25 Indoor Plant Display Ideas: Part 1
Indoor plants can liven up any room in your house – from textural ferns and trailing foliage to large-leafed beauties. With Indoor plant ideas, you can lower stress levels, replenish the air and enhance the appearance of your home. Moreover, indoor plants provide a chance for hands-on creativity.
The act of caring for plants and surrounding ourselves with indoor garden ideas help us re-establish a connection with nature. A connection to the natural world is more important today than ever, according to the Botanical Boys. There is no denying that nature is essential to life – it keeps us alive in a fast-paced, fragile world. Yet, it is crucial that everyone is able to connect with nature at some level and by doing so, also positively impacts their own health and well-being.
Plants can be enjoyed indoors in all their benefits. From tiny bonsais to stately palms and figs, there is definitely room for a leafy beauty or two – whether it’s to brighten up a mantlepiece, use light coming through a window or even separate a home. You can use them to add contrast and texture to the simplest decor, transform a boring set of shelves into a stunning feature, or jazz up a coffee table or kitchen island.

Create a centrepiece with ferns
An elegant potted fern makes a lovely centrepiece for a dining table. Every dining table should have a beautiful centerpiece to set the mood. In a sumptuous room with dark hues, this potted fern contributes a colorful pop of life.
Adding a simple yet elegant feature to any dinner party, late brunch or simple work day’s breakfast will make it that much more special. Among the best indoor plants right now, ferns are classified as one of the best. Among the varieties to choose from, the Boston fern is a popular and easy-to-care-for choice, but there are other stunning options such as the delicate maidenhair.
Plant up a picture
By using plants as living art, you can see plants from a new perspective. This clever frame can house two plants, making it perfect for sprucing up a plain wall or adding a natural touch to a functional space.
Place them tightly together in rows or grids, so that the plants can cover the planting spaces, evoking the impression of a lush living wall. Similar-toned plants work best; they will conceal the planting pockets. As an alternative, you can create paintings by choosing colourful foliage (try devil’s ivy and Philodendron) and spreading the frames evenly apart.
Hang them up high
This is for you plant lovers – if you have unused ceiling space, this is the perfect opportunity to utilize it. Our favorite part is how the fresh foliage fills this conservatory with the freshness of the outdoors.
The vines that grow on the trailers and on the ferns make up a lush canopy because their containers and baskets are attached to beams above. In the meantime, large potted plants line the room’s borders, framing the seating arrangement.
How did it turn out? With its soft neutrals and the soothing tones that enhance green tones, this colour palette appears totally inviting.
Mix up your pots
Don’t settle for ordinary plant pots when it comes to your plants. Adding fun shapes and bold colors to your space will give your space a playful vibe.
With its stunning, bright yellow lemon design on the left, this stylish set-up is sure to turn heads. To the right, a gold vase sports an eye-catching set of roots to complement the magnificent gold vase. You and your guests will be delighted to see designs like these.
Get creative with kokedamas
These Japanese moss balls, which are known as ‘kokedamas’, have taken over the Western world. They are made by wrapping roots in moss, covering with wet compost, and stringing them together.
They make a beautiful and natural-looking treat for the eyes when they are high up. Taking a few moments to soak kokedamas periodically, and then hanging them to dry, is the team’s suggestion for keeping them hydrated. Keep moist with mist-bottles in between; spray regularly.
Complement your wall colour with plants
This serene setting will keep you from getting stressed out at work again. A beautiful background is provided by these blue-green painted panels in this home office space. Adding trailing plants on the shelf at the top, which fit the colour perfectly, makes it even more attractive. In particular, we like their subtle use of shadow, which makes the scene seem more dramatic.
Go for an easy-care hanging display
Your plants will speak for themselves – en masse – with a hanging display rail. Adding the right amount of greenery to an alcove, blank wall, or less-than-delightful view will transform the area immediately.
Various types of plants can be used to customize the finished look to match your space. The mix of compact succulent plants like houseleeks and Echeveria will give the room a more chic, orderly vibe while the peace lily with its glossy leaves, ferns, and trailing ivy will give it a more tropical feel.
Liven up a hallway
By going large, you can add a sense of calm and grandeur to a busy hallway or stairwell. Living wall planters which make a space feel stylish instantly have a big impact on us.
An empty corner can also be unified with a tall, potted plant on the floor. This will both make the area seem more welcoming and unify an awkward space. It’s best to look for plants that have large glossy leaves, such as Swiss cheese plants, dragon plants or corn plants, which will reflect light, provide texture and tone and will visually break up harsh, angular lines such as architraves, stairs and doorways.
Go high with an overhead planter
By growing them in an overhead suspended planter, you allow hanging plants to do what they do best. This bespoke steel beauty features trailing Tradescantia and devil’s ivy. Lit by daylight bulbs installed in the ceiling, it also incorporates a trio of glass pendant lights. The effect is truly magical when they are lit.
Brighten the space with bulbs
How about bringing in some bulbs to bring spring cheer to your home? When arranged in bright, cheerful pots and scattered around the house, they will bring brightness to even the gloomiest of days. Try favorites like Narcissus and Hyacinth. These stunning candles have a beautiful fragrance as well as a stunning appearance.
Try a Bonsai
A lovingly cultivated bonsai may be the ideal, leafy fit for anyone who loves minimal style. With their elaborate shapes and textures, they look stunning displayed in an alcove or as the center of attention on a coffee table, against a simple and well-ordered backdrop. Detailed and intricate, plants such as juniper, yew, and pine are great for beginners since they are slow-growing and can tolerate a wide range of environments.
Design a leafy divider
Need to make an open-concept space cozier or zoned? Consider dividing your room with a collection of large container plants. With their different leaf styles, hues and markings, these tall beauties do more than look great together; they are also an excellent way of letting sunlight gently filter through the rooms. Consider upright, multi-stemmed Ficus species, such as large, glossy java figs, or the classic rubber plant Ficus elastica, and opt for square planters to create a neat and space-saving barrier.
