Think Outside the Pot: 3 Ways to Decorate with Plants's featured image

Did you know just one glance at a plant can lower your heart rate? It’s true! Studies show the health benefits don’t stop there. According to NASA research, plants remove toxins from the air every 24 hours. Plants pull contaminants into the soil, where root zone microorganisms convert them into food. So, tempt your senses and bring the outdoors inside. Here are some inspiring greenery options to get you started:

1. A Splash of Nature 

No better place to stamp your décor aesthetic than your home’s empty corners. Moving large indoor planters into a dead space will look like a work of art. The motif is only limited by your own personal preferences. From galvanized steel to modern organic to a stylish mid-century design, indoor planters will radiate a healthy energy throughout the room.

2. Make your own Desert Oasis

Looking to spruce up a bookcase or kitchen island? Try something new. Cacti and succulents are an interesting choice. Or turn to a trusted and true classic, the windowsill herb garden. An eclectic selection of containers can make all the difference. Try teacups, bedazzle used cans or repurpose a glass punch bowl. Variety is the spice of life!

3. Paint the Town Green 

Replace wall art with a tableau of hanging pots, or hang some edible plants and flowers from the ceiling. Perfect for small spaces they save an abundance of counter space while acting as a focal piece for the wall.
