Turning Your Home into a Green Paradise

Plants are a sustainable and affordable way to inject new life into your home. Besides livening up your home, plants also help to improve your well-being by absorbing harmful toxins and regulating humidity.

Read on for easy ways to give your home a green makeover.

1. Line your shelves with plants

Up your #shelfie game by decorating your shelves with plants! Potted succulents or draping vines, such as the Devil’s Ivy, will add a touch of elegance to your shelves.

2. Use macrame plant hangers

Potted plants in macrame hangers brighten up your home without taking up any floor space. Hang them by your living room or kitchen window, so that the plants can get adequate sunlight.

3. Hang air plants in prisms

If you do not have green fingers or prefer not to get your hands dirty, air plants are ideal for you. These compact, soil-less plants can be placed in geometric prisms and displayed as decoration. Check out how adorable they look!

4. Adorn your table with a plant centrepiece

Having a potted plant centrepiece on your dining or coffee table injects warmth to the area. If you have a busy lifestyle, choose low-maintenance options such as terrariums or succulents instead. The best part? Compared to cut flowers, potted plants can last much longer.

5. Bring in big, leafy plants as statement pieces

Want to add some pizzazz to your home? Bring in large, leafy plants, such as the Monstera deliciosa, to make a statement! Do ensure you place the plants in a corner where they can grow and thrive.
