Interior Design is both a science and an art. You have to know the proper use of lighting, shapes, and color for a particular space, and you have to have a flair for bringing it all together and making it look inviting to the client.
But there’s also a bit of psychology involved as well. Sometimes the client is challenged to express exactly what they want or specify what’s missing from a design. They want a design to be tweaked in certain ways to make it feel more comfortable or adjust a décor slightly, but they aren’t exactly sure how they want it done. The best interior designers find ways to translate those vague desires into tangible plans and bring them to life.
Many times, they can be brought to life with actual living things. Plants can be an interior designer’s best friend, and Plantz is the ideal plant service partner for interior design projects.
Plants at the Forefront
Some clients respond to our inherent desire to connect with other living things. It stimulates their creativity, provides a welcoming environment for relaxation, and their senses benefit from cleaner air. For those projects, a strong plant presence can transform a space to match their desires. From table adornments to larger floor plants, a vibrant collection of species can offer a lush environment without clashing with the overall theme. These additions can enhance a lobby, living area, entertainment space, or workspace, and can even be used to separate them in a creative and natural way.
And sometimes, just a couple of the right plants can become the centerpiece of your décor. A well-placed Adonidia Palm (also known as the Christmas Palm) or Foxtail Palm can add instant warmth and color to a room without any other changes. And, when necessary, they can be moved and returned easily. Plants are versatile additions to your design toolbox.
Plants in the Background
Sometimes a décor is on the right track, but the client feels something is missing they can’t quite express. In those cases, a few subtle plant additions can add the right touch and bring everything together.
A plant can fill an empty corner or space that feels cold and formal, provide a touch of contrast to a monitor or other technology, or enhance a minimalist style. The right plants can be used to create the illusion of height or depth, and draw attention toward (or away from) parts of a room. Plants don’t have to be the centerpiece of an area to have a positive impact on it.
And if you want to get really creative, consider vertical presentations and moss walls. There are few things more eye-catching than unexpected live, lush green adorning the walls of a home or business. They save space, serve as art, and add an unusual touch of nature to an area. And if a client is looking for a vibrant and creative extra piece to really make a space stand out, this type of outside-the-box thinking can be the perfect finishing touch to your designs.
