The secret garden
As those with little to no outdoor space know, a little greenery - especially as it starts to gets colder outside - can make the world of difference to the feeling of an interior and to your mood.
Something that adorns the windowsill of many kitchens, a herb garden can look beautiful and provide the finishing touch to many different dishes. There is something so satisfying about using something you have grown yourself. Find a container that fits your aesthetic - perhaps a wooden crate for a cosy French farmhouse vibe or a shiny copper container for something a little more modern. Lavender, rosemary and thyme all look beautiful and offer a delicate scent that will permeate throughout your kitchen.
A few tall, leafy green plants can create a beautiful, natural screen that will instantly divide a larger space into distinct zones. You may not have the space in your home to claim a whole room as your office but having a desk within your living room is not always ideal, making it difficult for you to switch off and enjoy your evenings without thinking about work. A few strategically placed plants can create the feeling of a separate home office within a larger, multifunctional space without having to invest a lot of time or money.
Lone succulents placed on a shelf never to be looked at again can look a little sad but there are other ways to incorporate succulents into your home; for example, a terrarium can be a perfect addition to a coffee table in a living area or a console table in an entryway. They are also a lot of fun to put together and can be a great project to undertake with children. Place in a warm and sunny location and your terrarium will add a splash of beautiful greenery to a room for a long time.
Quirky air plants
These unusual plants look unique and are not as difficult to look after as you many have initially expected, receiving all the nutrients they need through their leaves with no need for soil. They need to be misted with water daily from late spring to mid-autumn, but only once or twice a week for the rest of the year. Their adaptable nature means that you can get creative when it comes to placing these plants around your home. Find some beautiful glass containers that can be hung in a window and you will quickly have a striking and quirky design feature that you won’t be able to take your eyes off.
