With over 150 houseplants in my home, I have to be strategic with where I place my plants.

I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram and I wanted to share my favorite design photos so you all can get inspiration as well. Plants can turn a boring space into a green oasis and elevate a room.

Here are some of my favorite indoor houseplant styling ideas.

Take advantage of terracotta pots and neutral pot colors.

The color green really pops in terracotta and it’s my favorite type of pot to put houseplants in. Terracotta also helps suck out excess moisture so if you tend to overwater, terracotta is the way to go.

Place plants in places like bookshelves. Plants can really make these areas pop and bring it to life.

Create bouquets with houseplants.

This is such a fun way to gift houseplants and I’m seeing this really become a thing lately. You can see in the photo below there is a bouquet of flowers with scindapsus cuttings throw in.

Bathrooms are one of the best places for houseplants because of the consistent boost of humidity each day.

Before you place any plants in your bathroom, make sure there is enough sunlight.

South, east, and west facing bathrooms get a good amount of sunlight each day, whereas north facing (early morning sun) gets almost no sunlight.

Place plants in fishbowls.

I use fishbowls for succulents and cactus and find it’s a creative way to pot plants. I put a layer of sand and rock at the bottom for drainage.

Variegated plants can really make a table shine. I love this rare pop of color.

Plants are perfect even when they are imperfect. Don’t throw out plants that have some damage on them. Even in the wild plants aren’t perfect.

If you don’t want a ton of houseplants in your home, buy one massive plant to make a statement.

Visit thrift stores and find unique containers to put your houseplants in. You can drill a hole at the bottom of almost anything to create drainage.

I don’t drill holes in containers that don’t have holes in them already but that’s because I have had plants long enough to know when they’ve had enough water.

You don’t need hundreds of plants to make a statement.

This one plant really adds some color and dimension to this space.

This person loves ficus and you can tell from the picture below.

Ficus plants get quite tall in the home and make great plants for people who don’t have a ton of horizontal space.

Max out space by adding as many of your favorite plants as you can in a corner.
