Interior Design - This is our way of crafting and curating the inside of the structures that we live and work in so that they are spaces that are comfortable and pleasing to us visually as well as physically.

A lot of that, creating comfort and pleasing aesthetic depends on the amount of the outdoors that we are able to bring in with us. We see this through love for rattan, wood furniture, stone finishes, and even animal patterns on rugs and pillows. These are all things that allow us to bring nature and its surroundings into our homes.

 

A big question we would often ask ourselves is which plants are right for our living spaces?

 

I say, include a healthy dose of plants in any and every room of your home Why? because beyond their aesthetic value, having plants in your home reduces toxins in the air, and improves air quality.

So where do you place these plants? here are some great tips on how to enhance your space through a simple approach to green living.

Floor Plants

You should always be looking for ways on how to bring plants into any space and starting from the floor up is not a bad idea.  

Plants as a décor accessory bring so much to our spaces even on the floor. It adds colour and texture but one of the best things about plants are the versatility that they offer in terms of scale. They can be small enough to accent a tiny desk or fit on open shelving, or they can be large enough to take centre stage on floor space. 

So if your office, your bed, or living room has a sunny corner that is empty a floor plant can be just the right solution. 

Plants are living things so, there are a few things to consider before turning your favourite room into a floor plant haven.

  1. Make sure there is proper lighting in the space. 
  2.  That the size and scale of the plant make sense in the room, a floor plant that touches the ceiling, while the rest of the furniture is low to the ground may feel like it is consuming the whole space, so consider a 6- or 7-foot plant for the home. 
  3. Small spaces, consider floor plants that sit low to the ground that come in around only 2- or 3-feet tall.
