There is quite a big difference when you step into a home that has greens, and when you step into a home that doesn’t have any. Of course, it is also a question of preference and what look or vibe you are going for – are you more modern, minimalist, and prefer cooler colours and materials? Or are you leaning more towards earthy tones, brighter colours, and the use of warm materials?
Everyone has their own taste and style when it comes to interior designing, and plants may not be for everyone. But to me, a home feels warmer and more welcoming when there are some greens around. It somehow ties all the elements together and creates a harmonious atmosphere. It adds that nice pop of colour and automatically makes a space feel more cozy.
If you have the space, a tall floor plant in the corner of a living room could be the accent you are looking for. But don’t fret if you only have room for table arrangements. Even a small touch of green can do the trick! But finding the right plants for your home can be a challenge, especially in this hot and humid climate and when you live in a condominium that doesn’t get a lot of natural daylight!
As I am preparing to move into my new place, I have started doing research myself on local plants that work well indoors and that last long. I have gotten in touch with some plant experts, and made a list of some of the best plants that you can find locally for your home.
