Interior styling – how to houseplant
Over previous years, we have seen an outstanding growth in the demand for indoor houseplants. Furnishing your home with an aesthetic and wild edge, house plants have become an integral element within a variety of interior styling designs. However, as well as being wonderfully decorative elements, house plants also encourage a number of wellbeing benefits.
Renowned for their abilities to boost your home’s air quality, houseplants have also been significantly praised for their power to reduce symptoms of anxiety and improve mental health. It has even been found that just the process of your body visually acknowledging a plant can both reduce stress and allow you to achieve a greater sense of calm.
So, what are the favourites for 2023? According to House Beautiful UK, Peace Lilies were found to be the second most popular house plant to be sold in 2022 and this popularity is expected to carry forward again into 2023.
Scientifically known as ‘Dracaena trifasciata’, snake plants are another species predicted to boom in popularity over the coming months. Known for their low-maintenance qualities, snake plants require little water and display a glorious vertical flourish of lime green leaves to enhance your home’s tranquil ambience.
With an increased emphasis on climate change and environmental struggles projected within the media, we can see huge eco-friendly shifts in communal attitudes. Therefore, where better place than the garden to begin playing your part for the environment? An area with so much opportunity and where so many people are turning to exercise a variety of sustainable choices.
Maybe you have a large patch of land that currently goes unused? Why not reinvent this space with a glorious wildflower meadow? Flourishing a palette of unique colour and textures, wildflower meadows are packed full of pollinators which encourage both wildlife and ecosystems to congregate within your grounds.
When incorporating hard landscaping elements within your garden’s design, there are also ways where you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint. When choosing specific paving stones, there are a range of recycled and low-carbon materials for you to choose from that frame a polished and refined garden scene (ensuring that your garden looks fabulous whilst being kind to the environment!). Obtained directly from the ground, using natural stone is another extremely eco-friendly alternative from many man-made materials that require toxic chemicals within their manufacturing process.
Since the days of the pandemic, gardens have been recognised even more for their importance and usability than ever before. No matter the season, we have noticed a huge demand in people desiring to utilise their gardens all year round. And so they should!
