Millennials have killed houseplants and replaced them with succulents. Why? Because succulents are easy and give you an instant payoff. That’s what we love in today’s fast-paced world. We want things to look pretty, be easy, and not require much from us: enter succulents.
They are the hot topic in gardens these days and are taking over our Insta and Pinterest feeds day after day with tiny, cute, colorful, and bubbly plants that make us all smile. Ready to hop on the bandwagon? Me too. Here are a few of my favorite succulent décor ideas.
The kitchen table is a great place to start. Create a succulent centerpiece by finding a beautiful planter. Glass bowls are popular, but they aren’t the only option. Go for a beautiful wooden tray, a bright planter, or a colorful ceramic bowl. You can also mix your succulents with beautiful stones, candles, or other homey accents to make them the perfect kitchen centerpiece.
Sunny Windowsill Addition
Naturally, succulents love the sun, so put them where they will be the happiest – right on the windowsill. You can give them each their own individual pot or create a planter that fits perfectly on the sill. A trendy window alternative is to hang glass bulbs instead of curtains. It gives a pop of color, a beautiful accent, and doesn’t compromise any natural light in your home.
Succulents make a great wall hanging too. Swap out boring artwork or old family photos for a fresh and organic way to fill your walls. Succulent planters are easy to maintain and don’t need a lot of drainages because they don’t get watered very often. You can hang them from the ceiling, mount them to the wall, and coordinate the colors with any existing home décor.
Need a little something extra on that shelf in the living room? Succulents to the rescue! They are a great way to add greenery to your bookshelf or entertainment center. Find creative containers like cake stands, tiny bowls, or even an old French press. It’s guaranteed to be a conversation starter.
Looking to add a little something to the bedroom? Succulents are a great way to add a little greenery to the bedroom. They don’t need a ton of sunlight, so they do OK in a bedroom, and they give a little accent of a spa oasis in your own personal space.
