Easy Ways to Decorate Your Home with Plants One of the easiest ways to decorate your home with plants is by filling in any empty spaces of bookshelves with small indoor plants. Not only with this add a little color to the shelving, but it can also add great contrast and height differences allowing your bookshelves to feel as if they have more depth. 

Indoor Tree

While an indoor tree might not be for everyone, if space allows it can create a stunning statement piece. The best places are to find a great corner that is otherwise empty, and then go bold with a great pot, either textured and colored to bring color and life to the space or muted and simple to let the tree to the talking. A few common indoor trees include Monstera, fiddle leaf fig, olive tree, etc.  

Herb Garden

If you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor (literally), then try your hand at a small indoor herb garden. Whether you are planning on a small windowsill garden or your kitchen window, a hanging herb garden out of recycled bottles or cartons, etc. herb gardens are generally easy to tend to, add a touch of color to your kitchen while still allowing for a crisp and clean aesthetic, and create great flavors to add to your daily cooking.  

Living Layers

Oftentimes you may feel as if you don’t have enough floor space to accommodate plants. Luckily, the floor isn’t the only place you can enjoy a little greenery and you can decorate your home from floor to ceiling. Try hanging plants, vines, etc. that can stretch from the ceiling planters and add extra layers to your home. You can even train hanging planters to grow into a “curtain” of sorts and create a one-of-a-kind doorway or room divider.
