THE ART OF HOUSEPLANT DESIGN
On its own, a plant is just a plant without Establish a visual connection between your plants. Add another and it becomes a display.
But what distinguishes a random selection of plants from a piece of design that can engage the eye and evoke the mood of your living space?
The answer is to establish a visual connection between your plants using the four design elements below.
Use size and proportion to create a display.
Choose same-sized plants for balance and symmetry, or use plants of different sizes to draw the eye and create flow and movement.
Choosing plants with similar shapes can create beautiful, natural patterns, while contrasting shapes can be used to sculpt displays with a sense of drama
Color interacts with color in a way that color in isolation does not.
Use that interplay to find soft, harmonious shades or build a more energetic, contrasting palette.
A plant’s texture can have visual as well as tactile appeal, as it determines how the foliage interacts with the light. Mix and match different textures to add depth to a display.
