I love being in nature, especially hiking in the redwoods or walking along the beach. I especially love going on treks in a foreign country where I get to explore the beautiful local landscape of magnificent mountains, lush green hills, and colorful fragrant flowers. Since I love being in nature, I naturally enjoy seeing designs that incorporate plants in a residential or commercial space. There’s something so refreshing, peaceful, and calming about them. They add life, movement, texture, and good positive energy into any space. Plus, they help clean the air, lower your risk for illnesses, boosts your mood, and promotes healing. Plants are great for a corner area or an awkward space. Here are 5 tips for decorating with plants bringing beauty, character, and connection into your home or office environment.

Summer has arrived and it’s time to think about how to spruce up your outdoor decor. Whether it’s replacing old furniture, bringing in more color, gardening, or adding landscape lights, it’s a perfect time to start. But, what if you don’t have a backyard or a patio? Not everyone lives in a home that has a backyard or patio. For those of you who don’t have the luxury of having an outdoor space to entertain family or friends or enjoy the benefit of lounging outside to admire the beautiful landscape, you can still bring the decor and fun indoors. You can transform your interior space into an outdoor oasis full of colors, nature, texture, and light. Here are some ideas to bring sound, sight, touch, and smell of the outdoor experience into your very own living space!
Fragrant Flowers & Plants
What’s better than coming home to a relaxing, beautiful, and fragrant home as if you just stepped out in nature? Surround yourself with flowers, plants, succulents, bonsai trees, or cacti and watch your home transform into a lovely garden. Plus, indoor plants are very beneficial and a positive force. They are living organisms that remove pollutants from the air by absorbing gases (such as carbon dioxide) through their leaves and roots. Perhaps that is why when most people take a walk outside or go hiking, it feels so calming and soothing to the soul and instantly lifts the spirit.
