1. FILL A CORNER

There’s no easier way to fill an empty corner in a room then to add a potted plant. In our Summit Creek Project, a fiddle leaf fig creates a modern sculptural look, while an olive tree in the hallway of Family Ties Custom Build feels classic.

2. STYLE WITH SUCCULENTS

Succulents are a favourite of ours. Small and compact, they are perfect for adding vibrant shades of green to every space. We often add them in the bathroom, on a nightstand, and in the kitchen. Here, in the utility room of our Family Ties Custom Build, we hung one a String of Pearls Succulent in the corner.

3. GO FAUX

Although my first choice is to always use fresh-cut stems or potted greens, there are times when real plants just won’t work. The good news is that fake plants have gotten much better–more realistic, less cheesy. So, if you have a windowless bathroom, a low-light basement, bad allergies, or just do not want to spend time maintaining house plants, you should not hesitate to style with faux plants.

4. LAYER WITH ACCESSORIES

A little potted plant helps fill out pretty vignettes. We love adding them to styled open shelves, with soap and hand towel in the bathroom, or on top of a stack of favourite books on the coffee table. Find places throughout your home that could use a little pop. On the desk of our Summit Creek Project Bunk Room, we used a little ZZ plant. This is the prettiest little plant that does great in low light and with sporadic watering.

5. GET THE LOOK WITH BOTANICAL ART

For a truly effortless look, get the vibe of fresh greens with botanical art. We love using plant prints especially in bedrooms and bathrooms to beautify the space.

6. DISPLAY FRESH CUT STEMS

Outside, the trees are blooming. Grab your scissors and cut some fresh stems. Stay all green if you want to emphasize texture. We love styling fresh greens in ceramic pots. Check out this post on why ceramics are so big this year. Or for colour and scent, add some spring blossoms to your space. We shared some of our favourite flowers to style with in this post and in the guide below.
