This winter, invest in some greenery to revamp your space

You’ve heard it before – a change is as good as a holiday. Introducing some foliage is a sure-fire way to drastically update the look and feel of any room in your home, and we’re here to show you how. Get ready to create lively spaces you’ll be happy to bunker down in as the cooler months roll in.

The plant

From fiddleleafs to cacti, there’s nothing that brings a room alive quite like a humble houseplant. For the committed green thumbs among us, head to ehe Plenty Valley Florist, and shop up a storm. Otherwise, it’s time to fake it till you make it at Kmart, where you’ll find a range of decorative greenery that requires zero tending to.

The pot

Now it’s time to visit Kmart for an eye-catching pot, which will add a serious lift to your space. Don’t underestimate the power of a pop of metallic on this front, either – pots featuring gold, silver or copper accents pack a real punch.

Pro tip: simply placing a few monstera or eucalyptus branches in a stunning vase or pot will add a splash of vibrancy to your environment, and the bonus is that you can change these out fairly regularly to keep things fresh. Wondering about your plant versus pot proportions? A good rule is to aim to have the visible greenery two thirds taller than the size of the pot itself.

The stand

Bed Bath N Table, Manchester Collection or Ishka will sort you out with the final touch: a stand. Whether you go neutral and minimal or something more extra, elevating your plant off the floor will draw the eye upwards and open up your space. For the DIY fans out there, another fun option is to buy a hanging planter, which can inject new life into kitchen and bathroom corners in particular.

And with that, you’re done! Once you step back and admire your handiwork, you’ll be amazed by what the introduction of one new element can achieve.

Head to Westfield Plenty Valley now to get cracking on your own creation.
