Greenery adds a decorative touch to any room. Live plants are like a breath of fresh air, increasing oxygen levels making us happier and healthier. Plants also add color, texture, and style to your decor. Here are four simple ways to add greenery to your home.
Display on a Bookcase
The top of a tall shelf or bookcase is the perfect spot for greenery. Line different potted plants along the top of a bookcase. This smart, yet small addition will add interest and visual height to an ordinarily forgotten location.
Start at the End Tables
End tables are usually considered functional pieces of furniture reserved for lamps, remote controls, and other handy items. End tables make surprisingly special spots for a touch of greenery. Display a small glass terrarium filled with succulents or fill a tall vase with fresh fragrant flowers for a pop of welcome color. Greenery is also a welcome sight displayed on the floor by an end table, sofa, or loveseat.
Beautify Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the ultimate space for displaying greenery. Herb gardens, placed by the window or sink, for example, enhance your space while enhancing the flavor of your food. Display beautiful parsley, sage, and thyme to use in savory dishes or create a quaint and fragrant centerpiece with lavender arranged in vintage teacups or dinnerware.
Add some beautiful green plants to your bedrooms to design a healthier sleeping environment. Hang string lights around larger potted floor plants for a relaxing ambiance, arrange a grouping of smaller plants at the end of your bed, or create wall art by hanging old crates and filling each one with lush greens.
