The positive aspects of landscaping
Even when frost is cracking outside or annoying rain is knocking, we can feel ourselves in a summer garden or a blossoming greenhouse. And all this is thanks to living plants.
It is impossible to overestimate their role in the design of a residential building. They decorate the home and at the same time bring great benefits, saturating the air with oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide.
And this is far from all the benefits that they can bring. Green spaces improve our well-being, especially for urban residents who cannot afford to just go out into the forest or wander around the park. Fresh bright greens and the aroma of flowers can cheer up anyone.
But with all the love for plants, you need to design your home so that everything blends seamlessly with each other: flowers, decor, furniture. You need to choose some specific style and stick to it.
In addition, you need to know which plants live well together and which cannot adjoin. One needs a lot of sun, for others, on the contrary, direct rays are undesirable. Some need abundant watering, while others are contraindicated in excessive moisture. You should also think about the containers in which the plants live. Vases and pots should fit the size of the root system. All these nuances must be taken into account. And then your plants will bring you only positive emotions.
How to choose a plant
Indoor plants firmly occupied their niche in the design of housing. Their selection is so great that it is very easy to get lost in this variety. Therefore, you need to imagine what style you prefer, and, based on this, choose flowers.
Today, the orchid is especially popular, it will decorate any interior. And its colors and shades are striking in their variety - white, blue, purple, pink, yellow.
Camellia can be attributed to the same flowering and pleasing with its beauty. Many pay tribute to fashion and decorate their space with such species as clivia, stefanotis, ehmeya, gardenia.
Exotic does not lose its relevance. Many, loved the palm, monstera, dracaena. Someone prefers to use hippeastrum and anthurium in their interior.

Good humidifiers are considered dracaena and violets. In addition, they perfectly enliven any space.
In the design of various premises, both single plants and compositions are used. It all depends on the space to be designed.
Not so long ago, the use of artificial flowers seemed something old-fashioned , devoid of taste. All due to the fact that they were made from the simplest cheap materials. Now the fantasy of manufacturers of this type of decor knows no bounds. And artificial flowers are visually very difficult to distinguish from living.
For many, their use is considered convenient, since they do not require care, except for wet cleaning. But not in every room they will be appropriate, you need to consider all the features of the interior.
In rooms for various purposes
When decorating your house or apartment, think carefully about which house plants are suitable, for example, for the living room, bedroom, kitchen, hallway.
Before embodying your ideas, find out if a particular room is suitable for a particular flower by the presence of light, humidity, air and other criteria. Learn how to care for the plant, then to save yourself from unnecessary troubles and worries. Unfortunately, not everyone has flowers. If your style is minimalist, a ficus is right for you. An unpretentious plant will decorate your living room and provide it with oxygen. Other plants with thickened stems will also look good.
Classic home plants include monstera and saintpaulia.
Do not overload the space with flowers, even if you really love them.
In the bedroom you should not arrange a flowering garden. It is enough to place species such as aloe and Kalanchoe there. They will create a wonderful microclimate. If the size of the bedroom is small, and there is no place for floor plants, you can place small pots on the bedside tables, dressing table, windowsill. Leave lilies and ferns for other rooms. Their ability to absorb oxygen at night and emit carbon dioxide will not do you any good.
Almost all housewives love to decorate the kitchen, and rightly so. After all, the whole family gathers here for dinner or evening tea. Therefore, it should be beautiful and cozy.
Choose plants competently, and correctly decorate the kitchen so that green spaces do not interfere with you, but at the same time create a mood.
Heat-loving plants take root here well. If you plan to place some of them on the windowsill, then choose those that need light.
A stove and a sink are not a place where colors will be convenient.
Strongly motley and lush vegetation is best avoided, as well as those flowers that have a strong aroma. Here you can experiment and try the style that is closer to you: minimalism, modern, oriental luxury.
Usually in the kitchen bouquets of fresh flowers look great. Sunflowers, poppies, tulips. Choose what is closer to you. Compositions of dried flowers will also be appropriate. You can use wall garlands and flower arrangements.
You can create comfort and harmony even in the bathroom. And gentle ivory orchids will help.
Another place where the flowers are quite appropriate is the entrance hall. Nothing limits you in your choice if there is enough light in the hall. But most often this is not so, therefore it is better to place shady copies here. It can be fatsia, peperomiya, arrowroot, dracaena, sansevier.
If you have a spacious entrance hall, decorate it with ferns. If there is a problem with the place, then the small flowers on the shelves and special stands will look very harmonious.
Design art can transform your space. Feel like an artist, do not be afraid to experiment and use the original decor.
Spring is a great occasion to place flowering branches of cherries or apple trees in tall vases.
Summer makes it possible to enjoy the beauty and smells of bouquets of roses, lilies, peonies. They can be placed on the desk in the office, and on the dining room in the dining room.

Pay attention to some tips that may come in handy when decorating your home.
One beautiful plant can decorate a room and constantly attract the eye. But if you add to it several other types, it may lose its attractiveness.
Small plants cannot be planted with a large tree. They will be lost, even if they are unusually beautiful. It would be better if you create an ensemble from them.
For each flower, choose the perfect capacity. There are many options: baskets, decorative pots, planters.
And think about exactly where the plant will be located - on the windowsill, shelf, coffee table, dressing table.
There are indoor plants that delight with their long and frequent flowering. These include delicate violets, lush geraniums, large-flowered fuchsias. These representatives of the flora have a lot of varieties, which allows you to choose the color and size that you prefer to see every day in your rooms.
Climbing plants are able to revive the interior and add coziness: tradescantia, asparagus, chlorophytum. With their help, you can decorate an empty wall or part of the furniture, create a shadow on the window, they can braid all kinds of stands.
If you need a twist, pay attention to yucca, dracaena and cicada. Looking like palm trees, these compact plants will look original in any environment.
Remember that very large plants are appropriate only in spacious rooms. Lemon, orange, coffee trees, Dieffenbachia will create a special mood. Halls, halls, greenhouses, pools are suitable for their placement. They will definitely not decorate a small room, but will only create problems and will feel uncomfortable.
