Finding WFH a little easier since you acquired that fern? We’re not surprised – plants can reduce stress and increase concentration, productivity and overall wellbeing. Oh, and they’ve got serious Insta grid potential. So take a leaf out of our book and get inspired by these fan favourites.
We love a botanical backdrop. And @bemorepunky’s palm-print wallpaper nails the colour palette of the moment – pink and green should always be seen. Add velvet, terrazzo and plenty of plants, and you’ve got the triple threat of trends.
Plants are social creatures too, you know. They’ll grow better if they’re sat together. @aime.cotton’s got it right with this garden gang – the different varieties means she can switch up her #shelfie at a moment’s notice.
Another forever trend? Boho-retro interiors. @bricksandbotanics pairs her statement sofa with a leafy money plant and keeps the good vibes going with a large macramé wall hanging. We’re loving those weaves.
Bye, boring kitchens. @homeofsunday proves that when it comes to renting, it’s all in the details. A splash of colour (in this case, green) is an easy way to upgrade your space – no matter your room size or budget.
@greenhappiness_place proves that sometimes more is more with her eclectic collection that spans an entire wall. By placing different heights, sizes and shapes together, she’s created a playful pick-me-up – just add sunshine.
Did you think we could only mention pink once? We couldn’t miss @heartzeena’s leafy corner. And here’s another rental tip for you – hang plants from the ceiling where you can, and tuck any larger ones behind a contrasting piece of furniture. It makes the most of a smaller home.
For those less horticulturally inclined, botanical wall art is the easy way out of having to keep anything alive. @thegoldenapplesofthesun uses hers to create a multi-dimensional effect, with a plant popped here and there. Minimal maintenance, maximum style.
@homemadehannah’s black backdrop is an unexpected choice. But paired with a few leafy greens and a pop of pink she’s created a fresh, modern look – and made that cheese plant the star of the show.
Unsure about pulling out all the stops with a floor-filling plant? Start with smaller succulents and cacti. We can’t promise they’ll stay out of your furry friend’s reach, but they’re usually easier to look after, and are great for getting your greens when you’re lacking space.
