Houseplants: Easy, Affordable Décor

| 11/9/2011 12:26:52 PM

Just because the trees outside are barren doesn’t mean you have to wait until spring to see green leaves. Adding houseplants to your home’s décor is a great way to enliven its interior without spending a lot of money. Houseplants offer more than inexpensive, lively décor: they can relieve stress, lower blood pressure and even clean the air inside your home.


Unsure where to best put plants in your home? Try these tips:

• Group plants together in a large, repurposed vessel for a dramatic look. Combine different shapes, sizes and foliage textures to create more visual interest.

• Soften the hard corners of tall shelves or empty ledges with trailing plants. Heart-leaf philodendron and pothos both have beautiful cascading leaves.

• Fill empty corners or long, linear walls with tree-form floor plants such as a palm, weeping fig, rubber plant or Norfolk Island pine.
