It is no surprise to any millennial that plants are in. The 2017 Pantone color of the year was Greenery and it had a big impact! Plants are great for designing spaces, whether outside or in, plants go everywhere!
Plants can evoke all of the feels and create different moods to help transform any space. They can also add pops of color, texture, and height. They are the most versatile accessory!
If you are a traditionalist, get a classic fern and plant it in a ginger jar to prop up on a fireplace mantel or shelf. For the minimalist, take a sprig or two of eucalyptus and stick it in a simple glass vessel. If you are like me and love color, grab some colorful succulents, put them in anything you can find, and display everywhere!
These guys are one of the absolute best ways to brighten up a space on a budget. Or, if you are like me, it can be fun to go to overgrown areas in town and take clippings to repropagate. Its free, and its an adventure! And don’t worry, I don’t mean the neighbor’s yard, don’t do that (without asking at least!). I’m talking parking lots, abandon spaces and parks.
In owning all my plant babies, I have learned a thing or two about keeping these dudes alive. It is hard at first but once you figure it out the same rule applies for most of them: light, water and fertilizer. My favorite interior plants are low light. I’ve found that my clients, no matter how bad you are at taking care of plants, can do it.
Aloe, Calathea, and Pothos are all low maintenance plants. They look very different and can be styled in so many ways. I don’t see this trend going away anytime soon, so embrace your green thumb and give it a try!
What is your favorite plant at the moment?
