By Caitlin Doyle
If you flip through any design magazine today you will surely notice a new greener trend — PLANTS!
If you’re looking to add this trendy design element to your space, here are a few tips on how to incorporate these top trending interiorscape elements into your own space.
Green Living Walls
Green living walls have become a major trend in the last year, and we expect to see even more of them, especially in corporate settings. A green wall is not only beautiful but will also reduce noise, purify the air and can help reduce your energy costs!
You will see that green living walls are popping up in hotels, restaurants, retail spaces and corporate offices because they are a relatively inexpensive and make a major impact.
Green living walls range in shape and size from a small plant portrait to whole walls.
On the tables, in the windowsills or terrariums, succulents are everywhere. The luscious plants are nothing new, but their prevalence seems to be on trend in mass plantings, floral arrangements or just hanging out by themselves in a cool container.
Succulents come in a large variety of shapes, colors and textures. Use these in your space by mixing a variety of these trendy plants. They can be used in rustic and modern locations alike. You will see succulents hanging out in everything from sleek modern planters to rustic pottery or metal containers.
Monochromatic Color Scheme
One of the most recent trends in Interiorscapes is the use of monochromatic containers. You will see this trend used in a modern office or boutique hotel.
A white container against a white wall allows the plants to speak for themselves and brings more attention to the form of the container instead of the color, but white is not the only color this works for. We are also seeing the use of black, grey and rich golden browns.
This trend pairs best with unique plant varieties. Think unique textures and forms, such as the large leaf of a Ficus Lyrata or the interesting trunk of the Open Weave Marginata.
Repetition of Plant Variety
Repetition may not sound like a very interesting design trend, but it creates a very dramatic statement when done correctly. When used in mass, the same variety of plant creates a cohesive modern design. This can be accomplished by utilizing the same variety in multiple containers throughout your space or you can also get the same effect by repeating the same plant in just a single planter.
For an ultra-modern look, use different varieties of Sansevieria. Sansevieria are low maintenance plants that can also handle very low light. This type of design is typically used for in spaces very modern and high-end spaces.
