Interior design is always evolving, and as a result, many of the focal points that we have come to know and love must also evolve. In this case, we’re talking about the modern planter, a fixture in just about any modern office space, living room or social environment. No matter where your next interior design project takes you, here are a few stylish ways to work modern planters into your plan and make the most of living greenery indoors.
Creating a Tropical Paradise
Turning a drab room into a tropical paradise is the perfect solution if you want space to relax and destress without having to travel. Paint the walls in bright blues and invite some fresh air into your space, but make sure you make the dream a reality by also including tropical plants. Sure, tropical plants may not do well outside in your location, but with the help of a modern planter, you can keep healthy palms, ferns, and other tropical plants healthy indoors with a little bit of planning. These plants will fill the room with the familiar earthy scent that comes along with a tropical vacation, as well as offering cleaner air to breathe and a quiet space to contemplate nature inside your space.
The Farmhouse Look
For many offices, schools and even apartments, the idea of a sprawling outdoor garden is out of the question. Fortunately, with modern planters, you can plant a garden of just about any size indoors! For instance, large basin-style planters are perfect for planting dwarf trees with an assortment of low growing flowers around the base. You can also use tabletop planters of various sizes to build a privacy screen. Plus, tall and narrow planters are great dividers for rooms that help maximize your walking space without making the room feel stuffy. When you choose classic colors and designs, you can really build a look that would benefit a modern farmhouse with ease.
For a low-maintenance but colorful punch in your indoor space, consider planters for succulents. Succulents come in many more varieties than we ever imagined, and many of them are quite colorful not to mention their unique shapes and flowers. You don’t have to go overboard with enormous plants to make a bold splash with modern planters. Instead, choose a modern planter with an interesting profile, fill it with loose sandy soil to fit the needs of your succulents, and then plant away. Succulents look great in a room that’s been designed with desert colors and decor.
Even if your interior design does not fall into one of these common themes, you can still use modern planters to tie together the colors you love. Modern fiberglass planters come in a huge range of colors and finishes so they can be matched to your needs. In addition, you can order them in a variety of sizes so that you have a good mix of floor planters as well as tabletop planters throughout the space. This will create a unified appearance that grabs the eye, especially when your planters are bursting with color from the inside.
No matter what kind of interior design you hope to achieve, modern planters can play an important role in adding eye-catching color and detail to any room. Modern planters are available in many sizes and colors so you can match each planter to its intended home, and personalize it with the plants you choose to put inside. They can be as complex or as simple as they need to be to get the effect you’re after. To learn more, check out all of our indoor planters at Jay Scotts today.
