Pot plants don’t have to languish in tired plastic containers! Using a selection of indoor plants and a variety of pots can create a strong contemporary look, as shown above. Combining the plants with a bare wooden floor or exposed brick contributes to a fresh outdoor look.

Driftwood can be used as an accent for so many different types of furniture. This headboard makes a great statement against the plain white wall, and teamed with the faux fur and simple bedding it is a sophisticated bedroom look. A beautiful indoor-friendly plant can inject some color into a clean crisp interior without making it look busy.
