Love nature and large indoor plants?
When it comes to making design statements at home, most of the items worth doing are worth overdoing. That’s how we feel about large indoor plants: It’s certainly better not only because they offer countless styling possibilities, but also because of their many health benefits. Research published in the Journal for Environmental Psychology showed that those who work in offices with plants and windows have a higher degree of concentration than those who do not have access to the natural environment.
And just as we love a splash of nature at the terrariums, tiny succulent gardens, and tabletop flower arrangements, large indoor plants and trees can bring so much more floor-to-ceiling elegance to any room, sprinkling up neutrals with lush green color. The natural texture and height that large indoor plants add to the room make them our new favorite way to bring in the outdoors. Browse six large indoor plant ideas below so you can start brainstorming your own theme.
Reach for the Beams
These glossy planters deliver just the right touch of personality in a creamy, honeysuckle-tinted white and blue-tinted ash.
Why not maximize high ceilings and exposed beams with a giant tree reaching towards the sky? The height of the tree draws the eye upward to reveal the architectural lines of the ceilings. The shades of cream and natural wood finish in this living room help to accentuate the perfect green floor-to-ceiling centerpiece (even if it is tucked away in a corner). We just love it being right at the side door entrance to the yard. As you reach the room, the leaves ease the transition by bringing the outdoors inside, which also plays with the sun-faded neutral color palette.
A goldfish planter is ideal for both conventional and eclectic spaces—it can either put in a quirky aspect or dress up things depending on how you design it and what you pair it with.
Find Your Natural Nook
In order not to create too many color comparisons, the white ceramic planter seamlessly complements the white walls. It takes to new heights the natural wood characteristics in the room while also adding a casual, natural touch to complement the sleek, elegant décor and bold color pops.
White planters are the ideal pedestal for your favorite indoor plants, with soothing, neutral colors and an eye-catching gloss finish.
The Sky Is the Limit
We completely love everything about this toilet. From the Victorian foot bath to the area rug’s coastal vibes and the crisp white tiles. But the true argument is the tree’s proportion. Almost overgrown as it snakes with uneven branches toward the ceiling, this large indoor plant in a cool, minimal space is an unexpected touch of nature. When you close your eyes and relax after a long day in a bubble bath, you almost forget that you’re still indoors.
Consider Citrus Farm to Table
A large indoor plant can really help to divide the open layout into two spaces. In this scenario, while the more casual kitchen is somewhat divided by the citrus tree, the living room and dining room merge into one another. Its bulbous shape also adds instant character to the room, generating motion from the floor to the ceiling. Opt for one that fits your signature style when choosing the right tall tree for your house. This one, much like the space it resides in, is new yet timeless and chic yet understated.
In a plain, minimal room, a metallic planter makes a tall tree shine or stand out in a crowd of eclectic furniture and bright colors.
To build the illusion of a big tree with a slightly smaller alternative (or one that is still in the growth phase), make sure that nothing else in the room reaches its height. As you can see in this dining room, the lamp on the console table is as tall as the vine. This metallic emerald lamp also has a stylish job of reflecting the natural beauty of the tree across the room. Similarly, the large indoor plant produces a juxtaposition of natural, earthy vibes, classic metallics, and elegant velvet and marble.
Get the Green Light
Greenery is a chic contrast to cool gray shades in the abstract painting above the sofa. And despite the many interesting textures of the room, the vibrant color palette, and the eclectic mix of styles, this large tree holds its own. The size variation is perfectly balanced, from tree to large-scale wall art to smaller decorative parts and floor-to-ceiling windows.
These ideas will definitely make you easily decorate large indoor plants for your home. If you have a wide range of large indoor plants, there’s no reason not to try these tips. If you do not have any houseplants in your home, it’s time to equip them as they have a lot of health benefits and aesthetic values.
