Houseplants are an excellent way to add interest to indoor spaces, as well as freshness and a bright pop of color. Regardless of the season, houseplants offer more than just a way to bring the outdoors in; they can help to further accentuate your own personal design style. From small containers to tall potted trees, adding houseplants is an ideal way to add appeal to an otherwise drab interior. Learning a few key design elements can ensure that your indoor spaces are stylish, aesthetically pleasing, and welcoming to guests.

Houseplants and Interior Design

When it comes to finding houseplants that suit your style, there will be several growing aspects to address. Foremost, you’ll need to check the requirements for each type of plant and whether or not those needs can be met. These include factors such as soil type, light strength, temperature, as well as humidity. Space required for growth will also play a role in determining if a plant’s a good candidate for use in your home decor. While some specimens require quite a bit of routine care, there are several other easy-to-grow species that will thrive under the care of even novice gardeners. 

When selecting houseplants for my decor, I like to focus on plants with some type of unique characteristic. Choosing houseplants to match my style frequently includes finding those with large or particularly ornate foliage and/or flowers. These aspects naturally draw the eye toward specific places in the room, such as hanging artwork. Characteristics like shape, height, color, and form all play a vital role in the way in which the space will be perceived by visitors to your home. 

Everyone has their own design style, and houseplants are certainly no exception. With some planning, houseplants and interior design details can flawlessly work together to create memorable indoor spaces.
