Indoor plants and succulents: the latest Millennial interior design trend

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?

Green means go

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.

How to choose plants for your bathroom

So what does this mean for your design plans? Here are some easy ways to join the potted plant craze.

  • Start small. If you’re not a keen gardener, then start with plants which are easy to maintain. Choose small succulents or desert plants, which will thrive in almost any conditions.
  • Pick your style. Do you want a single, elegant orchid? Or do you picture a leafy green rainforest, wreathed around your bathtub? Check Instagram or Pinterest for inspiration, then talk to your florist or local garden center for tips.
  • Don’t over-water. Your bathroom is already a relatively wet environment, so succulents won’t need to be watered very often – if at all. So that’s even less maintenance to worry about!
  • It doesn’t have to be plants. If you like this style, but the thought of raising a plant horrifies you, there are other ways to try it out. Emerald green furniture, accents and accessories are a major trend for 2019.
