This display will add life and positive energy to any space and can spruce up your feng shui decor in an instant.

If you have any areas of your home that are unfilled, then adding different layers of plants can turn it into a playful and imaginative plant sanctuary. Layering plants at different heights give the effect of intricate little sculptures, and make a captivating collection. Mix round, shiny, and pointy, uniting them with beautiful coloured pots.
3. Live Art

If you have empty space on your walls which you would like to fill, why not create a bespoke plant installation by mounting your planters straight onto the wall. A unique and eclectic wall planter, in keeping with the room’s design, is sure to make an artistic impression.
4. Think Outside the Box

What a wonderful concept! Artisanal or upcycled pots with different shapes and colours accentuate the beauty of the plants. Use old books, cans or crockery that are large and deep enough to house your plant. Not only is this making good use out of items you do not use anymore but it also adds a touch of originality to the aesthetic in the area.
5. Window Display Plants

Adorn your window sills with an array of potted plants, whether in the bathroom, kitchen or living space. Invest in beautifully handcrafted pots and create a delightful display directly on an open window sill, where your plants can then blossom in the sunshine.
