Do you have a bland indoor or outdoor space that could do with some cheering up? There’s no better way to lift a boring space than to bring a bit of nature through potted plants. Houseplants are making a resurgence! They’re no longer the faux looking office plants that sat in the corner of a room. Today they’re a sure-fire way to transforming any dull space in the nick-of-time!
Check out these chic ways to bringing a natural feel to your home whilst also adding that artsy vibe!
1. Creative Crockery
Tired of plain terracotta pots? Why not transfer your foliage to unique ceramic urns or vases. Go oversized or fill in space with moss. You could also choose any interesting or quirky shape so it doesn’t look like a boring potted plant.
Another fun and practical design are the Boskke Cube planters, which are completely transparent, letting you see more of the plant including its incredible root system. The other ingenious part of this design is the ‘Slo Flo’ watering system. By topping up the reservoir with water, you only have to water your plant once a month, and it has a steady supply to keep it healthy –perfect for the slack plant owners! Indoor gardening is made mess-free and less time-consuming!
2. Sculpture Garden
Opt for interesting, geometric plants such as succulents and cacti to create your own little garden indoors with an assortment of textures and colours. They’re also low maintenance, which is always a plus!
3. Tiny Topiaries
Topiaries are classic, elegant and a little too big to have indoors. Lucky for us, they come in miniature sizes and look fabulous on a galvanised tray. If you prefer the clean look, but don’t want them to be stiff why not let the topiaries grow a little wild for an organic, polished feel.
4. Indoor Vertical Garden
Turn a succulent or low-growing indoor garden into a work of art by placing it on your wall. Vertical gardens are extremely trendy and come in a variety of colours that make the garden seem like a 3D piece of art. Another upside is that the plants only need to be misted with water once a week so you won’t have to worry about any damage to your wall.
Here is a wall hanger that will look smart both indoors and outdoors.
5. Oversized Plants
Bigger is sometimes better! If you want to add some greenery to a room but don’t want to care for multiple plants, choose a large potted tree, maybe a fiddle-leaf fig or palm. Let it grow out into the room and create an indoor jungle vibe.
6. Terrarium gardens
Terrariums (like Bonsai Trees) are basically a full-fledged garden, but in a more manageable size. The combination of plants, colours, containers and sizes are endless. So grab one or a few to create an impressive terrarium collage that will sure to create an appealing atmosphere.
7. Driftwood plants
Why choose the traditional pot when you can opt for a driftwood planter for an fabulous feature. These are great for planting moss or air plants like hibiscus. It also makes a beautifully natural container for your plants and stands as a piece of organic décor on its own.
8. Stand Tall
Turn ordinary potted plants into works of art by placing them in clusters on different levels using stands, benches and shelves. This adds a spur of whimsy and visual interest than keep the pots on one monotonous level.
9. Pocket plants
Keeping in tone with the whole ‘you-don’t-need-an-actual-pot’ to pot plants, we suggest a clever and fantastic alternative. If you have a vintage apothecary or even a small cupboard you no longer need, make them feel as though they’ve been sitting there forever by placing plants in a few of the drawers. This is a unique way to display plants that’ll accentuate your piece’s vintage charm!
