Gone are those days when plants were limited to the outside of a building. Now plants have found their way to our interiors to not only make the space healthy by improving the air quality and removing toxins, but they’ve also become one of the Interior designer’s favourite items. They are excellent for décor and they add a welcomed contrast and highlight to a space. Here are four simple ways you can introduce them to your space;
~ Hanging planters ~
Hanging planters present you with the opportunity to have your plants anywhere you want, and away from your little kids. Once you are able to create a hook from your ceiling, or a good distance from the wall, you can hang your planters. They are very stylish, exotic and look like natural green chandeliers.

~ Planters on Stands ~
You can place your planter on a beautiful stand that is sure to add to the character of your space. The options are endless, from traditional wooden stools, quirky stands and modern looking sculpted metal.

~ Wall Mount ~
The amazing part of wall mounted planters for me is that feeling I get when I see plants on the wall looking like a work of art – they are just awesome!
Not only are the planters functioning to make the space healthier, they also function as awesome décor items and fill up or compliment a wall nicely.

~ Vases and Flower Pots ~
The options with vases are endless. You can play around with transparent glass vases, Wall paper finished vases, rustic looking vases to contemporary brass metallic finished vases like the ones below, or your own DIY vases, amongst others. I also love that they can be placed on any surface; on a table, a kitchen surface, in an open cupboard/ shelving, and so on. They offer you flexibility and stability too, and if you get the ones that are adaptable to hanging, especially those that you can removable twines that allow you re-attach them when you decide to have them hung.
