This post is collaboration post with Green Contours. Both blogs will be covering the same topic but from different angles. Here, you will find information covering aesthetics and Kayla will be covering the more technical side of things. In other words, she covers plant care and I cover where to put the plants.

The desk is typically "the boring space". You go there to focus on getting shit done. I don't know about you but I find that boring spaces can be unmotivating and unappetising. I can never find the gusto to pick myself up from what I'm doing to go work in a dull and dry space. Bright colours and exciting stationary make me want find reasons to stay in my study space. Colourful, easy to care for plants, like the one in the photos below, add
intrigue and excitement to any study space without much effort.
Where one sleeps, meditates/prays, and enjoys one on one time. This is a sacred space for most people. Making it cleaner and less cluttered gives one peace of mind. An orchid, in a colour that suits the theme of your room, adds an air of intimacy without being overwhemling and distracting from elements in your room that you find personal.
Mixing small vine-like plants and heavy trunked plants adds texture to a room usually filled with glass and stainless steel. I chose to decorate this space by placing the smaller plants between shelves to act as dividers and the stockier plants around the windowsills and counters.
GO WILD. Bushy, leafy, deep green plants are welcoming and lively. Fill your living space with these babies to add bounce and fun to the most exciting and open spaces in any home. And if the space starts to fill crowded, add some mirrors to open it right back up.
You know those random empty spaces you have no idea how to fill? Transform them into art pieces. Make the walls a gallery of treasured photos of your family and friends to foster sweet nostalgia or simply place a table and a potted plant there to heighten delicacy in the room. Or you could do both! Get in touch with your creative side and exploit theses spaces but be sure to visit Green Contours to get insight into what types of plants will suit the sunlight levels in your space and information on how to maintain your new green buddies.
