Eleven Ways to Add Plants to your Decor

As a child, I always loved going to my Aunt and Uncle’s home up in Wisconsin. It was a secluded location up near Dodgeville, out in the woods with 40 acres to their name. The land was beautiful, and so was the house. My Aunt and Uncle had a minimalist European style to their home, a little bohemian if you will. Scandinavian furniture, tribal tapestries, a simplistic array of wall art, and loads of plants.

Plants are a wonderful piece of decor to have in your space. They often get overlooked because of the gardening aspect, but they offer such great benefits. The help purify the air, block EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies), help us feel more calm and relaxed, and oh, give us oxygen. Ya know, that stuff we breath. Plants provide us with so many reasons to add them to our spaces. Owning a plant is a rewarding experience. Yes I said owning. When you have a plant, it is sort of like having a pet. You feed it, water it, and make sure it’s being properly looked after. I even talk to my plants. Scientific studies actually show talking to your plants helps them grow due to the CO2 we are emitting when we breath. So all in all, plants are a great addition to our spaces, but like I said, many people over look them. Here are 11 ways to add plants to your space.

As an End Table
