Updated: Sep 3, 2019
Houseplants have a way of adding light, warmth and beauty to any space. That is why we are all obsessed with green-filled interiors! If you are searching for some new ideas to adorn your apartment, here are ten great ways to decorate with plants.
1. Don't leave that corner empty
Consider adding one or two large plants to that blank corner: it's the missing piece to your puzzle! If you have any areas of your home that are unfilled, creating a little plant nook will transform a dull space into a tiny indoor garden.
2. Make it geometric
Geometric pots are the cutest. They look perfect on a desk or as the centerpiece on a dining table. Choose different colors and different shapes, and have fun matching them!
3. Hang it up!
Choosing a hanging pot will make your plant pop, and it will add a new layer to your decor. It looks even better when paired with a cascading plant!
4. Fill your shelves
Shelves can become a fantastic set up for an indoor garden. Get rid of those old knick-knacks and replace them with some greenery. Shelves are for plants!
5. A stairway to green
If not too shady, consider adding some houseplants to your staircase! This solution will make your stairs look warmer and more welcoming.
6. Make your own containers
You can grow plants in almost anything: for example, you can create a lovely book planter (here the complete tutorial), or some paper flower pots as the ones in the picture. Read this post for some more DIY ideas!

Okay, probably this is the most common solution you have seen around. Still, such a neat and elegant option! Get a large plant and place it next to the sofa. It will instantly freshen up your living room!
