If you spend any time on Instagram, you must have noticed that suddenly, your feed is full of green leaves and flowers. The same is true for interior design magazines and cute, Goop-style stores. Everyone is buying plants. So what’s behind this trend? And how can you adapt it for your home?
The fashion for succulents and potted plants started with Millennial trend-setters. So many people have tried to link the trend to that age group. Millennials often live in city flats, without much space for pets or gardens. So small, manageable indoor plants are a great solution.
But there’s more to it than that. In interior design, we’re seeing a wider trend for natural materials and outdoor styles. Plants are an easy way to bring nature into your home. They also bring health benefits, as they produce oxygen and reduce stress levels.
So what does this mean for your design plans? Here are some easy ways to join the potted plant craze.
