I totally admit I do not have a green thumb. But I think house plants can make or break a room and I do have to buy new ones as I kill them off. So sad I know. I really do try to make them last as long as I can though. I think house plants are one of those things that just liven up a room.
Remember when I told you to go outside and find something to pop in a vase? This is that same idea. Plants just warm it all up. On Instagram I had announced that I had finally found a fiddle fig that was not breaking my bank account. I am happy to say she is still looking good and growing new leaves like crazy. I love fiddle figs because I think they are so architectural looking. Placed in this white pot from Ikea, I think she will grow nice and tall.
I was just talking to a client this weekend about getting some plants and putting them in some cache pots. I love this gold one I picked up for $5 at a thrift store. Clearing I don’t have issues with mixing metals as long as it is not every where. A touch here and there is actually nice and unexpected.
Though this guy is not real, I still love the look he gives our owl vase. And I actually think it looks pretty close to the real deal. Fake plants are obviously so much easier but I really hate the ones that look really fake. I pretty picky about using phony plants and you should be too. Nobody likes a fake!
I spruced up our bar cart too with a little fern. He is a little too small right now for this pot but when he grows soon this will fill out nicely. I paired this one with another succulent, because as I said before I think succulents go with everything!
So here are some quick tips on adding house plants into your home:
– select plants that are low maintenance like succulents
– go to thrift stores, antique shops and flea markets for cache pots and unique containers to place plants in.
– don’t be afraid to mix your metals to create dimension
– place them everywhere! Don’t be limited to your coffee table. Place them on the mantel, book case, side table, counter, etc.
