Freshening Up Your Space: Adding Greenery to Your Summer Decor

It’s time to get your place ready for the summer and we’re here to help you make sure it’s fern-tastic! Adding plants to your decor can instantly brighten your space and bring a refreshing touch of nature indoors. The lush green foliage, vibrant flowers, and intricate textures of plants create a dynamic atmosphere. Plants enhance your home’s aesthetic appeal, adding a sense of life, warmth, and tranquillity. We have curated a list of recommendations for each room to make it easier for you, let’s get started!

Living Room

Big plants like a Swiss cheese plant, a fern plant and a fig tree can be used to create soft focal points in empty spaces like ends of couches or corners. If you’re looking to add a little pizzazz to your living room, try adding a bar cart, and be sure to sprinkle in some of your favourite plants while you’re at it. Just place the plants on the cart, adjust them however you see fit, and voila! Another plus point of the plant cart is that you can easily move it to different places if you’re entertaining and need more space.

Home Office 

Working at home might just be the one good thing that came out of the pandemic, but it can feel mundane pretty quickly. Adding plants like the African Violet or an Oxalis to make your workspace pop can help you fight the blues. You can also assemble a small terrarium with mini succulents that are easy to find and move around! Not only does something as simple as a terrarium can help jazz up your workspace, but being around plants is known to have positive effects on mental health and mood.

Entrance, Hallways, & Windows

These spaces are often overlooked and sprucing them up can make your entire come together. For under $10, you can pick up a dried eucalyptus bouquet and hang it in your entryway to make it more dynamic and add freshness. As for hallways, you can hang colourful floral or abstract art with a few mounted/hung in the mix to have your wall-art gallery!

Balconies & Patios

Balconies, patios, or even backyards are the perfect places for you to make your very own vertical herb garden. Not only does it add greenery, but you also have access to fresh herbs every day! Some common herbs include basil, parsley, rosemary, oregano, chives, and many more. If you would like to go all in, you can also try out a living wall or a vertical garden. Pick a theme that resonates best with you and experiment with different colours, and textures, and make it a fun project!
