We usually see a border outside, but have you ever thought of an indoor border? This will bring the real outdoor feeling inside, improve air quality and create an instant feel-good feeling. How about a green border in your home office, next to your kitchen island or as a room divider in the living room?
Whether you keep it small or opt for lush and grand: the choice is yours. For a playful look, choose bunches of (dried) plants of different heights. Coordinate the colours well, and use natural shades for that real Balanced Biotope feeling. Which plants you use is of course entirely up to you. In the example above, we have used plants such as Cambrias, Papyrus, Strelizia and Monstera.
*Tip: for best results, keep companion planting in mind. Match the choice of your plants to their needs (water, light etc.).
Besides an indoor border, there are of course many other ways to create a mini-biotope indoors. How about natural sculptures as an alternative to a potted plant? For example, place large stalks of dried grass in plaster blocks, or get inspired by the lookbook of the current Trend Collection. From mosses to plants and grasses: you can use them all to create natural eye-catchers. Follow your green heart and let your intuition do the talking!
