Create a collection of plant life.
A quick way to perk up a room is to add plants. Plants bring a fun punch of color and help clean the air. Now if you are thinking, “I’m nothing but a brown thumb,” don’t worry. There are a few plants that are just about impossible to kill. In fact, they do better if you just leave them alone.
I love the pothos. It grows like a weed, handles a variety of light conditions and tells you when it needs water. If the leaves look droopy, give it a drink. It is also easy to take clippings and make new plants.
I bought this hens and chicks pot from the local French market. I love how it looks like little flowers.
I also love a succulent like aloe or a hens and chicks (hens and chicks are small, succulents that look like roses and they shoot off sprouts or chicks). Give it a sunny home and a little water, and it will be happy forever. And by little water, I mean a tiny sip once a month. Succulents often meet their end by drowning. In fact, during the winter, don’t water them at all.
For room impact, group your plants together. Vary the stand sizes and see how easy it is to look like a green goddess.
