Indoor plants add color and liveliness to the interior; however, experienced green thumbs might be fed up with ordinary potted flowers on the windowsills. If you feel like going the extra mile, we've compiled the top of the extraordinary tips for decorating the room with your favorite plants.
Fancy pots and unusual accessories
If you are tired of the monotony of pots, you can use vintage cups with beautiful patterns or even ordinary white cups in which you can plant colorful flowers to add contrast. Plants will look stunning in a teapot or small containers for milk supply - such containers will be nicely placed on a veranda or balcony on pedestals or wall shelves. You can add color by putting everything on an antique tray and decorate a balcony in a rustic style.
Hanging pots will fit into any decor. Plants that braid the containers, and their branches with leaves hanging from the pot, will look especially good in them. Ferns, tillandsias, chlorophytes, and other green plants will look charming in this way. Hanging pots can be placed on metal clothing trays. It will be interesting in this combination if the pots are placed at different height levels.
Arrange support of the unusual shape (we recommend round one) and let the climbing plant grow to create bizarre compositions not worse than those in Versailles garden. Another great option is a moodboard or a plain metal mesh found in any building store. You can create green walls using those, but be careful: the mesh might be sharp! You can attach pots and hook the shelves there, and let the plants climb up or down. Next to the plants, you can put books, dried flowers in small vases, or framed photographs on such green walls.
Pots of unusual geometric shape: triangles, hexagons, cubes, etc., are likely to fit any interior. They can be placed on open shelves and nightstands. Various shelves with cut-out holes for inserting pots there make a great variant for decorating a room as well.
Consider buying forged metal stands for pots, in which you can plant a variety of plants - don`t be afraid of experiments!
Glass florariums filled with pebbles and drainage for succulents and cacti will add extraordinariness even to the plainest room.
If you don't know what to do with your old dresser, randomly open the drawers (again, not on the same heigh levels) and place potted plants in them. This solution will surprise your guests and bring a new life to the chest of drawers.
We are accustomed to the plants that everyone has at home, so even if they were in the best place in the room, they would not look like exotic ones that few people know about. So another option is to choose unusual plants: of course, you will have to look for such species and take care of some of them very carefully, but you will not regret it if you take them home. All of these exotic plants can be flowered in handmade pots and put on unexpected places in the room, for example, walls (you`d better attach a stand to the wall or hang an open shelf).
