Plant life


One of the best things you can do to lift a room, give it character and make it feel established as a space is to add plants. I love indoor plants and have found it interesting to rehouse my plants when we moved. Our old place was fairly small so most of the plants were in the downstairs living area because that was the best room for natural day light.

In our home now we have almost three times the space and every room has a huge window with lots of natural light pouring into each and every space. So I’ve had to play around with the plants a bit and see where it’s best to situate them.

There are two important things to consider here. One, what type of plant is it? Does it need lots of sunlight and need to be beside the window or does it prefer a little shade? And two, how does the plant sit in the room with all your other accessories and furniture? Does it look and feel right to you?

Sometimes all you need to do is change the plant pot. So choose a colour that you love that would work well in your space and watch how it transforms the look!

My personal favourites are cacti and succulents. They have so much character and are easy to look after, so if you aren’t into plants but want the look, these are the best plants to go for. Just watch yourself with the prickly bits!
