Add the Brilliance of Succulents to Your Home
| Donna Page
Many have now discovered that decorating with plants is a great way to add a breath of fresh air to your home, and home decorators with an interest in interior design are embracing the trend of using succulents as part of their home décor. Savvy designers are increasingly experimenting with these versatile indoor plants to create unique textures in their homes. The growing popularity of using succulents in the home can be seen on social media platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr.
Why have succulents become so popular?
Succulents are hardy plants that are easy to take care of and can thrive without much water and attention. This is very important for those who have a busy life or are often out of the house. Succulents are perfect for the Australian climate, as they can live in almost any condition with minimal upkeep.
Succulents come in a wide variety of stunning colours and textures, making them an ideal choice for those looking to integrate natural aesthetics with their existing decors. Best of all, growing and maintaining succulents is easy. With just a little water every now and then and some attention to their placement, they will add brilliant colour and depth to your interior design.
There many ways to add style to your home using succulents.
Succulents can flourish indoors, as well as outdoors – they create variety, interest and energy wherever they are placed in your home! A selection of vase succulents can make a striking centrepiece on an indoor dining table or an outdoor table on a deck.
Succulents are versatile. You can style them to be rustic and exotic or modern and vibrant, depending on your needs and how you place them. For a more organic and laidback look, place them together on natural wood. You can get a more dramatic look by styling your succulents against a white or neutral background, and this can work wonders in injecting vibrancy into areas that traditionally look quite sterile, such as studies and kitchens.
Most of all, be adventurous in using succulents in your home. Combine various varieties in quality glassware with unique fillers that compliment your home’s style. Moving and recombining your pieces when you're inspired to will give you a constantly changing & refreshing look!
