4 TIPS FOR STYLING INDOOR PLANTS
Here's how to apply Plant Design
You can now dream of the effect that 'plant first' furnishing has. Now it's time to think about how to style your plants.
1. Cluster your best plants
The impact of four plants grouped together is much greater than when they’re spaced out around the store. Have a go, and see for yourself how your plants work together and contrast beautifully with one another. What do you like? What suits the showroom? Play with heights, and use a few different statement pots.
2. Arrange a colour palette
Houseplants come in a whole rainbow of colours spectrum of colours. Exciting, unusual combinations create an eye-catching feature. Look to incorporate Dracaena Bicolor, polkadot Begonia or the multicoloured Aechmea ‘Blue Rain’ into your design scheme, for an effect that will really stand out.
Extend your customers style to the choice of pot. Colour-matching muted ceramics to your plants or sourcing gilt Baroque containers will elevate your houseplant arrangement into a true plant design installation.
3. Play with shape and design
Another way to create a design feature out of your plants is to work with different shapes. A trio that work well together are Peperomia 'Happy Bean', Alocasia amazonica 'Polly' and Alocasia Lauterbachiana. Tiny succulents also create unusual feature plants. Cluster a Crassula marnieriana with a Pleiopilos 'Royal Flush' and Chlorophytum 'Bonnie' to create a display that feels almost alien.
There are many varieties of houseplant with beautiful shapes that deserve their reputation of natural works of art. Place them in a prominent place and watch how their presence single-handedly transforms the space. For more inspiration, discover these plants, all wonderful examples of nature's beautiful design work:
Calathea orbifolia, Calathea medallion, Monstera monkey mask, Rhipsalis horrida, Polkadot begonia, Zz plant, Strelitzia, and Alocasia zebrina.
4. Plot for functionality
Your plant design can also be about functionality. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, design should serve a purpose, after all. You could therefore build an indoor garden according to the plants’ effects, such as creating a relaxed area with round, soft shapes and soothing colours.
