Tending houseplants and gardening is a form of self-care, a sort of the antidote to our fast and also that turbulent digital life. The greenery like the nature can bring calm, they literally produce oxygen and look beautiful. The use of houseplants within your working area also can help improve creativity and productivity.
How to decorate with plants and not make it look chaotic and messy. For example: allow your plants to take centre stage e.g fireplaces, welcome them to a work space in the corner of a desk. Use greenery in the bathroom, plants that love wet, hot and not too much sunt like Boston Ferns.
Buy a plant, stand or a vase.

Summer season is about to make the most of your garden or patio. From rooftop terraces to grand green spaces, there’s always room for improvement, so if your outdoor space needs a refresh, step away from the ordinary and try some innovative ideas. Whether you’re longing for the perfect party setting, or for somewhere to curl up in the shade with a good book, your patio can provide.
You probably think this bright patio is somewhere in the Mediterranean. Actually it’s in London, but the clever use of white concrete planters, grasses and simple paving creates a sunny, ‘holiday at home’ vibe.
This wooden canopy (roof) provides respite from the midday sun and sudden showers alike. Keeping half the area open means friends and family can enjoy the sun and sky, too.
Make a lush, jungle oasis, evergreen gardens, use natural wood and neutral tones, tropical palms are a handsome addition, either potted or planted into borders. And when the sun’s out, it’s easy to convince yourself you’re somewhere on the island…
Even in summer evenings can be a bit chilly, so you could also add a fire pit in the centre of the seating area for partying into the night. Decorate your garden with home-made candle holders for a low-budget lighting solution.
Furniture that isn’t traditionally used outside can add real charm to a patio. By mixing up the seating options, including sofas, sunloungers and dining chairs with piles of cushions for comfort, garden is ready for anything.
According to Real estate and rental marketplace Zillow there is top new patio trends for this summer, one:
Lime Green Accent Colors . Their experts suggest finding subtle ways to incorporate it into your decor, whether it be in throw pillows, chair cushions, or vases.
According to Zillow “outdoor spaces are becoming an extension of indoor living,” “so people will invest in long-lasting furniture that can weather both the seasons and changing fads.”
A year-round, built-in bench means the space is perfect for a coffee on a sunny morning.
