I love the idea of a greenhouse or conservatory style in a living space. In fact, that my future dream home in my head has one. There’s something about bringing the outdoors in in the bitterest season of the year that seems so calming and lush. I know plants make me happy and calm.
We can still incorporate that feeling of greenhouse or conservatory style into our own decor. It takes adding bits of living green with more industrial and romantic finds for a “collected feel.” Adding lots of plays is key.
Achieving true conservatory style involves adding green and natural elements such as ferns and moss.
Intersperse with natural wood, concrete and metal urns for an outdoor feel and use .live flowers and potted bulbs to bring life in.
I love this above picture with the clusters of bulbs and their moss bases.
Bringing it into your home can be as simple as adding a few more plants and cloches. If you have allergies, you can even bring in some faux plants, I won’t tell!
Lovely larger plants as well such as the fiddle leaf fig really add some much needed green and height. I am very good at killing them!
This room at DesignAddictMom has a beautiful fiddle leaf fig!
Adding touches of green furniture can fill in when there aren’t as many plants and can ground the room the same as black as does botanical images and pictures. It’s a lovely way to feel a bit of spring in the winter cold. Botanical pictures, like these,can bring the green up the walls and clustered in large groupings has amazing impact.
Cloches can add a nice contrast of sparkle to the room and bounce light with the green plants.
Cloches clustered together have nice impact as well.
And don’t forget fresh flowers!!!
I love the idea of adding some of these elements into my home as the temperature drops. I might even try to see if I can kill another Fig plant. 🙂
