Plants at home: A growing trend

"Increasingly we’ve seen people getting involved in growing and bringing the outdoors in," says Clare Simmons IKEA magazine’s Digital Editor. "And it’s easy to see why. You don’t need a big space to bring nature to your life at home. Plus, plants and gardening can boost wellbeing, reconnecting you with life beyond the digital world. From creating ‘living’ walls with vertical gardens to plant ‘shelves’, here are some of our favourite ideas for getting started."

1. Give a green welcome.

Fill your entrance or hallway with greenery to welcome guests and blur the boundaries between outdoors and in. Try using indoor plants as a year-round base, mixing in fresh-cut flowers to update your space with the seasons.

2. Cultivate a natural library.

Display indoor plants like your favourite books and organise them by category, size and color to create a vibrant collection of plant ‘shelves’. Placing them near a window and stacking them high will maximise the light they get and create an interesting alterative to curtains.

3. Plant a wall garden.

Turn indoor growing into an art form. Hang plants and herbs from the walls and ceilings as an alternative to pictures and enjoy watching these living displays change before your eyes.

4. Set up a soothing potting table.

Give yourself an indoor growing space that doubles as a relaxing focal point in a room. Mixing pots and plants of different sizes creates a layered and personal look.

5. Show off your seedlings.

If you’re growing from seeds or young plants, displaying them as collections looks lovely while making it easier for you to tend to them. Try grouping them in crates or –for a super-sustainable idea– creating a suspended nursery from recycled water bottles.

6. Go bold with size and shape.

Create your own urban jungle by mixing lush plants of different colours, shapes and textures. Choose large, straight-growing types for height and overhanging ones to create a sense of abundance.
