My family and I moved to a new city and a new home about eight months ago, so naturally I’m just now getting around to hanging things on the wall and adding some personal touches here and there. I love plants and I have a huge love for succulents and all things spiky, cute and easy to grow, but this time I was on the hunt for some house plants. I found that when I was browsing Pinterest, I was often drawn to rooms featuring plants, and I noticed that there were certain types of plants that were often seen in modern, minimalist settings.
I love all things Modernica, and their white case study planter shown above left paired with a tall, long leafed plant looks just perfect in that corner. Like a large scale print, plants with large leaves and memorable shapes can have a big impact on a room, and a little can go a long way. I love the plant sitting on the floating shelf in the above right picture featured on Design*Sponge, and it is a perfect example of a great shape to seek out.
Besides the plants themselves, you also want to give consideration to your pots and planters. I myself am drawn to simple, white containers, but a pop of color against a white or neutral wall can be a beautiful addition to a room. You want to be mindful of your choices though because going overboard with colors and patterns can take away from the lovely simplicity of the plants. If you are looking for a few plants that are easy to care for and to get you started, I recommend the snake plant, areca palm, or rubber tree. They are all great choices for those of you with a black thumb, and they will bring beauty to your space, and even aid in purifying the air inside your home.
I love modern plants for the extra touch they add to my home. What’s your favorite way to brighten up your space?
