Decorating With House Plants
Seven ideas for gorgeous displays and the secrets for keeping your indoor greenery growing strong. By Danielle Claro
Green the Bedroom With Ferns
Trading a bedside lamp for a rich, leafy fern offers a surprise hit of nature that’s especially striking in a neutral space—it
can turn an understated room into a minimalist enchanted forest. Ordinary ferns look regal when tucked in pretty matte pots
and groomed a bit; just trim stray fronds and remove anything brown. Similar but different, these varieties (left, a Green
Fantasy fern; right, a button fern) relate artfully from their perches. When shopping for ferns, look up. Anything in a hanging
pot can be relocated to a standing pot, and often the lushest specimens are above you.
Care: Indirect light. Water whenever the surface of the soil is dry to the touch.
