House plants and greenery have a way of softening a space and creating a peaceful, calming environment. Aside from the aesthetic benefits, incorporating nature into your living spaces can help purify the air, sharpen focus, and reduce stress! Whatever the style, design, and scheme of your home is, there is a house plant or leafy motif that will work perfectly for your space. And if you feel like you have less than a green thumb, you can always opt for low maintenance plans or artificial greenery.
To add a touch of greenery to your boho space, you might consider a hanging macramé plant holder. Macramé plant holders have been a growing trend in interior design, and you can find them in many shapes, sizes, and styles. This is a simple way to create a fun, fresh look in your living space! You can hang succulents or other small house plants but be sure to hang them near a window or Bi-Fold Patio Door where they will be able to absorb sunlight (not too much sunlight though, as some succulents and house plants could dry out with too much direct light). Amazon has some beautiful and unique macramé plant hangers available on Prime.
You can use an oversized, large-leaf plant to fill an empty corner. Find a decorative pot or basket that will match your interior design and pick an empty corner of your home to incorporate some greenery. A large plant like this will create a focal point and make the space feel open and refreshing—place the plant near your Bi-Fold Patio Doors so it will get plenty of natural light. When deciding on a plant, be sure to consider the maintenance required so you are prepared. You can even find large, artificial plants similar to this at your local home goods stores—or get this adorable faux banana tree online at Urban Outfitters!
If you have free wall space, consider hanging some wall-mounted planters to add some greenery and fill in the emptiness! Wall-mounted planters come in many designs and colors, so finding one to match your space should be easy. When deciding whether to go with real or artificial plants, remember to consider the wall height of the plants and how far you will have to reach when watering/pruning. The ceramic wall planters pictured above are from West Elm and come in two different sizes, in white or black.
Another way to bring greenery into your home is by hanging a wreath above the fire place or on an empty wall! A wreath is a classic way to soften a space and bring nature into your home. This beautiful handmade wreath from Magnolia by Joanna Gaines can fit in perfectly with many interior design schemes and be that extra element of greenery that you’re looking for!
Draping artificial garland or vines above or around headboards, mantles, or on walls is a unique way to add a touch of greenery to your living space. It is a soft, delicate touch that will make any room feel peaceful and relaxing. There are many different styles to choose from, however pictured above is a simple yet beautiful eucalyptus leaf garland that brings just enough greenery without overwhelming the room or taking away from other unique décor. You can find a similar eucalyptus leaf garland at Hobby Lobby.
