How to decorate your living room with plants

The living room is the social hub of your home, so it is essential to prepare the space so that it is as comfortable as it is aesthetically pleasing. As part of this process, it is important to consider the role that nature should play in the decoration.

Incorporating natural materials, textures and colours found in the outside world into the home is what brings life and style to the place. A nod to nature humanises rooms and fills them with colour. One simple way to bring the natural into the home is to use plants. Learn how to decorate your living room with plants by following these simple tips.

Tips for decorating your living room with plants

Know your space

The first step before going crazy with the online plant catalogue is to determine what the temperature, lighting and space conditions are in your living room. It also helps to know roughly what effect you want to achieve or the style you are going for. do you have a colour palette? So much the better, as it will help you choose just what you need.

  • To the floor

One of the great advantages of decorating with plants is that you have a lot to choose from and therefore you can play with scale. It's possible to find tiny plants, like this cute terrarium, that you can place on a desk; but you can also buy a plant online that is so tall that it almost touches the ceiling. Just be mindful of the rest of the furniture. If they are too short, having a plant that is too long and too tall can make them look much smaller and shorter. Look for a size that complements your furniture.

  • Symmetry

If you're adding a plant in one corner, consider placing the same or a similar plant at the other end. Symmetry offers a sense of balance and harmony that can be very visually relaxing. You can place plants on the floor, at either end of the sofa, or on the dining table. Try pairs or trios, always looking for balance.

  • Divide and conquer

If you live in a flat with an open concept, you will have faced the challenge of differentiating rooms without detracting from the light and space. Plants, whether placed on the floor or on a piece of furniture, can be used to delineate the different spaces. They won't steal the light and can even purify the atmosphere.

  • The centre of attention

You can make a plant the centre of attention in your decoration. You can have a nice bonsai or an olive tree if space is at a premium, but a large fiddle leaf fig tree can become a focal point that adds drama and texture to your living room.
