Most houseplants are Green, which is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green also has a strong emotional connection with safety and is said to have healing powers.

The color green is the color of life. It is the color of rebirth, freshness, and energy which is why we feel so excited at the first signs of spring.

Succulents make great indoor plants as most people find them easy to take care of. There are many interesting varieties to choose from, and they look great combined in a planter to create a visually stunning arrangement that brings modern charm to a light-filled space. With succulent terrariums, you have to make sure you don’t over water, which is probably the number one common misstep.

This concrete and copper plant stand created by Claire Zinnecker of Camille Styles is the perfect perch for interesting indoor plants, such as the succulents. If you love the look of this as much as I do, check out her blog on how to create it yourself.

I love the personality of these planters, with the succulent hair! (Joy admits on her blog that she bad trouble keeping one of them alive and finally gave up and added a Faux one.

Another way to use Houseplants to Add to Your Springtime Interior Design is to add a Vertical Garden

Add a touch of nature to any wall with a Vertical Garden

Vertical gardens help to promote healthy environments and are great indoor options for walls with bright spaces. They work well in any design style but I especially like how it is used in the photo above. The contrast of the white walls and carpet, the floating stairs, and shelving, against the bright lush green plants. Simply stunning.

There are plenty of DYI tips on sites such as Pinterest but if you don’t want to create your vertical garden from scratch, check out  https://livewall.com/

 

A fabulous option for low-maintenance indoor greenery with a real WOW factor is Air plants!

Air plants, known as tillandsia (Tillys), have leaves, roots and also produce flowers like other plants but they need no soil to grow. There leaves, which can be smooth or hairy, handle the job of absorbing moisture. Each leaf is covered in specialized scales known as trichomes which absorb water and nutrients.

 

 

Air plants like bright, but filtered sunlight, like near an east, south or west facing window in placing indoors, or a screened porch, lanai or pool for outdoor use. Learn more about caring for air plants

 

 

I am not sure what type of plant this is, but I just had to share! The clear glass container, with no dirt, allowing you can see the roots,  makes an exciting decor statement as well as a converstion piece.
