It's Easy Being Green

Want an easy and inexpensive decorative item? Pick a plant.

I love including plants in a room's plan. They're an integral part of a room's design because they add an organic element you can’t get from furnishings and fabric.

Here's how to add a little greenery to your design:

The plant needs to create a shape and add color to the room the same way a fabric, paint color, or a piece of furniture would. So maybe skip the ferns and go for something a little more…interesting.

I always suggest a plant with a defined shape for the leaf, such as a fig tree or white bird of paradise.
