1. Living In The Woods

Plants of varying heights adorn the living and dining spaces to optimum effect! Teamed with wooden flooring and furniture and with large glass windows that let in a flood of natural light, the abundance of greenery seems to create a gorgeous forest environment. What fun to enjoy a meal in this wooded sanctuary!

2. Single Beauty

This comfortable living space looks well-furnished and cozy, hence requires only a single tall plant to lend its elegant beauty to the decor.

3. Adorning The Bathroom

This trendy bathroom with its neutral tones gets a splash of color and a dash of pizzazz, thanks to the green plant nestled in the corner!

4. Potted Plants

A broad-leaved potted plant is a dramatic accessory for a side table, shelf or mantelpiece. If possible, place it near a window for maximum effect!

5. Elegant Decor

Elegant plants are ideal in an elegant, minimalist decor scheme. Note how the two stylish plants in this very chic, modern room harmonize with the white, gray and brown color palette and add a distinguished touch to the minimalist environment.

6. Create An Arbour

What a unique idea to build a lovely leafy arbour over your bathtub! Small potted plants on either end of the tub complete the look. We could certainly enjoy a hot soak here!

7. Embellishing The Kitchen

Spreading ferns are the perfect match for a spacious, bright and well-ventilated kitchen!

8. Lending Poise
