STYLING TIPS

In our modern lives, the kitchen serves more than a space for cooking. As we bond with our families and friends, the heart of our home makes for an important moment. Our lives revolve around this central point as a gathering space so why not turn a traditionally utilitarian room into a verdant statement.

PLANTS TO USE IN YOUR KITCHEN

  • Mistletoe cactus (Rhipsalis) – Perfect for softening shelf edges.
  • Macho fern (Nephrolepis biserrata) – This tender touch can add impact instantly.
  • Begonia – With an array of interesting foliage Begonia’s add intricacy to any benchtop.

STYLING TIP

  • Earthy planter colours can anchor your plants and align them to your interior palette.
  • To prevent your space from feeling chaotic, weave in some neutrally toned planters to simply add texture and support your hero pieces.
  • Give your plants some breathing space. A healthy void between plants can give your clusters hierarchy.
