There is something innately uplifting and deeply gratifying about witnessing new growth. Bulbs emerge, and buds form as nature begins to unfurl and welcome the warmth and illumination of blue skies and sunshine. The promise of longer days presents fresh opportunities to venture out with a sense of wanderlust and adventure, making it easier to embrace the natural world's beauty.
Integrating the outside world into our homes can provide various benefits, from increasing oxygen levels and reducing stress to aiding in healing and bringing an air of optimism and energizing hope into our psyches. The nurturing relationship that results from keeping living plants thriving and healthy celebrates the experience of nature as an integrated design element.
"The human brain connects us to our best colour work intuitively. The familiar and overall palette of nature is an instant relaxer that connects to our sensory awareness, that actually resonates and affects us within 20 seconds."
Perhaps you can challenge yourself to what I refer to as a weekend "Speed Dial Design" makeover, which can easily be accomplished with a little pre-planning. Consider the benefits of using shades of green and living plants in your decor to add energy, character, colour, and texture.
Combination pairings that enrich each other select the palette first, then the placement.
Add in your living greens to any of these plants and greenery on different scales through the space i.e. table tops, mantles, on a pedestal base, grouped floor displays, or hanging tiered arrangements.
Balsam is a well-balanced, warm, medium tone. It's a “true” green that supports green, blue and yellow spectrum colours, but also maintains its own identity. -Philippa Radon, Interior Designer
