Decor Inspiration: A Natural Touch...

My mum and I were chatting about room decor the other evening, and out of the blue she commented that I have no tall plants in the house at the moment! I did have I replied, but they've all since died on me. I am not great with the large variety of plants, but I do like succulents and some smaller leafy ferns! It did make me look at some inspiration photos in a new light, and I was surprised how attractive large greenery can be if used in the right way:)

The first photo would be the one I could relate to more... I imagine the lads in the house would think I'm losing the plot if I appeared with one as large as the plant seen above! It might obstruct their important viewing of the TV!!  However I do think  the contrast of greenery against a plain backdrop looks great!

Anyone else like big leafy showy types, or are you more of a small potted plant person like me?

Have a lovely day:)

  1. That big one in the last picture is mad! Don't like it at all. I prefer smaller plants - love having herbs on the windowsill for example.
    I do have 1 quite big umbrella plant in the hall though which copes very well with my attempts to kill it off...in truth, it's probably only alive because mother in law waters it every time she comes over! x

  5. I love the look and feel of greenery in a room. Now if only I had a green thumb! I am trying. Love the fig trees.

  7. These are gorgeous! Love that bath. If I am not mistaken, is that the shower area with the rocks? Enjoy the fabulous day, Kellie xx

  8. I was just telling my husband I want to add more greenery to our house - I am not very good with plants however and have to make sure I find something that won't be poisonous for my kitties!

  9. What great pictures, now I want to repaint my apartment white. I just had a bamboo plant die on me (baffling since I thought I was doing great with that thing), so I would be worried for a tall plant in my care. Although, I do have a lovely palm that has grown quite well for over five years so maybe there's hope for me. Thank you for following my blog. I am your newest follower and looking forward to making your blog a regular read! XO, Jill

  11. Only few of my plants have survived the moving and the exploring of our youngest... He keeps re-planting them again and again. I should have a look around at home, too. Fortunately it is soon time to plant the first seed on the window shelves, my daughter wants us to try corn this year... It is a bit north for it but we'll try. That will spread some green inside the house.

  12. Ha, a big tree would never survive in my house with my rowdy kids and dog! But like you, I can see some of the plants from the first picture in my house...

  13. I kind of like the look of a little bit of both (big and small). I think greenery adds so much to a home. I've never been good with it though, so we don't really have any in our home--other than a few little topiaries, but not sure if those really count! :)

    Have a great day Anne!

  18. I like a few REAL indoor plants,but not too huge.Someone recently offered me a few and I turned them down,I would never have done that a few years ago but lately I prefer more simplicity and a big bunch of twigs in a corner!

  19. Your home is lovely. I enjoy indoor plants too. I feel like they give the house energy and they get me through the winter. Thanks for the interesting post!

  20. The indoor plants are so in at the moment! They are so fresh and bright. Though that last one is huge isn't it?! So glad to have discovered your lovely blog :)

  21. I'm definitely a small plant person. Maybe you could hang some smaller plants in a row instead of having one large one?
