Since the pandemic, we have got some new habits. Especially when we have to stay at home because of the lockdown. One of the new habits that you might also do is take care of plant decorating.

Not only because caring for plants is easy but ornamental plants can also be used for room decoration. Here are some unique plants for your home decor.

What is plant decorating?

Simply put, it is decorating our homes with plants!

As an Interior Designer, I always get asked for ideas and recommendations on how to best and properly decorate homes. 

Questions generally vary from paint colors to flooring types, from cabinet materials to what to hang on the walls. 

Some of the questions, like material and finishes, are more Interior Design related than Decor related. However, based on what I am hearing, people are generally looking for ease of maintenance and durability on all fronts, and I can’t blame anybody for that! I am all over it, especially having a young family and a dog! 

The one thing people don’t often take into consideration, is the alternative green and healthy way to decorate a home, or better, plant decorating!

In addition to the aesthetic values that plants can add to a home, indoor plants have many health benefits, and surrounding ourselves with green, living and breathing decor is incredibly beneficial for our bodies and minds!
