Creative Ways to Add Greenery Into the Home

Adding plants into your home not only adds greenery but enhances your quality of life as well. Plants purify the air, help you breathe easier and generally improves happiness. So ditch those ceramic pots and try these creative ways of incorporating plants into your home. 1. Find a chest that can display airplants using drawers as pots and the others for storage. This is a playful way to give an old piece of furniture new life. 2. A living wall is a stunning way to display greenery. Although they do take some maintenance, living walls are a dramatic way to replace your typical canvas or framed art. 3. The Moss Table is aesthetically pleasing and may someday have the ability to power household appliances. The soil within the pots contain charged particles which can be channeled into an electric current.

Updating a Room with One Wall and One Color

Accent walls are a great way to generate visual interest and create a focal point in any room. From bold colors that can create drama to subtly contrasted walls, accent walls are a simple way to update a room without breaking the bank. Pairing a dramatic red accent wall with cream can add romance to any master bedroom, while an orange accent wall in a kid’s playroom can stimulate a child’s creativity and bring life into the area. Try using a soothing light blue or neutrals with a brown accent wall in a guest bedroom to turn it into a tranquil retreat for visitors.

4 Ways to Make your Hallway Come to Life

Hallways are part of your home too so don’t neglect them when designing your house. Many times they are used as an art gallery or a place to display family pictures so why not glam them up a bit? Here are 4 ways to transform your hallway from dreary to dazzling. 1. Don’t be afraid of using a fun wallpaper. Because you don’t spend enough time in halls, you won’t grow tired of the pattern and it gives a little pick-me-up from one room to the next. 2. Creating a magnificent focal point at the end of a particularly long hallway helps to distract from the length as well as offers a destination point. 3. If you want guests or family members to linger in the hallway create built-ins that can display everything from photos to artwork as well as offer seating to browse through a magazine. 4. Finally, an easy way to make any hallway more fun is to add a bright and colorful rug. If you can’t find one long enough try adding a few side-by-side to create a faux runner.
