Artificial Plants

Most of us are good with looking after plants but having them indoors can be a bit of a task. Consider the muddy water stains on the floors and walls and not to mention insects and mosquitoes making their way into your home. 

When you think of plants, and minus all the efforts, you’ve got artificial plants!

Faux plants are a great way of giving your house a fresh look without worrying about a plant’s life.

They aren’t just limited to resting on your floor. Apart from potted artificial plants, you can also get hanging planters to add some structure to the higher portion of walls that look empty.

If the decor and aesthetics of your home are minimalist; or have a bohemian or neutral-colored look, and you are looking to add a pop of color, green plants make all the difference.

You don’t have to worry about it fitting well with the different shades of your room.

The luscious green plants with varying heights and at different positions at your house add so much texture and dimension. Regardless of their shape and size, they add such a vibrant and fresh look to your home. Not to mention they look extremely sophisticated!

Only minimal work goes into hanging a tapestry but an endless stream of compliments that would follow!

Carpets or Rugs

You wouldn’t want to leave a wall empty now, do you? Paintings, picture frames, and many more fill the space to add structure and design.

Using a carpet that has a precise color that matches your furniture or room creates a sense of continuity to the color scheme.
