Add House Plants 

Adding house plants may be the best way to get nature into your home. Ferns, succulents, cacti, orchids, aloes are just one of the few plants that grow and flower indoors. It offers you a huge option that allows you to breathe life into any space. 

There are many different plant decoration options you can try in your home. For example, you can decorate the inside of your house with plants and flower vines as feature pieces. Remember to not go overboard with the vines, as they can very easily make it appear as if you prefer living in the jungle. Keep it simple, modern and fresh.

You can create an indoor garden by installing different plants all over your home. Plants can be attached to countertops, hung from walls, put on tables, in pots on the floor and many other areas. Aim to get a few plants in each room and remember to use a variety of choices.

If you live in a small apartment or unit where you struggle with space, you would be better off with a terrarium. A terrarium is a container packed with dirt, soil, stones and small slow-growing plants and is a unique way of adding plants to your home. You can either build your own or purchase a ready made terrarium.
