We don’t have to say goodbye to greenery just because the season says so. Keeping potted plants indoors adds life to any space. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, there are many options for indoor plants that are affordable and easy to care for.
The kitchen is one of the best places to keep plants due to generally easy access to water and/or sunlight. Although you may not be interested in a grown tree like the one propped on this kitchen’s island, smaller pots by the window can double as decoration and cooking aids. Check out this kit from William-Sonoma featuring a full family of herbs.
This is a fiddle leaf Fig tree (Ficus lyrata) featured on manhattan-nest.com. I really like the look of it and will probably purchase my own someday. If considering taking one home, just keep in mind it can grow to six feet with proper care. Click here for more information.
Here is a cute little plant atop a Parsons desk from West Elm featured on The Everygirl. This is Guinea Chestnut or Pachira Aquatica and can be purchased for only $10 at IKEA. I’ve had mine in my bedroom for about a year now and it is very easy to care for. It stays relatively small too.
I really like this yellow planter from The Home Depot. For only $7 it’s an easy way to add color to any space. And glad I found these very cool chalk planters from West Elm ranging from $6-$18. Both great looks for the right price.
