LL LOVES: Indoor Plants
If you’ve been a client of mine then you know that I will always try and incorporate indoor plants into design schemes, and if you’re not a client of mine yet, then I’m sure this post will prove my love for the greenery that adds life to an interior.
What is it about plants that I love so much? Well as I mentioned above they add life into interior spaces, transforming dull rooms into awakened, vibrant ones. Plus there’s this whole thing about bringing the outdoors in, which I think is good for the soul!
I’m not going to lie, keeping plants alive is bloody hard work - one which I am slowly getting better at - but as a designer I often experiment with real and faux plants, especially as the market for artificial plants has improved majorly - thanks Abigail Ahern!
See below a few snippets of my fav indoor plants (real and fake) along with how they can be used in interior spaces to optimise your room design.
My fav indoor plant supplier at the moment is Patch because not only do they have a great selection of plants to choose from, but they also offer great guides on how to care for your plants! Bonus! Shown above I have picked my three favourite large plants from them, great for making a strong impact. I often position large plants in empty corners or by sofas and sideboards is a personal favourite as neither one is overshadowed by the other.
Above I have picked a selection (it was hard to narrow down) of my most used smaller pot plants. Silvy - a trailing goddess is perfect for a shelf display, allowing her leaves to trail freely.
Another great plant supplier is Ikea (what aren’t they good for?!) for their cost conscious selection of real and artificial plants.
Some other artificial plants that are great for interiors, especially if keeping plants alive is not for you:
I hope I’ve convinced you to incorporate and buy indoor plants for your space, because I have definitely convinced myself on purchasing more plants. xx
