Are you wondering how to give freshness to an ambience or do you think that a decorative item is missing from a corner of the room? Find out how to decorate with plants with our suggestions



Coming up with creative ideas to furnish your home can be challenging sometimes. However, if you love plants and are very skilful at taking care of them, you’ll want to have an entire home furnished with several different types of flowers.

Don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered with our few suggestions.

Bright Up Your Living with A Small Touch On Your Desk-console-table

If you’ve been wondering how to add a dose of freshness to your room, the answer is to bring in some plants.

All it takes is a simple Snake Plant to make your entire room look alive. Placing it on your desk-console-table for example can be a great way to turn an otherwise dull ambience into a fresh and green room. Snake plant can also be a perfect addition to your bedroom because it stores oxygen during the day, then releases it all at night. This plant will thrive in almost all light conditions, but try not to put it in a room without windows.  

Snake Plant requires very light watering, so you won’t have to worry if you forget to add a sprinkle of water to it every so often. All Snake Plant will require is a little dusting every now and again. Wipe the leaves to keep the plant’s pores free of dust.

Some other plants similar to Snake Plant that would be great for your home are Schefflera On Lava, Chinese Money Plant, and Succulent Plant.

Furnish That Corner with Green

Does every corner of your room feel like it’s missing a decorative item? A statue is too much and a chair is just not good enough? Plants are the best option.

Kentia Palm, for example, will look stunning in your hallway. Since it doesn’t like harsh sun, make sure the corner you choose for it is not next to the window. Kentia Palm will be happiest in any room that’s well illuminated and gets plenty of natural light, so it can also be a lovely choice for your living room. Light watering is all this plant needs. If you mist it regularly, that will prevent the dirt to accumulate, and your plant will be squeaky clean all the time.

Bird of Paradise, Musa ‘Dwarf Cavendish’, and Fiddle-Leaf Fig are also plants that you can consider for corners of the house.

Plants and Bathroom, In Humidity We Trust

Are you willing to bring a touch of colour and freshness into your bathroom? If you’ve always wanted a Zen-like ambience in your bathroom, Devil’s Ivy is the perfect fit because of its love for moisture.

This plant can withstand various light conditions so it will grow quickly anywhere. However, if you choose a brighter spot for it, it may start to grow more quickly. Devil’s Ivy is very simple to water. Just make sure you check the plant weekly and just give her a drink if the top two inches of soil are dry. To clean it, just wipe the dust off with a damp cotton ball or cloth every few weeks for a glowing look.

Boston Fern, Corn Plant, Asparagus Fern, Maidenhair Fern, Curly Spider Plant, and Hoya are plants similar to Devil’s Ivy that you may want in your home.

Hanging plants

Have you been spending hours in front of your bookshelf without finding the perfect way to revamp it? What if you add a hanging plant on each side of it, and make the shelf pop?

Variegated String of Nickels is one of our top choices of hanging plants that will make every home look majestic. It needs very little water, so it’s a perfect choice for everyone who’s not plant-savvy. Just mist it regularly and that’s it. Since it loves low light, Variegated String of Nickels is perfect for dimly lit libraries and offices. You can also feel free to hang it in a steamy bathroom or mist it a couple of times a week.

Plants similar to this one are Tradescantia Nanouk, Satin Pothos, and English Ivy.

Indoor Cactus Garden

Do you love to have all sorts of greenery in your home and you feel like plants can perfectly refresh the ambience? Then you’ll want Aloe Vera in your collection. 

Aloe Vera doesn’t like cold, so always keep it indoors at room temperature and away from draughts. Bring bright light to it, and Aloe Vera will flourish. Still, make sure it’s not in direct sunlight. Light watering is enough because its leaves hold a lot of water. Gently clean dusty aloe plant leaves with a damp rag. That will be enough to keep it clean and shiny.

Cactus Euphorbia, Cactus, and Sweetheart Plant are also great choices for an indoor cactus garden.

Bonus tip: for the best plant, you need the best vase!

For the bigger plants, you can go for EDG, Serralunga, or VG and find your perfect match. If you want smaller plants, then Venini, Seletti and Fornasetti have the best selection to cover the most different aesthetics!
