Style My Space: Greenery

Style My Space: Greenery

Welcome to the final Style My Space July feature.

One of the ways to update a home when you have a minimal budget is to focus on accessories or accent pieces especially in a lounge/living room setting. Adding some curtains, mirrors and greenery is one of the ways I believe can really rake up a room’s confidence. The first post in the series looked at choosing and hanging curtains while last week’s one focused on mirrors. This last one of the series, will cover greenery.

Greenery (plants) is one of the most important elements in a room. Why? Because they provide so many benefits in your space. I’m not sure if this is across all cultures and races, but when I was younger, my mother had numerous big house plants in the corners of all our entertainment rooms. I know that a number of my friends had a similar setting in their childhood homes too. She watered these plants twice a week herself and then instructed everyone around her to leave her wonderful work alone. When I grew slightly older, she entrusted me, by her instruction, with one of the watering days. Now we live in an age where artificial plants look so much like the real thing. We are also extremely busy that not only do we not make time to water plants, we don’t even buy them as often as we used to. Although she no longer has house plants, my mother still makes time to water her little townhouse garden.
