Want to give your home a fresh outlook but can't quite figure out how to? Well, we know what your house needs and what can transform the aesthetics as well as the living quality of your home. Your home needs some natural elements incorporated into it, i.e. some green plants and trees. Believe it or not, interior designers are referring to residential greenery as a big story of the year.
Green plants and trees are the best and most inexpensive way of incorporating natural colour and glamour into your home decor. They bring beauty, character, texture, depth, style and panache to where-ever they go.
However, it goes beyond just the aesthetics - these "living" decor elements scrub the indoor air and the air surrounding your home, absorb harmful chemicals, regulate the humidity in your space and makes it more fresh and serene. Thus, residential greenery marries lively interior decoration with wellness which is all the rage these days.
Greenery can be accommodated in any space - from elegantly designed interiors to minimalist spaces and from front porches to backyards. In fact, this is a great way of counteracting the negative effects of city life.
1. Incorporate longer indoor plants into a lavishly designed space as your standout living artwork
If you think that your space is too lavishly designed and elegant for natural elements, then you must think again. The above living room has been designed extravagantly with furnishings capable of being artworks themselves. From a majestic black piano and a spectacular center table to subtle colours of the wall and carpet - you may think that it couldn't possibly need anything else. But that long plant incorporated in the corner of the room and some small ones cleverly placed on each side of the mirror definitely brings out a different dimension of space and adds a fresher and more charming vibe to the room.
2. Indoor plants can bring about a natural pop of colour in a minimalist and colourful interior
Plants can be cleverly inserted into minimalist interiors to make them more aesthetically pleasing and add another natural edge to the colour tone of the space. The living room in the picture above is a space designed with pops of different colours complementing the wooden furnishings. The whole look is integrated by the plants incorporated on either side of the main couch bringing a fresher texture to the entire ongoing colour theme. They stand out as the decor elements incorporating a natural vibe into the space.
3. Turn your large balcony into a seating area with peaceful greenery around
Everyone wishes to have a small garden-like area in their home. But unfortunately, the urban lifestyle in small apartments is not blessed with enough space to make that wish come true. However, if you have got a large balcony, you can easily convert it into a green space to spend some private time alone, with family or a friend. In the picture above, a balcony with a decent amount of space has been turned into a beautiful green seating area with wooden panels and black chairs. Underneath the chairs, green grass has been used to act as a natural carpet that is just beautifully green and lights up the entire idea. And the potted plants nearby is a reward to the space.
4. Greenery can be cleverly incorporated even in a small balcony
Even if you have got a small balcony, you need not worry. It can surely become something as sweet, simple and refreshing as the picture above. All you need is to be clever about your use of the available space and you can turn your tiny balcony into a spectacular area with just a few plants, a table and a chair. For that extra hint of colourfulness and natural drama, we suggest you pick plants with bright colourful flowers to add more eye-catching vibrancy in your little zone.
5. Be greeted with beautiful lush greenery every time you enter your Home
Another great idea is to adorn the entryway to your home with serene lush greenery, as shown in the picture above. The entryway to your home is what sets the tone for your interiors. You can place lush green potted plants in the way leading up to your door and line your entryway with heaps of greenery to let the beauty and serenity of nature welcome you and your guests. Such fresh, natural and green plants will instantly lighten up your guests' mood and make them happy to have visited you generating a sense of happiness and healthiness towards your home.
