Have a creative side that needs to be fulfilled? Try creating a gorgeous mini harden that can live on a window sill. Succulents are perfect for this, but you can use any type of houseplants.

Teacup Planters

Your old teacups make perfect planters for small houseplants. Pick vintage cups for a beautiful addition of pops of color and patterns.

A Tall Plant

It’s almost impossible to avoid the boxed out feel in a room unless you do something about those edges. Tall houseplants are perfect at this because they will add depth instantly and soften the edges placed in any corner.

Place Plants in Corners

And if you do not care for a big plant which can be quite committing, put a smaller houseplant on a stool or a side table and place it in the corner.

Decorate with Orchids

Houseplants are great for your home decor (especially in spring), but orchids have a special place because they add elegance and they can last for months.

Houseplants on Every Window Sill

If your home has window sills, it’s a no-brainer to put at least one plant on every ledge yet it’s so often forgotten. And even if you don’t have the privilege of window sills, you can still place houseplants near the windows where there’s plenty of light.

Decorate the Kitchen with Fresh Herbs

Growing your herbs is not only healthy but has great decorative value if you use, for example, suspended wall pods.

Research Every Plant

Whatever you do, always research your plants before you bring them home. You have to make sure the conditions in your home are sufficient enough for any specific type of a houseplant to live.
