Engaging Nature in Your Interior Setting
Plants have the ability to add a touch of intimacy and comfort in our homes, helping us relax and release all the pressure. They can be easily drawn within a home interior design, either to emphasize the most important spots or to hide the shabby corners that you want to keep off focus.
Since nature has come back to life and we all need a boost of energy, Adesignerspot gathered some suggestions on adding a touch of color and style to your home.
Each room needs a focal point to jazz up the atmosphere. While some of you may think of a piece of furniture, a colorful painting or a large accessory, we suggest using a wide plant or an arrangement of various species, colors and sizes. You will immediately acknowledge the benefits and the major part played by natural elements both outside and inside your home.
Using natural plants in your inside décor can be multipurpose. For instance, if the view out the window is gloomy, place some flower pots across the sill and you’ll see how the focus is no longer on the outside scenery, but on the inside plants.
Having some blank walls and absolutely no idea how to decorate them? Place some shelves at different heights along the wall and lay out different size flower pots, baskets, vases, bowls or whatever recipient comes handy in order to make beautiful arrangements that will completely change the setting. Keep in mind, though, that every plant has to be taken care of in its own way, therefore check on some experts’ suggestions before planting them.
You should know that, besides the decorating part, some plants can purify the air you breathe in your home – species like Yucca, Ficus Benjamina, Ivy, Spathiphyllum and various ferns and palms are both aesthetic and curative.
If you feel inspired, decorate according to the season outside. Spring plans, such as irises, Amaryllis, tulips or daffodils can refresh you interior décor. Summer plants are colorful, refined and elegant: carnations, chrysanthema, freesia, ginger, gladioli. During the falls, you can place seasonal plants like Japanese anemone, Bluebirds or polar stars that impress not only with the beauty of their flowers, but also with a colorful leaves bouquet. The winter season is extremely festive, so complement the Christmas tree and the candle arrangements with Poinsettia pots, also known as “The Christmas Flower”.
