Going Green

 Let’s move some of that fun, springtime, greenery indoors. That’s right, I’m talkin house plants!  And not the adorable, yet expected orchid or succulent, I mean big house plants. There’s that one corner, we all have it, where you look over and think, “what’s missing”? Answer: an enormous leafy green!

The possibilities are endless! Put them in your corner that’s lacking, like the photo above. Tight on space? Instead of a side table between two chairs, why not some greenery?

Conversely, if you have too much space, or just a very large room your not sure what to do with or how to separate the space, a house plant makes a wonderful room divider!

And again, I encourage you to think outside the common spaces in your house. The bedroom and bathroom are always fair game.

Not only are they a gorgeous addition to any room, but they are a great way to add an organic feeling element to your home. They also are great for improving indoor air quality, and the more rooms you can do that in, the better.

And now for my favorite idea… For those of you who love the house plant concept, but can’t commit to a landing spot for it, this one’s for you. Put it on a plant tray with wheels! This way you can move it from one room to another with absolute ease. You can play until you find a spot that makes both you (and the plant) happy.

For more information on the right plant for your specific lighting needs or requirements, stay tuned for a future post by Lindsay Rothwell of Linden Green.
