Hello , everyone and welcome back to my channel .
I'm Julie and we are doing things a little bit different today today , I'll be talking about how to style indoor plants in every room in your home .
Instead of this being a step by step , guide on what to do and not to do .
I really feel like you cannot get it wrong .
It's all about incorporating indoor plants in your home in cool creative stylish ways that add that much needed drama and improves the indoor air quality while you're at it .
Let's dive right into the different rooms .
Starting with the entry .
The entry is one of my favorite spaces to incorporate an indoor plant because it is the introduction to your home .
When guests step right into your entry , they could be met with this really beautiful console that's styled with a beautiful vignette that should feel personal and unique to your space for the entry .
Less is more .
If you have a small entry , think about a vignette of smaller potted plants in a grouping .
If you have a larger entry , think about an indoor plan that is proportional to the visual space in the room .
The goal for the entry should be warm and inviting .
You don't want to put a huge tree right in your entry that's going to block the passage into your space and you definitely don't want to style the entry with a teeny tiny potted plant that feels like it's engulfed in the space .
114.089 --> 187.82
I mean , that's not realistic to most of our homes .
Think of anchoring one corner of your living space perhaps next to the sofa or sectional with a taller indoor plan .
If you don't have a ton of space for a huge tall sprawling tree , think about a series of potted plants , whether or not they're hanging or sitting right on a coffee table .
Yeah , the key in the living room is to help balance the space out with your furniture placement and disperse potted plants .
So you're adding brightness and greenery to different corners of the living room .
If you're located in an area where you rarely use your fireplace instead of covering it up .
Think about styling it with a potted plant instead , floating shelves and hanging shells with an assortment of different types of indoor plants are great to fill a huge blank wall .
Don't underestimate the power of planters in your living room .
They make for really beautiful sculptural decor and don't take up a lot of space .
Moving on to the dining room .
The dining room typically doesn't have a whole lot of space for additional furniture , let alone a huge old plan .
So what I'd love to do is find an empty corner in the dining space to anchor a large tall tree .
Definitely don't leave the tree in its nursery pot and always look for a really beautiful pot or urn or vessel to transfer the tree right into what you're looking for is something that fits your aesthetic and vibe .
If you're not into a whole lot of decor , I love this idea of a living wall right in your dining room .
If you're in a studio apartment or an open concept space , think about using a bookshelf as a divider between your living room and dining space , you can then fill the bookshelf up with tons of plants in all shapes and sizes .
If minimal is more your style , think of a beautiful indoor plant that sits as the centerpiece for your dining table .
There's no wrong way to style indoor plants .
Look down , look to the sides and always look up for creative solutions .
Kitchens are one of my favorite areas to fill with indoor plants .
Most kitchens have a beautiful bright white window that is really conducive to helping these plants grow and thrive if you have floating shelves in the kitchen .
Think about layering plants in all different shapes and sizes , some trailing some upright and some indoor herbs while you're at it .
If you have upper cabinet tree with a ton of space above it , that's a perfect spot for plants with trailing vines .
A simple potted vessel with a beautiful bright green plant would be sufficient to add color to the space .
I love that .
Bohemian jungle .
Look for the bedroom , especially in smaller bedrooms , like apartments or dorms .
I think a variety of hanging plants just brings the outdoors in so beautifully try styling , a variety of indoor plants in one special corner of the bedroom or hanging it right above your dresser .
If you have a window with the ledge , that will be the perfect spot for a collection of your favorite indoor plants .
If you're looking for a little drama , why not incorporate a huge potted plant in the corner of the space ?
Moving on to your home office , the home office is typically a workspace that could definitely benefit from bringing the outdoors in .
You're seated at your workstation , you're not getting a ton of fresh air .
Think about creating your own version of an indoor garden .
Small potted indoor plants look great on bookshelves , mixed in with books and a few of your collectible items .
And lastly , we have the bathroom which is the perfect breeding ground for indoor plants .
They love the heat , they love the moisture and bonus points .
787.32 --> 861.45
So my home is filled with floor to ceiling windows .
I really benefit from all of the light that filters through my home and it's really conducive to my indoor jungle .
You'll notice that I don't have indoor plants on the innermost parts of my home just because they don't receive a whole lot of light .
I love to group my plants right in front of the windows where they receive ample light throughout the day , depending on the amount of bright light each plant needs .
I figure out the placement and the location from there .
My top two favorite indoor plants are really trees .
I mean number one at the top of the list is a fiddle leaf fig .
I have grown and potted so many fiddle leaf figs in my lifetime .
I mean , I have a few videos out on the channel .
Now , all about fiddle leaf fig hair and propagation techniques .
I love its large massive verdict green leaves .
It fills the space so beautifully .
They're modern and they have a very small footprint .
915.744 --> 984.179
I love that .
It gives you this really relaxed Italian countryside vibe without feeling very country at all .
The light sage colored leaves are perfect for neutral settings , especially if you have a ton of white in your space .
It's contemporary .
It's sophisticated .
But the downside is that it can only grow indoors .
A maximum of 8 to 9 years .
I'm not really sure what happens afterwards .
Maybe you move them outside , but a decade is really a substantial amount of time to really enjoy the beauty of the indoor olive tree .
Both the fiddle leaf fig and the olive tree needs ample sun .
We're talking about a minimum of six hours of indoor bright light a day .
The placement is best in front of a south facing window where they will receive all that beautiful bright light .
They both can grow really tall .
Olive trees can grow up to about 10 ft .
You remember the size of my little leaf big ?
I mean , it shot straight up into my ceiling before it started looming and bending over .
So clearly , if I had the height in this space , they would grow so massive .
The same thing with olive trees .
If you want them short and small , you could specify a dwarf tree or you really could just cut and prune them down to size when you have a small space .
Think about dividing plant groupings into small vignettes .
This will help you enhance the space , the character and the mood of each individual room .
If you have a larger space .
Think about a single tree that grows tall and large that will add the much needed drama and character to your room without cluttering the space at all .
Don't underestimate the power of simplicity .
I love allowing the shape of the plant and the size of the leaves to become its own sculpture .
This helps to ground each space without distracting from the furniture or views and also plays an important role in establishing an easy organic sense of flow .
I hope you got some good creative ideas on how to style your space with indoor plants .
Remember that indoor plants just like interior design is all about experimenting .
Check out the indoor garden section at your local nursery , your local hardware store .
I mean , even IKEA is chock full of indoor plants for you to mess around with .
I don't want you to get overwhelmed .
Just remember that every single type of indoor plant comes with a little care instruction right in the pot .
Sometimes it's a little tab that's sticking out right from the soil that tells you exactly the amount of light it needs when to water it , how much fertilizer it needs and just basic plant care .
When I first started out with my indoor jungle low , I watched a lot of videos from epic gardening .
I really love Eric's casual vibe and his simple super straightforward plant tips and plant Serena's channel needs no introduction .
She is an encyclopedia of plant knowledge .
So definitely check out those two channels if you want to dive a little bit more into indoor plant care .
I promise once you get the hang of it , you will start to get addicted .
There's really nothing like styling your entire home with indoor plants .
Not only does it improve the indoor air quality and it teaches your responsibility .
I feel like it's really great for mental health .
I want to end this video today with a little challenge for you .
Try going out to your local store whether or not it's a hardware store , IKEA your local nursery anywhere .
Just look for an indoor plant that you feel like you want to take care of .
You don't need to know a whole lot about it .
Maybe you're attracted to the color of the leaves , the shape of the , the leaves , the style of the plant , how full and lush it is .
Just pick one plant , bring it home and see how you do if you like this type of content and you want to learn more about indoor plants .
