Make it green!

Green is totally back. As a colour for on the wall, for accessories and even as window dressing or upholstery for window, chair or sofa. But also, houseplants cannot fail in your interior. The more, the better, but don’t exaggerate. Besides their positive influence on your climate inside, they immediately give your interior another twist. For those amongst us that don’t have ten green fingers: don’t worry. The selection of plants in 2017 is huge, and a large part of these don’t need a lot of care or attention.
A famous example of this is the cactus. At the moment, they are available in all shapes and sizes, even in the DIY shop. Fun to put a few in different sizes together. For example in terracotta pots: a nice combination and also we see a lot of these at the moment. Also available in all sizes; handy!
Another idea is to put them in so-called paper pots. You can also find these in different shapes and sizes.
Succulents are also always good. They’re really fun under a glass sphere, or in a playful grouping with different kinds. The advantage of these plants is that they don’t need a lot of care. They only use a small amount of water, so they are ideal if you sometimes forget to water your plants. Succulents are to be found as minis, as big boys, as hanging plants, with broad leaves, with small leaves and a lot of other shapes. So there’s always a succulent that fits you and your interior. The cactus and the succulent happen to be related! My favourite is the peperomia deppeana, as you can see on the picture.
A new old trend is the so-called air plant, otherwise called the Tillandsia. There are over 500 kinds of air plants, so plenty to choose from! You don’t need to have green fingers for this plant either. The plant gets its food from the air. Enjoy all the benefits, not the burdens!
Another favourite nowadays is the hanging plant. Just like before, we put them on the corner of a shelf and hang them in so-called macramé-hangers and hanging pots. Just like every other trend, we’ve seen it before, and it will be back. Maybe you have to get used to it a bit, but you’ll get very nice creations in your interior by hanging plants. An empty corner suddenly looks really nice and fresh and put together.
Large plant, large effect. An empty or boring corner wants a really big plant. Because the leaves of the plant on the picture grow upwards, it’s also suitable for smaller rooms. This is the Strelitzia, otherwise known as the Bird of Paradise plant. This beautiful plant does need a lot of light and water, so you do need to spend more time on this.
