Decorating with houseplants, ​minimalist style.

I didn’t even have a houseplant a few years ago.  Then after watching some You -tubers on minimalism and their flats or apartments decorated with greenery, I was sold.  I added a few here and there and now, well, they’re all over and I love the varying shades of green.  I also saw that a lot of these same people used white or muted pots because the pot blends in with the surroundings and the plants stand out. Wow, this is so cool and totally true.

But finding whitish pots is actually not easy.  Home Depot doesn’t have one except for this white bamboo one, which is the one I’ve bought the most of.

This spider plant was quite root bound and loves its new pot( it told me so)! I’ll have to see if it likes this spot.

This Boston fern likes where it is.

I moved this spider plant a while ago as it wasn’t happy where it was and now it is VERY happy!!

This is in my office area too near the french doors that go out to the sun room. Sounds fancy, but really it hippy built and loved and a little wonky, but I love French doors( we got these free years and years ago when the newspapers( laugh at that one) listed for free items. This is pre-Craigs list!!!

I am loving having house plants again after years of not and I think they really add to the color in a room plus personality.

When there’s no knick-knacks or other clutter ,plants act as decor for the minimalist. I do have some things around such as 3 vintage clocks that I love, and I have one Roseville piece that is the Zephyr Lily which I’d love to collect as Zephyr is my son’s name. But you don’t see Roseville Pottery around thrift stores much so…
