Plant Infusion

So long, 2020, and hello to a new year! We don’t know about you, but this time of year always has us excited for things to come. And especially after the year we just had, well, we’re all looking forward to a little infusion of happiness and hope.


Of course, as much as we’d all like to get back to normal as quickly as we can, we’re likely to be in our homes for the foreseeable future. So today, we’re talking all about how adding plants and florals to your home can give you an instant boost of positivity. It sounds simple, but we promise that with a few strategic additions throughout your space, you’re sure to feel rejuvenated and refreshed, even if the temps are subzero.



Simple Greenery with Big Impact

As much as we love a good neutral palette, sometimes a little pop of color is a must to add a touch of excitement to your design. You don’t need to go overboard and put a potted plant on every surface, though. A small succulent or a vase of greenery stems is sure to be the exact addition of vibrancy you need to beat those winter blues.

Floral Fun

Who doesn’t love a fresh bouquet of flowers? And whether they come from a loved one or were a self-care pick-me-up on your grocery run, there’s no denying that beautiful blooms make us smile. If you’re feeling like a room or two in your home could use an upgrade, try setting a vase of florals on a side table or vanity. You’ll be surprised how much those lush colors and petals can lift your mood. (Oh, and PS - sometimes adding a touch of a floral print to your space via a throw pillow or framed print can achieve the same effect!)

Visual Balance

Want to know a designer trick of the trade to make a home feel lived-in and welcoming? Plants! That’s right - a simple arrangement of eucalyptus, a fiddle leaf fig, a potted palm - they all work to fill empty spaces like corners or otherwise blank walls with character, and as a bonus, their height helps to visually balance out the other furniture and decor in a space.

Shelfie Style

Who says shelfies have to include only books and tchotchkes? One of our favorite ways to give a room a happy facelift is to pepper in a few plants on your shelves. And while an oversized trailing pothos would of course look stunning, a simple bud vase arrangement or an air plant can have just as much of a wow factor.

Unexpected Texture

Of course, when it comes to an infusion of plants, you don’t always have to think along the lines of potted ferns or a fresh bouquet. Out-of-the-box arrangements like branches, lavender stems, or cabbage flowers can bring a totally unexpected and unique texture to your space, giving the overall look a sense of intrigue and pleasant surprise.

When it comes to plants and florals, are you a green thumb with overflowing and lush pots on every surface? Or do you prefer a more subtle arrangement of a classic flower - like hydrangeas or roses - sprucing up your coffee table? There’s no wrong or right way to incorporate plants into your daily living space, and whichever path you choose, you’re sure to feel revitalized through and through. And with a new year upon us, we can’t think of a better way to turn our moods around!
