If You Don’t Have a Green Thumb, Use Dried Plants for An Elegant Accent

If you, like I, have a hard time keeping plants alive, take this factor out of the equation. Dried herbs and plants are quickly becoming a favorite among interior designers. It gives the fullness and life that live plants do, but without worrying about watering them. The hanging method looks like something straight out of the whimsical visuals of Practical Magic. If you’re someone who loves to stay in the kitchen, opt for dried herbs hanging above an island for magazine worthy aesthetics.

Apartment Study Area 

Some of us live in high-rises where there isn’t enough space to put a bunch of plants. But one way to display some simple plants is to make a study nook in the corner and then fill it with some beautiful plants. You can add a desk to the window to look out and see the beautiful world below. From there, you can include a bookshelf, which can have sprawling plants and valuable knick-knacks. This plant styling idea is a way to craft a beautiful, unique study space bursting with green life. People who feel like their apartment is lacking will love this one. It’s a great way to get motivated and excited, whether you’re using the space to work or to study.

Plants, Step Right Up!

We’ve talked a couple of times in this article about staggering plants, placing them on various levels, and so on. But this particular designer went with varying heights in a staircase manner. From desks and ladders to high shelves, you could practically climb from one surface to the next. Every top surface on this wall is covered in plants, and from the left, it gets higher and higher on the wall. Almost like steps. This design element creates a natural line for your eye to follow. And, overall, it’s visually appealing. Notice that the designer also puts a fun kitchen poster so you can use your various edible plants for smoothies and healthy drinks.

Everywhere You Look is Plants, Plants, Plants!

This plant idea is an indoor garden that’s a feast for the eyes. It’s simple: you take a neutral space, and then fill it with plants of all kinds. This design will have you practically frothing at the mouth to make it your own! You can use plants of all kinds. While this one shows off a variety of cacti, there are tons that you can use, putting them all around and proudly displaying them in all sorts of ways from the ceiling to the wall and floor. Having your plants up high can protect them from pets. You’ll see that this designer also opted to use stools, plant stands, shelves, and ledges to make plants stand out. If they were all just pots on the floor, it would not be nearly as visually interesting.
