Decorating with indoor plants and trees

Sprucing up a room by bringing in big plants and trees is a raging trend in home decorating.

 Big plants and trees as a cactus, a ficus, fig trees, banana trees, palm trees, olive trees are adding color and interest and act as living sculptures in a home interior.

They instantly change the atmosphere and make your décor feel complete.

They bring a connection to outdoor and indoor life. In Asian home decors we notice this use since a long time.

Let’s see how plants and trees pop up in the interiors of nowadays designers.

    I’m a big advocate for having trees and plants in a home…even if they are air plants for those with a black thumb! Add some fresh flowers from the market and a home comes alive! Lovely post…

    So lovely, Greet. Don’t forget the indoor tree in the salon at Patina Farm! 😉
    Bon Weekend…

    I see so many people buy a tree, take it home and plop it in a basket in their living room. These trees need 2 to 3 times the size of pot they come in from the nursery with more nutritious soil added and natural fertilizer to grow. It is such a shame that people don’t understand how to grow an indoor tree.
