Indoor Gardening: Succulents and Herbs

The orange and orange palette of autumn flowers does not match every interior’s style. Pots of herbs or succulents are great options to classic autumn floral arrangements. They’re low maintenance, smart looking, and also a wonderful way to bring the outdoors inside. There is even a practical aspect in the case of the herbs, which are helpful for cooking. And succulents barely ever require water.

These plants work well in kitchens, family rooms, vestibules, and outside eating areas, and add a subtle elegance to any room.

Shape a thyme plant to some contemporary topiary form. Paired with all the pine box holder, the look feels rustic. And this type of tall plant makes a fun design element.

Green herbs on the counter soften the bold look of the bright orange island and cabinets in this slick modern kitchen, which makes the room feel more homey.


Herbs growing in the windows incorporate life in an otherwise quite white space.

Rosemary is so easy to grow and can be so aromatic. Just be sure that it gets some sun while you’ve got it indoors. Wrapped in burlap tied with twine, it appears like it’s in the kitchen of a Paris apartment.

Discuss elegant: the sole greenery to be observed in this chic living room is a closely trimmed thyme topiary tree before the window. The potted herb brings something fresh and living to the room without taking away from the inherent masculinity of the furnishings. And the green of this plant matches the green of this blanket, a pleasant, harmonious choice.

Function trumps form , with pots of herbs stashed alongside bottles of wine while an Italian feast is merely waiting to be cooked up. An individual can attain a similar look by simply taking cut bunches of the herbs, putting them in plain water, and using them for a couple of days.

Modern take on the herb garden: This watering basin for developing herbs permits you to begin with seeds and experience the satisfaction of appearing green.


Herb Window Box – $59.95

GIve a window like this as much sun as possible through autumn and winter. I adore the idea of putting it an unexpected, slightly more formal environ from time to time. For instance, try this in your dining room in exchange for a normal arrangement.

Orchids bloom during quite a while, and this one gets additional interest from succulents planted at its foundation. This entire tablescape feels arty, and the floral/succulent addition includes a sculptural aesthetic.

This is actually revolutionary: succulent plants growing in dish-like baskets positioned softly on the floor. The minimalistic bed and overall vibe of this room is enhanced by these plants. The key to get the look right is locating plants and containers large enough to appear dull.

The tree branch foundation on the coffee table has so much going on that it appears the sole floral choice that would be easy on the eye would be a succulent plant, like a blue-gray agave at a neutral, stone-color container.

There is so much color here that seasonal blossoms would most likely compete or struggle with the scheme. A grouping of succulents, however, is a living, natural accessory which matches the vivid choices.

Succulent Baking Tray – $158

Instead of the usual set of sunflowers and mums, consider decorating with little pots of succulents which will last through the winter. These cry to get a kitchen window, but also would be a accent to your own coffee table from time to time.


Basket of Succulents – $35

These succulents are referred to as cows and fish, and therefore will send offshoots over the side of the basket. These plants are great deals that add a bit of Southwestern charm to any space.
