If you're finding there's a room in your house with something missing, a large potted plant could easily fill that gap. Not only do plants help clear the air, and eliminate toxins, they require very little maintenance and look great. It's a win, win.

Adding greenery into your home doesn't necessarily mean potted plants. Why not grow your own herb garden from your kitchen? Not only are fresh herbs absolutely delicious, but they'll add some vibrancy to your kitchen.

Take a leaf (excuse the pun) out of Justina Blakeney's book and go full 'jungalow'. Decorate your home top-to-bottom with some natural foliage, hanging plants, even go the whole hog, and decorate with some plant-inspired wallpaper or soft furnishings.

One of the easiest ways to turn your house into a home is by introducing some nature. Greenery brings beauty, character and good vibes into your home. There's something therapeutic about caring for plants and flowers, even if you don't have the greenest thumbs. Bring your shelves to life by adding some cute potted plants. If you really don't fancy yourself as the next Diarmuid Gavin, why not invest in some cacti? They require little to no maintenance and are a great addition to any home.
