Just because Jack Frost is on his way, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy being surrounded by fresh plants and flowers. There’s a real trend for indoor plants right now, from tiny terrariums to hanging planters, as more of us are looking for creative ways to bring nature into the home. Combine our ideas below to create a lush indoor retreat away from the cold.
Designer Abigail Ahern has some key tips for introducing greenery into the home during the winter months:
– “A single large statement piece such as fern plants, a banana tree or tall cacti will instantly elevate any space to new heights.”
– “More is more when it comes to indoor greenery. Not only do faux plants immediately spruce up a room, they are a fab way of creating your own indoor oasis – perfect for gardenless urbanites.”
– “Nothing ups texture like plants. Mix feathery fronds with glossy shining leaves, big fat succulent heads with trailing strings of pearls.”
– “Don’t overlook foliage. I use ferm fronds, succulent or branches a lot – they brighten even the smallest nook or shelf.”
