If you have been following our wonderful decor blog religiously, then you must have noticed a heavy focus on how to manipulate indoor plants and what green DIY projects are good for this season left and right! Here at Decoist, we are crazy about homes that rake in sustainable elements, as well as new ideas that merge sustainable practicality with elegant designs.
While decorating our home to the best of our abilities is a goal for us all, the beautification of our lovely planet is actually what matters the most. By diversifying the selections of home decor, which can involve more organic materials and biodegradable objects, you put yourself on the ultimate green path toward a more responsible, clean future, not just for yourself but for mankind as a whole.
To steer you in the right direction, I’m going suggest indoor topiary plants for a fun, charismatic way to spice up your living spaces.
Topiaries In All Shapes And Sizes
The good thing about indoor topiary plants is that they are extremely easy to look after. Instead of forking over big bucks to the weekly gardener, you can use a fast pair of gardening scissors and snip a few geometric shapes in the backyard or in the kitchen. If you are worried about making a mess, just lay out some old newspaper to catch the fallen leaves and branches!

Now that we have the ball rolling, it’s time to really dive in deep with indoor topiary designs!

One round topiary is good, but two are always better. And if you think two is a good number, then my advice is…the more the merrier! Don’t you the think the beautiful balcony layout above is a great example of what indoor topiaries should look like?

I personally enjoy seeing topiary plants in the living room, mainly because they offer a welcoming sight for all my guests and friends. To be honest, I’m a big fengshui-er, so naturally I take pleasure in making sure the home has a flowing theme. And if you are anything like me, then I would recommend good amounts of indoor topiaries to Zen-out your living space.

Not a big fan of coat hangers and umbrella bins near the front door? If you fall into the group of designers who turn a cold shoulder to such ideas, then how about a pair of topiary plants like the ones above to remedy your designer’s block?

While outdoor topiaries are generally several feet tall and immeasurably wide, indoor pots do not need to be as massive and grand. Petite pots like the ones on the dining room table above work just fine for homes, both large or small!
