7 simple interior decorating techniques with plants

An article for those who want more green and beautiful. For those who have already bought beautiful plant pots, but do not know what to do next. We have chosen a few simple but effective techniques that will help to decorate the house and make it more comfortable.

Create a gang

Those with more than four plants are advised to put them together in the first place. Imagine taking a family photo: tall adults in the back, children in the foreground. Place a prickly cactus, a banana palm, a patterned calathea, a fluffy dracaena and a burgundy triangular acid plant next to it – you get a motley company. Don’t forget the famous design trick: a group of an odd number looks more interesting.

And plants look even more interesting next to other decorative elements. An unusual vase, fresh flowers, or a collection of objects together look attractive and casual.

Play with height



Okay jungle!

Even if the plant looks good on the floor, place it on a chair, a stack of books or magazines. It will become taller, more expressive, more like a jungle. Make a room divider with plants by placing them on a stand or box with legs. Tall, upright plants such as sansevieria are best suited for this purpose.

You can play with height using hanging planters and tall pots. Or put a plant on a cabinet. An additional plus is that pets cannot reach it.

If you have a lot of old and not very valuable books, you will love this idea! Stack the books and place plants on top of them. This photo shows an example where the board is placed for greater height.

Hang plants

Instead of placing plants on a table or windowsill, hang them from the ceiling. This creates an interesting variety and saves valuable floor space. Three or more suspended medium to large plants look amazing. If the ceiling can’t support this weight, hang the pot on the cornice in front of the window, or stretch metal wire between the walls.

In a small apartment, you can free up the floor by placing plants on chairs, side tables, special stands and hanging them from the ceiling.

If you’re a jack of all trades, make a floating shelf above your dining table. A wooden board, ropes and ampelous plants are all you need. For greater beauty, you can build lamps into the shelf.

Group plants by type

If you love cacti, put them together, not randomly around the house. Or, suppose you are a lover of tropical aroid plants and have collected a large collection. Place them on a round table in the best place for them and do not remove the sprayer. By grouping plants according to your needs, you make it easier to care for them.

Add color

Green is not your favorite color? Next time, take a closer look at the store: there are many plants in other colors, such as burgundy, pink, red, white and orange. Have a colorful live exhibition at home. Croton, triangular oxalis, royal begonia, caladium, fittonia, pink princess philodendron, hanging and pale tradescantia, leafy hypoesthesia, purple pearl echeveria, coleus, orange ginura and aglaonema pink aniamanema differ in the original color.

Make a plant shelf

Is there anything cuter than shelves of trinkets and plants? Not always. But just look: the plants can stretch up or fall, the pots can be placed on stacks of books and a beautiful candle can be added, a souvenir from a trip, a clock … whatever. Plant shelves are beautiful and practical: they are convenient for storing everyday items and displaying works of art.

Plants with artwork, baskets, ethnic ceramics, glass domes against a green backdrop are the perfect combination for a home office shelf.

Place a botanical throne

When everything is in order with the plants, you can rest, enjoying their presence. Find a cozy corner at home, put a sun lounger there and surround it with large plants, adding them until you get a jungle feeling. Then bring a coffee table, grab a book and your favorite drink, and have fun.

How not to swear over money, children, sex and paper envelope

How not to swear over money, children, sex and paper envelopes

How not to swear over money, children, sex and paper envelopes

We’ve had a lot of books about relationships, but none has ever made you laugh like that.

Belinda Luscombe has been writing about relationships for Time magazine for 20 years. And she actively practiced them: her marriage is almost 30 years old. So she discovered six areas that cause the most problems – everyone: intimacy, quarrels, finances, family, sex, mutual assistance.

In the book “Happiness Together” – instructions for technical inspection of relationships. Is everything going as it should or is it time to “change the oil”? There are many situations from family life in which you will probably recognize yourself, and tips to fix anything that is junk. With a fair amount of humor.

Do we have envelopes?

Happiness together

“My husband Jeremy does it with envelopes,” Belinda says. – Every time he asks if we have envelopes, although I have already shown him a thousand times where they are. On the shelf. Next to the handles. So what? My husband, going to send a letter, each time asks: “Do we have envelopes?”

Why can some trifle, insignificant imperfection in a loved one drive you to a frenzy? Because a wedding is not a happy ending at all. Married life is like clearing a path of snow: you start out full of enthusiasm, but it turns out that the activity requires much more endurance.

Of course, people get tired of relationships. This is as natural as the fact that food goes bad and the fire goes out. But we have learned to preserve food and keep the fire going. So you can come to an agreement with nature.

We are Incorporated

Imagine your marriage is a business partnership, “We Are Incorporated.” You manage finances together. Manage children together. Both of you are managers of your property – apartments, villas, cars. You combine the duties of a chef, taxi driver, travel agent and teacher.

Use proximity as a weapon, not a weapon. Cultivate a team spirit – it helps you achieve results in tedious and tedious tasks. Discuss resentments and grievances. This means that you spend time with a person not because it is pleasant, but because you create something together – a marriage, a family, a couple.

This is called “relational thinking,” and it is the key to a long and happier marriage.

Two imperfections

Children are a laborious project, like putting together a three-dimensional puzzle, which also snaps and throws dirty clothes all over the apartment. One mother once said that upbringing is as much teamwork as robbing a bank: “One is robbing, the other is driving a car that will be used to get away.”

But remember, you are not together because of the children. Sometimes go on vacation without them. And remind yourself that it’s a good idea to nominate your partner sometimes.

If you think your partner is a lousy parent, try to moderate the criticism. After all, your skills are hardly perfect. This is the great meaning of having two parents: they bridge each other’s shortcomings.

Have a fight? Eat something

Belinda once asked Mark Zuckerberg what changed when Sheryl Sandberg, the first woman on the board, came to Facebook. Mark said: after her arrival, they forgot what hunger is. She made sure that there was always food on the tables during meetings.

Here’s a lesson from one of the richest women in the world: Never start an important conversation on an empty stomach.

If the relationship is broken

“Repairing” a marriage is exhausting. Sometimes it seems that getting a divorce is easier, as it is easier to buy new headphones than to untangle the wires from those that are. But think about this.

Scientists found 645 unhappy couples, and after 5 years they interviewed them. It turned out that those who got divorced did not feel happier than those who kept their marriage. And the couples who stayed together were glad they hadn’t parted.

Our thinking is aimed at solving problems, although in reality we need a different kind of thinking, “carousel”: now your horse is down, but wait a little – and it will rise again.

What else

The book “Happiness Together” will surely appeal to those who appreciate humor. Belinda will make you laugh more than once and look at relationships from a different – more funny – angle. Family life can be boring, it can be difficult, but add a healthy dose of self-irony and it turns out that everything is not so bad.

Despite the humor, the conversation will go on the most serious topics, and you will find a lot of practical advice.

  • Life lessons from the cat litter box
  • “Financial violence against a partner”: how not to swear over money
  • After hardship comes real hardship: parenting
  • What the marriage ninja do
  • Marriage without sex: the intimate side of union
  • What to do if cheating occurs

We don’t find soul mates like beautiful seashells on the beach. We become soul mates. One of us is waves, the other is sand, and together we form a wonderful beach. Marriage means that you have tied your destiny with someone and said to this person: “It looks like the journey with you will be exciting.” So make it that way.
