how to create a personalised cosy green corner

Want to create your own collection full of plants, souvenirs, natural treasures and precious memories? This is how!

  1. Start with greenery. Choose houseplants that create the atmosphere you want. Place these plants next to, in front of and on top of the furniture. Alternate large and small plants for the best effect and use house trees for extra greenery! In our example, we used Asparagus Fern, Alocasia zebrina (elephant ear), Fern Adiantum and Dieffenbachia
  2. Add treasured mementos you collected during holidays or special occasions, be it a shell from an exotic beach, a figurine from your local market or an object you found by chance.
  3. Collect objects from nature. Go outside and collect all of the beauty nature has to offer. From pine cones to prettystones and the most beautiful leaves, respectfully (and legally!) take the natural treasures that make you feel good. You can change these treasures seasonally, of course!
  4. Add photos of loved ones. Family celebration? New baby? Birthday? Special occasion? A deceased loved one? Pick your most precious photos, give them a matching frame and let them shine on your piece of furniture.
  5. Gradually add more and more plants, souvenirs, natural finds and photos. Let your collection grow, just like the plants on it, next to it and in front of it! It's an organic project full of love and care.

Such a personal cosy green corner is not only beautiful to look at, it challenges you to be creative and be more mindful of your surroundings and nature. And that's not all, because plants in the home have many benefits! Plants have a proven calming effect and promote your mental and physical health. Moreover, they are natural air purifiers and dampen noise. So what are you waiting for? Get started!
