Given that we’ve all been spending more time than ever in our homes over the past two years, we’ve really started to realise how important it is to fill your house or flat with things that make you happy. No one wants to be stuck looking at things they hate all day. In the words of Marie Kondo, your home — and the things in it — should spark joy.
Enter: houseplants. Even the smallest, most humble little green plant has the ability to magically turn your otherwise boring interiors into something worthy of a Pinterest board. The benefits of plants indoors are endless: they add a pop of colour, they make a room feel more cosy and they can evenimprove the air quality of your home — important if you live in a city. Did you know that they can remove up to 87% of air toxins in 24 hours?
And the best part is, once you’ve decided which houseplants to buy, you can then pick the prettiest plant pots to put them in. From over-the-top to minimal, spenny to purse-friendly, we’ve rounded up our favourite indoorplant pots to brighten up your home.
