4 Essential Indoor Plants
You guys might remember a few weeks ago, I mentioned I was in the process of landscaping my backyard. While I was working with my contractor on the details, I fell in love with a few other flowers that I’ve been using to liven up my home space as well as my backyard. Plants are such amazing unassuming things that can do wonders for your house. It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of white roses, but today I’ll be sharing with you guys 4 other amazing indoor plants to have around the house!
1. Pink Chrysanthemums
Since I love having just white everything, (I mean.. check out Chloe’s nursery), having a fun pop of color can really bring out the neutral space even more. And the great thing about having a fun colored plant is that it instantly livens up the space. Especially living in a metropolis city can be overwhelming at times .. so for my fun loving readers, try adding this to your space! It also makes for fun pictures.
This was definitely a hard plant to take care of, not going to lie. They’re so pretty and delicate, but this is a bit more high-maintenance plant. (Can you handle it?) They demand high, unobstructed light; they prefer their water soft; not too wet, not too dry. But the petals are so delicate and pretty, it can make your space feel more romantic and dreamy.
3. Peace Lily
Their lush foliage and pure white blossoms make Peace Lilies a popular houseplant. These easy-care plants thrive best under indirect sunlight and attentive watering. The best part? These lilies tell you when they’re in need of water by drooping. This easy plant is perfect for the foyer or in the living room!
This plant isn’t something I’d have on my desk at the office (I prefer something more delicate), but I love the greens and how strong it feels. But this might be the perfect plant for me because the thick leaves can hold water well and I always tend to forget to water my plants!
And there you have it, 4 indoor plants! Are you guys a plant person? Which one will you be purchasing for your home?

How to Make Your Bathroom Look Expensive
It might be the most important room in your house, so why not make it look good?
We bought a Japanese Peace Lily purely because it was in the film Hot Fuzz. Turned to be a really great buy – cheap, sturdy plant and soothing to have around!
I love plants, they can really brighten up your space! But oh god, I am so bad at taking care of them! Oddly enough my boyfriend, sick of seeing plants die at home gifted me a cactus last VALENTINE’S!:( No need to mention that the Cactus also died a couple weeks ago!!
I have become a plant person in the last few years. I’ve been building a little cactus collection but I have been thinking of getting something larger lately and your post came at the right time. Might get myself a Bromeliad as I too am a bit forgetful haha !
first I want to say congratulations with Chloé. She is just adoring! Here is a little tip to you and everyone els. The Orchid is a plant, as you say, that needs a lot of light. Therefore it is very good to plant it in a clear flowerpot bowl. Then it can get enough light. The Orchid dose not like a lot of water so only give it water when it looks like it need it. You can, with advantage, have it in your bathroom if there is light. In the bathroom there will be damp after showers and the Orchid can get water from the damp. 🙂 Good luck with the plants and Chloé <3
Great post, I also love to have different plants and flowers at home! Thanks for sharing!
The orchids and the lilies are my favourite 🙂
THIS HAS INSPIRED ME TO ADD A FEW COLOURFUL PLANTS TO MY HOME. I ALREADY HAVE THE PEACE LILY – THEY’RE SO EASY TO LOOK AFTER. SPRING BULBS ARE NICE AT THIS TIME OF YEAR,TOO. THEY DON’T LAST LONG BUT THEY GIVE ME A BOOST AT THE TAIL END OF WINTER. LOVE THE STUNNING PHOTOS. X
The image in the post are stunning. Never thought houseplants could look so interesting lls
Love the plants you chose! I try so hard to be a plant person but my apartment is where plants go to die, unfortunately. I don’t think I get enough sunlight in my apartment.
Love orchids, beautiful picks!
My grandmother always kept a gorgeous orchid in her home. I was always amazed at how long it had been living and how very low maintenance it was.. until a few months ago when we were moving her into a retirement community when we found that the orchid was fake.
Wait, orchids are high maintenance? My mom has always kept pots of orchids for as long as I’ve could remember, and they’re really low maintenance plants. Just need place them in non-direct sunlight and water once every 2 weeks when the bedding is dry with just enough (plain tap) water so it doesn’t run out from the bottom of holes in the pot. So easy and they can live for years!
I love plants in the house!
Those are all gorgeous! One of my favorite things about indoor plants, aside from the added touch of beauty, is that they do a lot to clean and freshen the air.

Orchids are my favourite!
