Here at homify we often speak about the importance of turning your house or apartment into a home. A home is a place to feel welcome, comfortable and secure, as well as ensure it is a suitable base for rest and relaxation. But how exactly does one transform their dwelling into a cosy, inviting and hospitable abode?

There are plenty of different explanations to this domestic conundrum, but one wonderful and simple solution involves the addition of greenery and plants. Not only do plants bring a friendly and engaging aesthetic into your domicile, they also have plenty of beneficial advantages. Firstly, foliage assists in removing toxins from your home’s air, while purifying it to enhance the atmosphere in your dwelling. Secondly, they help regulate humidity, imparting moisture where it is needed, and soaking it where it is not. And finally, plants, foliage assist in creating a calm environment, which contributes to a sense of well being and happiness.

Whether you boast a green thumb or not, you can still achieve a fantastically frondescent ambience in your home through the addition of greenery. Read on below to learn more!

1. Add a mini garden beyond the glass

If you have limited space but the luxury of a small outdoor area, one smart way to get some green into your life is to plant next to the window. This way you get a hit of foliage both inside and out, without compromising precious indoor space.

2. Plenty of bright blooms

Nothing beats the classic, reliable charm of a bright bunch of blooms. Head to your local florist and pick up a collection of coordinated flowers or greenery, and add to your home at will.

If you want to make life easier (and a little luxurious), sort out a regular delivery program with your florist to ensure your dwelling is always replete with enlivening buds and blossoms.

3. A Zen garden

Zen gardens are a great way to add a calm and welcoming aesthetic, while also imparting a zest for life and enjoyment. Naturally restful and relaxing, a Zen garden is sure to impress and work its magic upon your home’s occupants.

4. Hanging plants

Hanging plants are brilliant if you lack surface space, or simply want to keep your home feeling open and airy. Choose interesting hangers, pick some hardy indoor plant varieties, and let the greenery do the talking.

5. The green wall

Green walls have been in and around the décor-sphere for many years now, but they never disappoint. Available in a range of different designs and stylistic options, a green wall is limited only by your imagination!

We adore this bedroom that maximises its space and sense of roominess with a luxuriously large vertical garden. 

6. A decorative corner
