Most of us love styling our home and work areas to create beautiful spaces that we’re more than happy to spend time in.
One of the best and easiest ways to transform a space is by using gorgeous plants in beautiful containers. And by using plants which also boost our well-being it’s a win win situation!
Be sure to incorporate air-purifying plants as they are known for their ability to remove toxins and create a healthier living environment. Our pick of air-purifying plants:
Heartleaf philodendron (Philodendron scandens)
Kentia palm (Howea forsteriana)
Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata)
Rubber plant (Ficus elastica) - pictured below
English ivy (Hedera helix)
Devil's ivy (Epipremnum aureum)
Spider plant (Chlorophytum)
Peace lily (Spathiphyllum)
Choose some plants with fragrance. Fragrances evoke memories- that hot summer in Provence or your Dad’s greenhouse for example, and fragrances can help to calm and soothe. Our pick of fragrant plants:
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Jasmine (Jasminum Polyanthum)
Gardenia (Gardenia Jasminoides)
Scented Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
Herbs such as Rosemary (Salvia Rosmarinus)
And be sure to mix textures and colours to create even more visual interest and impact when planning each grouping or tableau as our friends at Bergs Potter call this.
The Bergs Potter pots featured here are amongst our favourites. They are exceptionally well made, beautiful pots which if looked after will last a lifetime and become heirloom pieces to cherish.
We stock a range of their pots and vases, including these gorgeous glazed Helena pots in Pearl Grey and Quarts Rose, with their understated elegance and neutral colour they suit most plants and interiors.
