11. Lush relaxation for oneCreate the feel of a tropical lounge or quaint hideaway with a green wall. The single sunny yellow lounge chair keeps the small lounge room decor minimal – put your feet up with a book or music for some serious one-on-one time.
Surround yourself with pots and plantsWelcome nature into your home with the vitality and soothing feel of greenery. A terrace garden, potted plants along the kitchen window, wall inserts or even huge planters at the entrance of your home can bring a feel of being surrounded by nature’s bounty. “You can choose potted plants for corners and shelves, and terrariums as centre pieces or even on the walls. Group together an Aspidistra elatior (cast-iron plant), an Anthurium, a Dieffenbachia or that old stalwart, the Ficus tree. Even a single Amaryllis bloom can have a luminous, magical effect,” Chhabria says .When you bring in the beautiful chaos of greenery, it is best to opt for clean lines in furniture to keep a balance in the space. Tip: “Larger plants can be used in open places to highlight a particular area, to create a division or to bring in the illusion of lushness. Smaller plants can be used to pepper the space with colour, with the use of innovative/decorative planters, and to create smaller focus points,” Chhabria suggests.
