How Houseplants Can Enhance Your Decor

I have always loved plants in my home.

The feeling of bringing the outside in, is not only just pleasing to the eye,

but very healthy too,  as they actually can clean the air!

When others need pet sitters when they travel,

I need plant sitters! I have many!

When watering plants the other week before leaving on a trip,

I realized how houseplants can enhance your decor. It truly does mine.

I love the color and texture that they add.

Let’s start in the foyer.

Master Bedroom Sitting Area Refresh

While at the grocery store the other day,

I always make sure I visit the floral department to see what goodies they had for me.

The roses were on clearance. So a beautiful bunch of creamy white roses landed in my cart.

well at least in my house as you know how I love to re-purpose things.

I thought I would put together this short post to show you how I use my plant stands.

We Should Call It The Ivy House

It’s no secret, I love English Ivy.

I have always admired the beautiful cottages in the English countryside

that have many ivy covered walls.

So if I cannot have that ivy covered wall, I am settling for English Ivy in the house.

My hubby looked around the other day, and stated,

“with all the ivy plants you have around the house, we should call it The Ivy House” . . . funny guy!
