Nowadays, the use of plants in modern interior design is more and more popular. Plants add life and colour to any area, creating a calmer environment and a happier, more welcoming and inviting atmosphere.
Instinctively, we instantly feel more at home, more comfortable and more relaxed in a space that incorporates greenery, whether we are aware of it or not.
Indoor plants can be used as accent pieces, for example to soften an area or alternatively, to create a dramatic effect or expression as a statement piece.
Apart from the obvious aesthetic appeal of having plants around us, plants benefit us in ways we don't often think about.
They breathe life into a space and play a role in enhancing the overall health and wellbeing of its inhabitants, with a great deal of scientific studies showing the many benefits that plants have on us humans.
They've been proven to boost moods, increase creativity, productivity and playfulness, reduce stress, anxiety, depression and illness, AND eliminate air pollutants—meaning a healthier, happier you.
The modern lifestyles and city living that we are accustomed to in todays' society mean that we spend around 90% of our time indoors, often disconnected from nature and how we once lived as a species.
By adding plants and flowers to the environment that we live and work in, we are connecting ourselves back with the links to nature that we so intrinsically need and crave, benefitting from them in ways we don't even realise (especially throughout the Autumn and Winter when we spend even more time indoors.)
Indoor plants don't just look good—they make us feel good, too.
