Hi there! Back in my post where I reviewed Wild at Home by Hilton Carter, a lot of people were interested to see how I style mine ! I don’t really have a particular structure for this post, it will mostly be a lot of pictures. Because I have no idea how to blog about interior design LOL.
EASY TO CARE PLANTS
The first thing I do : get easy to care indoor plants. Look, that’s how you learn. So don’t go and fancy some exotic bonzai if you don’t have any experience in keeping your plants alive. Here, I got a money tree sitting besides my armchair. It’s super easy to take care of a money tree, it needs light but don’t need to be watered often.
For more examples of easy to grow plants, you can check out my boyfriend’s instagram account here, he is way more obsessed about plants than me so feel free to ask him in his DMs any questions you have about plants!
VARIETY IN PLANTS
The second tip I’d give is to get plants at different heights and with different textures. Having variety is a good thing. For example, succulents are a great way to decorate the window frame because they’re often small and tiny and very resistant to sunburn.
In the picture below, it’s a Peace Lily and because of its size, we decided to put it besides the couch. It compliments the space between our couch and dining table.
Once you’re comfortable with your plants, you can gradually go ahead and start propagation. For examples, we bought a bunch of basils and we end up cutting some to reproduce it without seed. Here’s an example of how I propagate them: you just put the basils in some small vase with some water on it and wait for the roots to grow. Once you notice it grew abundantly, you can slowly move it to a real pot and put on soil.
For detailed instruction how to grow your own basil, I just watched this video right here.
I just started my plant journey and of course there are still a lot to be done! Do you intend to have indoor plants in your house/appt? Let me know what would you like to see next !
