In recent years, infusing our homes with lush greenery has become a timeless trend in interior design. However, not everyone possesses a green thumb (which is completely fine!), leading to a growing demand for artificial plants.
When you typically envision artificial plants, it's easy to conjure images of odd textures and colours that don't quite align with anything found in the natural environment. We understand that this can be a significant turn-off. The last thing we want for your home is for it to look tacky. Rest assured, our agenda does not include the usage of cheap plastics or frayed silk plants.
So, how can you artfully design a biophilic home with artificial greenery without sacrificing aesthetics?
Let's be candid— aesthetics are pivotal. Who can resist interior designs that are visually captivating? The type that evokes feelings of tranquility, delight, or even whimsy! We've marveled at DIY home design videos consistently. A recurring theme we've noticed in these videos is the profusion of lush greenery adorning every nook of these homes. Bathrooms are transformed into luxurious spaces, kitchens are bedecked with bursts of fresh nature that complement your fruit bowl, and living rooms take on an airy or snug ambiance, contingent on the nature of the biophilic design. This is stunning proof that incorporating greenery into your home is much more attainable than you may imagine.
When it comes to designing a biophilic home with artificial greenery, we recommend handpicking your artificial plants, deliberating on their placements, and defining an overarching aesthetic you'd like to create.
Here are 7 more tips on how to incorporate artificial greenery into your biophilic home design:
An especially wonderful perk of artificial green walls is their incredible durability. These walls are made up of synthetic plants, foliage, and faux moss, which are typically constructed from fabrics or plastics. Many artificial greenscapes are created using UV-resistant materials, which helps prevent fading and damage from exposure to sunlight, ensuring your design stays fresh and vibrant. Furthermore, some artificial green walls are treated with fire-retardant chemicals, adding an extra layer of safety.
Arrange your artificial plants thoughtfully near windows or in well-lit corners, and mix and match different types to create the desired atmosphere. With careful placement, you can design a space that reflects your preferred ambiance and replicates the natural diversity of plants found in their real-life counterparts.
Green walls are fan favourites - and for good reason. Artificial vertical gardens, or green walls, bring a lush and visually striking element to your home.
Mix and match artificial greenery with natural materials like wood, stone, and natural fabrics to create a beautiful and balanced design. For a little sparkle, consider adding crystals!
Pro tip - Regularly dust and clean your artificial plants to maintain their realistic appearance and prevent them from looking artificial!
Room dividers are underrated yet stunning ways to incorporate biophilic design into your home. Use tall artificial plants to create natural room dividers, or consider bamboo or wicker dividers to separate various areas of a room.
Select planters that resemble natural materials such as clay, stone, or wood to enhance the authenticity of artificial greenery.
Wreaths aren't limited to holidays; you can design stunning wreaths for all seasons throughout the year. Enhance the natural touch in your home by incorporating other biophilic design elements like artificial garlands and floral arrangements.
Don't overlook the opportunity to explore and embrace your unique vibe! The world of artificial plants is at your fingertips.
