Have a look at some of our favourite plants to use when styling a home.
Did you know that the common name "fiddle leaf"fig was derived from the violin or fiddle shape of the leaf? The large glossy green leavs of this plant catch the light and give it a huge presence in a room. It brings a sense of harmony with the outdoor garden.
All of these plants offer interesting colour, texture and shape, and are a great way to make use of vertical space in a room. Snake plants (also known as mother-in-law's tongue) and Zanzibar Gem are particularly tolerant of low light conditions and add life to dark corners of a room.
A bowl of Phalenopsis Orchids on a dining table, console, or coffee table, draws the eye and creates instant interest and warmth. An orchid arrangement has a sculptured form and brings flowers and foilage into your home. Orchids are low maintenance and generally last 2-3 months. They are fabulous to use when selling your home of for busy people who want long tasting flowers. They are also great for families who suffer from allergies to the perfume and pollen from many cut flowers.
Using smaller trailing plants on bookshelves and mantels is another way to introduce plants into your home and to soften harsh horizontal lines. Rhipsalis, Devils Ivy and Chain of Hearts are great examples of plants that can be used as feature plants on shelves.
