PLANTS are not only gor­geous to look at, they also pu­rify the air and cre­ate a calm at­mos­phere while bring­ing in­te­ri­ors to life. And there are many in­teres­ting plant hol­ders to choose from.

Sleek, min­i­mal­ist de­signs in neu­tral, matte shades of white, grey and black are trendy, and faceted de­signs and geo­met­ric shapes are on point too.

Mix and match mod­ern with rus­tic, nat­u­ral el­e­ments like bas­kets, ce­ment planters or glass.

If you lack floor space a plant stand is ideal, and hang­ing plants make a state­ment too.

Don’t have green fin­gers? Suc­cu­lents and ter­rar­i­ums are your best choice.

Ar­range your plants in groups with vary­ing heights to cre­ate depth and let your green­ery add nat­u­ral colour to your home.
