Are you foraging for indoor garden ideas? We’re not surprised! After all, we’ve been spending much more time between our four walls this year. Wouldn’t it be nice to give it all a freshen up with a load of leafy green frondescence, and maybe a bloom or two?
We have gathered 12 ways to turn your home into a live Paradise continue scrolling to find out them.
Although many of us are lucky enough to have an outdoor space to call our own, some of us city folk are lacking in the garden department. If that’s the case, maybe our garden design ideas have got you pining for some green-fingered action of your own. But that’s okay – whatever your outside-space situation is, nothing can stop you from creating a plant-filled sanctuary indoors! Even if you’ve got an outside plot sorted, there’s always a reason to welcome more plants into your world.
Plants don’t just have to be laid out in garden areas or as patio plants – any environment can benefit from the liveliness and health benefits of plants. ‘No matter what the environment, plants and plant holders can be designed to suit the aesthetic of your space.’
So, why not fill your shelves with succulents, and string foliage from your ceilings, line your windows with herbs, or grow an actual tree indoors? You’ll be hooked before you know it. Trust us – plants can make everything better! Just keep scrolling for a high dose of indoor garden inspiration.
SURROUND YOUR BATHTUB WITH GREENERY
We have serious bathroom envy over here – take a look at that tub! The galvanized containers complement the color scheme beautifully, while the chandelier and fringed curtains add a touch of modern elegance.
The masses of the best indoor plants that make it for us, though – see how these parlor palms pop against the more neutral-hued decor and bring this set-up to life.
Try it yourself – fill your bathroom with plants! Tons will thrive in the humidity. And what could be more relaxing than lying back in a mountain of bubbles, with a fresh & green view to admire?
FILL YOUR KITCHEN WITH HERBS
Herbs are great – they make every meal feel that little bit fancier. A smattering of chopped chives across new potatoes, a crushed mint leaf in a mojito, and the heady scent of basil as you blitz it to pesto, our mouths are watering already!
Don’t just save them for the garden! Use them as indoor plant ideas too. They’ll look beautiful in a mix of multi-colored pots in your kitchen and will be easy to access when you’re in the cooking zone.
CREATE A LUSH PLANTER AT THE END OF YOUR BED
Balancing your work or home space, indoor plants are a natural and adaptable way of creating healthier and more enjoyable environments.
Plants work as great room dividers. These plants have been grouped in a trough at the end of a bed in a small room, to keep an air of privacy.
Plants are great for oxygen levels, as sound absorbers, and can visually divide a room without the need for big furniture – hence why they are great in offices! They also benefit from being grouped as they can create a mini atmosphere between them which is called ‘transpiration, which helps the plants stay happy and healthy.’
So why not bring them into the bedroom and sleep in your private jungle?
TURN YOUR DINING AREA INTO A JUNGLE
Ah, Monstera, known as the Swiss cheese plant(because of the holes), everyone loves it!
They’re as much of a hit in our houses as they seem on Instagram, and it’s easy to see why. They’re huge and beautiful and they bring an awesome jungle vibe to any indoor space (if you’re wondering, it’s the big one on the right).
Pair shelves heaving with potted plants – we spy spider plant here, amongst others – a very low-maintenance choice.
A fabulous setting for your dining area can boost your morning breakfast view or your dinner party’s atmosphere.
REPURPOSE A BAR CART FOR A STUNNING DISPLAY
Okay, so perhaps you’ll need to store your drinks elsewhere. But we think it’s worth it for a scene like this. As you might agree, there’s something rather magical about filling an old globe bar with masses of succulents.
The small plants in old glasses make a lovely touch to the theme. And check out the moss and lichen around the bottom; it gives it an almost overgrown yet enchanting vibe.
PAINT YOUR ROOM TO MATCH A LIVING WALL
If space is tight, or your walls are bare (or both), why not plant vertically?
Even on a smaller scale; a living wall will always have the wow factor. You can buy ready-made systems such as this online. Just swap the plants for indoor ones like ferns, peace lilies, and philodendrons.
Paint the supporting wall a bold blue-green and match it with sumptuous textiles for a statement look you’ll love.
OR USE VERTICAL PLANTING TO ADD COLOUR
If a pared-back style is more to your taste, why not use greenery as a focal point?
This chic indoor courtyard is given a firm lift with two huge vertical panels bursting with foliage. They inject a boost of vibrancy into an otherwise minimalistic room.
CRAM IN THE PLANTS FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT
If you’ve got the space – maybe a spare dresser, table, or desk, then why not go all out and load on your pick of our best indoor plants? Potted plants en masse are always an uplifting sight. Plus, you can enjoy the relaxing process of tending to them lovely, when you have the time.
We love the inclusion of hanging pots and the adorable air plants poking through the wire frame behind. The result is a breathtaking indoor garden for everyone to admire.
TRY PARED-BACK PASTEL POTS
If that last idea was a little OTT for you, how about this look instead? A complementary palette of soft greens, a hint of dusky pink, a mismatch of subtle yet oh-so-gorgeous textures, and a plethora of sizes – yet all pulled together in a grown-up, sophisticated way.
We love how it provides so much interest to an atmosphere without the slightest sign of being overbearing. A wonderful addition to a neutral-toned, contemporary room.
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR CEILING
Make use of any space. I love having plants up high, on shelves, on plant stands from the ceiling… They create drama and interest.
‘They can add color to a sad corner and grow wild. Lean into how a plant grows – create your home around it. I love trailing plants, but if they get too long, I bring them along shelves. Not all plants have to be in eye line combine them!
These ferns and other trailing plants look spectacularly suspended from the stark metal beams, adding to the eclectic styling of the rest of the room.
BRING A BURST OF SPRING COLOUR WITH INDOOR BULBS
Plant in a large pot, as seen here, to make a striking centerpiece for your kitchen table. As well as the lovely paperwhite narcissus with its incredible fragrance, you can also try delights such as grape hyacinth, amaryllis, snake’s head fritillary, and even tulips!
Don’t stop at one pot instead plant up a few, and then dot around the house for bundles of spring cheer.
CREATE A LAID-BACK BOHO VIBE
This set-up brings all the fun and chilled-out vibes of a festival straight to the living room. Full of plants of all heights and lots of comfy seating, it’s got a bohemian feel that we love.
Add festoon lights, bunting, and a bongo or two; You’ll transport to Glasto in no time.
