and maybe most importantly, what YOU can maintain.
Using plants as accessories on shelves and tables is a great and beautiful way to fill space and make your other non-living accessories pop. Get creative with the pots and holders that you put them in. If you love a classic terra-cotta get different shapes and sizes of terra cotta pots and mix them with different types of plants. If you want a cleaner more modern look, choose a white or black pot. Love color? Colorful holders can tie your room together and bring your aesthetic to life in the small details. There is also the option of glass holders. Very on trend, this is a very interesting way to display your fave plants. Mix all your containers together if you want a bohemian chic vibe.
