FOR THE LOVE OF HOUSEPLANTS
I love houseplants because I enjoy seeing things grow and being surrounded by greenery. I also find they bring life to a room and cheer any areas that lack personality. After all is there anything more charming than a cute little cactus? So today I’m sharing three simple and easy ways to style your houseplants.
Small shelves are great for displaying your favourite things. They’re also perfect for creating displays to reflect the month or season. Placing a few small houseplants on a shelf will give it interest, especially if you include a trailing plant or two. It’s fun to occasionally change things around and styling can be a calming process.
A collection of houseplants look great on a small table or in the centre of a large one. Plants work well if they’re the same type and it’s fun to see the different heights, shapes and sizes. My small but perfectly formed succulent collection never fails to make me smile!
ON A PEDESTAL
I like to use books as pedestals to display things because it gives them a little height and purpose. So why not collect together a few books or magazines and pop a couple of your favourite plants on top for a quick and easy display.
This post was inspired by the Urban Jungle Bloggers’ challenge to style one plant in three ways – you may have spotted the reappearing succulent. There’s a whole lot more plant inspiration on Urban Jungle Bloggers, run by Igor and Judith, and you’ll also find more plant fun here on Candy Pop. I hope you have a fabulously leafy week and may your succulents be plump and your cacti prickly!
