Living with Plants

I have been on a plant kick lately. It started with a peace lily in my living room, to adding several additional plants all over my apartment. Soon I will have an indoor garden, I am sure of it. Why so many you may ask? Plants bring the element and beauty of nature into my home. Indoor houseplants are like green sculptures bringing a sense of serenity to the home. Plants can soften architectural elements and add texture to an interior.

Adding indoor plants allows for you to purify the air in your home naturally. Cleaning out toxins you would typically find throughout your home. Here are some great examples of how you too can infuse life into your space using plants.

All Natural

Hello everyone! Let me just tell you I am all about eclectic, very glamorous interiors but fell in love with the naturally serene interiors below. I would say these spaces are still eclectic in a natural kind-of-way. I could only imagine living in each and every one of these spaces. They are all so amazing! Warm, inviting and oh, so beautiful.

African Flare

Lately, as I have been browsing the internet I have been fascinated with interiors with a touch of African influence. In my search I have come across a few great ways to incorporate African details to a space without looking overdone and keeping a space modern. I have even picked up a few new pieces to add to my own home, which I absolutely love. Check out some inspiration I have found that helped me along the way.

Comfortable Elegance

When it comes to designing your home, you of course want to make it as comfortable as possible while keeping it stylish. Sometimes I come across homes that either have beautiful things in them that are never used or touched (kind of like a museum). I remember my grandma had one room in her house that was very fancy and off limits.

Your space should not lack all the beautiful things your heart desires because you are worried about how things may hold up. Now that was easier said then done because I am definitely working on that. I sometimes have a moment when a coaster is not used under a glass…lol.

If you are in the process of designing a comfortable and stylish space in your
home keep in mind a few things; color palette, furniture choices, fabric and textures, and lastly functionality.

1. Choose a color palette that is warm and inviting. There is nothing more unsettling then sitting in a room with a jarring color on the walls. No one will be in there very long.

2. Use furniture that is functional to the room you are placing it in. For example, if you are designing a sitting room you would place a sofa, along with side chairs for additional sitting. Creating a space plan that will accommodate a conversation between you and your quests.

3. When collecting fabrics for the room you also want to keep in mind what the room will be utilized for. High traffic rooms you may want to use fabrics deeper in tone, along with being durable.

4. All – in – all functionality is key. Keep in mind what your room will be used for and how to make it most effective for your family’s needs.
