1. Liven up neutral spaces. Tropical colors can brighten up light and airy minimalist spaces. Plant a bowl of happiness with a colorful bromeliad flanked by two grafted cactus plants to make a dish garden.

Add shiny decorative gems for a fun touch. For other pops of color, consider lanterns and vases to tie it all together.

Use a bit of artful decor with vases and a chic small flowerpot to complete the look. While you’re at it, check out these easy growing no-fail houseplants.

4. Transform overlooked areas. Give an otherwise drab space some color when you add a houseplant. Then add whimsical accents, such as a modern clock and sideways print.

Don’t forget, indoor plants such as sansevieria (pictured above) and pothos bring lots of fringe benefits because they provide oxygen and purify the air. Check out the best places in your home for houseplants.

5. Carve out a nook. Hang a bit of sunshine with a terrarium filled with brightly colored plants, sea glass and decorative pebbles. Terrariums take less than an hour to put together and do so much to beautify small spaces. 



6. Create a stylish perch. On a rustic shelf or decorative box, make a place where your plants gather. Cluster them in a place where you might cozy up to read a book. 

To keep your greenery looking fresh, repot your houseplants if they look tired and saggy or just need a bigger home. When you refresh the potting soil, your indoor plants also benefit.
