So, you’ve decided that you want to turn your living space into a little forest paradise. We don’t blame you! Having plants in the house has plenty of benefits, from lowering your blood pressure and helping you get quality sleep.
Plus, after a hectic day at work and going through heavy traffic, it’s always nice to go back to a well-decorated home.
Here are some ways you can start decorating:
#1 Think of how you want to use your space
Plants take up space! This is why you should plan on where to put them. If you have a lot of space, you could consider getting big, leafy plants:

#2 Think about the kind of pots you’ll use
Plant pots/vases are just as important as the plants themselves when you’re decorating your living room. Think about what kind of theme you’re going for!
For example, if you want something DIY and smaller, you could consider this mini terranium:

And if you have dried flowers, you can ‘hang’ them up the wall with this iron frame vase:

#4 You need to take care of your plants well
Remember, plants will make your living space beautiful, but they will wither and die if you don’t take care of them! Do some research about how much water they need and observe how they’re growing. You might need to find out how to repot them when the time comes!
If you’re away for long hours at work, you could also opt for a self-watering pot. Amazing, right?
