Go Green and decorate with plants
Friday, April 24, 2009Adding greenery to your home, either through living plants or silk arrangements adds a touch of the outdoors into any home, and scan soften almost any decor scape.
Although some Feng Shui experts frown upon dried flowers as a decorative accent (as dried flowers are a clear symbol of something that was once alive and vibrant), these guidelines do not seem to apply to silk flowers and definitely do not apply to living plants.
Potted plants and flowers are a simple yet inexpensive way to fill and soften any space, either as a focal point or a background. Philodendrums are by far one of easiest plants to grow and are - in some cases - almost impossible to kill.
If you have a bit of a green thumb, you can try some other plant options, including a fern or a ficus.
By adding some simple greenery, and caring for them regularly (live plants require proper lighting, water and feeding, silk plants require a regular cleaning or dusting to maintain their appeal), you can add a soft, casual, lively accent to any space.
