Bringing Outside Indoors

Seeing as the groundhog couldn’t find his shadow, we just couldn’t find a reason not to talk about the spring weather that is right around the corner. With the temperatures rising and the sun setting later, we’ve been inspired to throw open our windows and let a little fresh air in. It’s about time to wash away the stuffy cozy contentment of winter and embrace the sunshine. Plants are making a huge edgy comeback this season and are a fantastic way to add a little life to your interior design. With millions of pots and plants to  choose from your options are endless. Here are just a few ways people are ingeniously bringing outside indoors.IMG_3485

Big potted ferns add a decadent touch of emerald green in a corner of any room. With a neutral color pallet, you can make them the center of attention by their natural contrast. The saturated color of the leaves pops against whites to create a fresh and clean space. If you like your walls more dressed up, saffron is making a comeback this season and some greenery really brings the intensity of that yellow hue back down to earth.  Ferns don’t need a lot of sunlight so they’re the perfect addition to that corner you just can’t figure out what to do with. They’ll fill the space up easily and be happy to hang out in the shadows, just be sure it gets some sunlight throughout the week.

Another trend we’re seeing is decorated mantle tops. Succulents fit easily on any space that gets a lot of sunlight. They’re also add a little bit of edge to your home. If showcasing many different plants next to each other, glass votives keep the space from feeling overcrowded by adding some fine barriers. Keep potting colors to a minimum color pallet of white to unify the natural nature and add cohesiveness. When bunching things up together it’s important to remember that a cohesive neutral color pallet will keep an area from looking cluttered or thrown together.IMG_3486

Many places are now, also, featuring tiny hang-able terrariums in glass balls that you can suspend from your ceiling. Suspending these from your ceiling is an innovative way to fill space and will add a liveliness and freshness to any room. They’ll also be a fantastic compliment to a gorgeous light fixture or ornate sculpture from our showroom. Low maintenance planting is a great way to ready your home for the freshness spring time brings.
