Decorating with plants is a good way to connect with nature and to introduce some of its beauty into our homes. We use the plants to give the spaces a fresh and vibrant look and to add color to a simple decoration that needs a green touch to look complete. Large indoor plants and even small trees can provide us with an unexpected and unique focal point. There are many different ways to decorate with large indoor plants. Let's see some.
For example, a large plant can be placed in the corner of a room to fill an empty space. The corners are generally dead spaces and having a plant there is a good way to give it a use. In addition they are usually too small to place a piece of furniture and so we fill them instead without stealing space in the rest of the room.
Even though there is furniture from wall to wall. A plant can also look beautiful in front of a bookcase or closet, as long as it does not completely obstruct access to that area. For greater symmetry place plants on both sides.
Another good idea is to have a large plant placed in front of or near a window. It will filter the light that enters the room and you will certainly love the location if it is a species that likes direct sunlight. Keep in mind that not all plants like direct sun. This species is specifically called Strelitzia nicolai and it is similar to the banana tree.
A solarium, covered patio or any room with large windows and a strong connection to the outside can be converted into a fresh and tropical enclosure by means of plants. Choose high indoor plants that are striking and do not take up much space. In this way you can still have plenty of space to install comfortable furniture and the plants will also provide shade.
In some cases a small tree placed in a pot can be the perfect accent piece. Make sure to place it next to a window or glass door. A balcony would be a wonderful location for this decoration. You can surround it with small flower pots to create a small interior garden.
Spaces with high ceilings or double-height rooms offer more flexibility when it comes to large indoor plants. There is even the option to grow a climbing plant and let it cover the walls, being guided by the sun that crosses the skylight. The ficus are a good option in this case as they will grow above all in these circumstances.
If you have decided to decorate your house with a large indoor plant you should also think about choosing the right pot. It can be old or with a lot of rustic or vintage charm or it can be something modern and sculptural. Choose the color, shape and style that best suits the decoration of your home.
Maybe you think that the interior of a house is not the best place for a tree but when there is enough light there is no problem. A large pot that offers enough space and the care you need will be enough to thrive indoors.
Libraries and plants make a great couple. That's because the plants are very relaxing and some even say that they help us to concentrate better. There are also a lot of plants that help purify the air. A large indoor plant like this can lean against the shelves and give the room a unique and very comfortable look.
The dining room is another great place for a large indoor floor. You can have one next to the window or in a corner of the room. It will give you the sensation of eating in a fresh and natural environment. The decoration of the room can be based on earthy and natural colors such as brown or neutral as gray, white and black.
Putting a large indoor plant next to a mirror creates a nice multiplication effect when reflected in it. It will look great in a rustic or minimalist decoration.
If you prefer a more simple, clean and sculptural look for your home, perhaps a design option would be to put more emphasis on the pots and choose smaller and simple plants. This may be a very suitable idea for a receiver.
