You can bring your home to life by introducing natural elements. House plants are one of the easiest ways to improve your living space and offer endless design potential. Pairing them with furniture and other design elements can enhance a room’s appeal. Use the following ideas as inspiration.
Ideas for Adding Plants to Your Home
1. Showcase Large Plants On Side Tables
Before you add a lamp to your new side table, consider a large potted plant like a dwarf palm or a pot of hanging ivy. When placed in a stunning pot, these can add much more character, and the green tones will pair well with both light and dark sofas and furniture. Try a prominent plant in the family room or something subtler next to a corner chair.
2. Create a Theme
Plants are perfect for creating a theme. Try a tropical design loaded with palms, wall-mounted planters, and hanging baskets. This is a popular approach to sunrooms and areas that receive a lot of natural light. Try minimalist furniture that’s lower-set and neutral-colored so it will blend in with the theme.
3. Create Dimension With Tall Plants
If you have boxy or low-backed furniture, you can add height and dimension with tall potted plants. A towering fiddle leaf fig or areca palm can be the defining feature in a room and pairs well with several furniture shapes and colors. Add the plant between a sofa and lounge chair or to the corner of the room to make spaces feel more open.
