They may be often overlooked but I love the organic shapes and pops of green that plants can bring to a room. I grew up in a home with a lot of plants and even though I'm not the best at remembering to water them, I insist on having at least a few in my own home.
Sometimes a plant is just what's needed to finish a space. We took our time adding plants to our office (I still want to add a hanging fern) but I'm so glad we did. I love the look of bigger floor level plants, a few smaller, mid-level plants (like the tray of varied shapes and sizes, including a cactus!, in the Old Brand New living room), and one or two cascading hanging plants.
Do you use plants when you decorate?
