While selecting plants, do not get overwhelmed by their shapes, size, colours and containers. Remember plants are like a vintage painting that brightens up your rooms, livens up the walls and corners. Thus, it is imperative that you consider the entire room before getting in plants.
Plants with distinctly shaped flowers and foliage would create interest within a room.
Highly contrasting plants would bring in drama and excitement to the otherwise dull surroundings. For instance, try pairing vertical Sansevieria with a mounding peperomia and see for yourself.
The Color Basics:
Plants come in an array of colours. Use their distinct hues to create a more welcoming and comforting room. Take the liberty to play with vibrant reds or soothing blues. We all are aware of the colour theory.
- Purple is visually enticing and attractive.
- Yellow and pink bring in optimism.
- Green is soul-soothing green.
- There is a wide range of greens with a pattern of white, gray, red, pink, silver, yellow, or purple in variegated plants.
For indoors it is best to match foliage plants with flowering ones. The combination of both makes an indoor garden spectacular. While companion planting, choose one or two colour plants. If you wish to bring plants in one container, select varieties that need the same care.
Start with a large plant to anchor the group; let the small and trailing varieties grab the perimeter. While arranging each plant in an individual container, visualize how they will look from different corners.
You could grow succulents, coleus or orchids in small concrete planters. Small pots fit easily in corners or can be paired comfortably. Succulents in handmade concrete containers create artful accents rich in texture. They look cute if surrounded by gravel, placed on a tabletop or a windowsill where they could get ample of light. If you wish to create a window garden, go for geometric concrete planters to grow herbs and tulips in complete style.
