I’m one of those who believe that plant life can brighten up the ambiance in any room.  Having indoor plants is much more than just a hobby for me, it’s a lifestyle.   My collection particularly grows during the spring months as I feel encouraged by warmer temperatures and inspired by new growth.  I am encompassed by design in my daily life, so I’ve found that using natural elements is my favorite way to adorn my surroundings. 

Plants, by design, are a natural stimulant and can immediately elevate your mood.  So, by including them in your day to day, you not only enhance your space, but you also create a sense of wellness.  At times, it’s truly calms my soul.

Using plants in modern design is even more of a challenge because modern design seems to demand clean lines and simplicity. Nature, on the other hand, tends to be wild and chaotic. However, that doesn’t mean modern interiors need to forego greenery. There are ways to make it work and bring plants into the design as a creative layer that is equally as important as the other accessories in the room.  Indoor plants not only make your living space more inviting and luxurious, they also make your home’s air healthier. Check out some of our favorite ways to freshen up your home décor with a touch of green.

It’s no secret that I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with plants lately. After taking a good look at my interior and realizing that multiple areas of my home are a bit bare, I’m convinced that a few houseplant purchases will help breathe new life into my living room, bedroom, dining room, and powder room.
