What’s Your Plant Personality?

0 comments

Interior plants are kind of having a moment right now, don’t you think? With all of the new, online potted houseplant delivery services now available (The Sill, Leon and George), and with faux-greenery getting increasingly realistic and design-savvy, it seems like every interiors insta-post out there has a plant baby (or ten) on display.

It’s no secret that I am an all-inclusive, no holds barred, unapologetic, crazy plant lady. My house is full of greens, living and faux, big and small, potted, cut, and planted. And, while I love all things green, that doesn’t mean that every plant works in every space. I’m not talking about from a practical perspective, as in, will the plant get enough light in this corner. I’m talking about from a design perspective.

How To Style a Plant

It is important to match plants to the interior design style they are being housed in, in order to present a unified, cohesive design aesthetic. Just like you wouldn’t put a shaggy faux fur, boho throw pillow in a tailored, masculine, wood-paneled den, neither should you pair a stark, mid-century modern cactus with a traditional, feminine nursery.

What I’m saying is, all plants can not be all things to all people and design styles. It is important to pick and choose plants within a similar “plant palette, ” that work together to communicate the design story you are trying to tell.

I’ve grouped together three different “Plant Pairings” below, without labeling them. See which one you are most drawn to, and then scroll down to see what your aesthetic preference says about your Plant Design Personality.

If you chose:

PLANT PAIRING ONE: Modern

If you chose this pairing, you lean a little Scandinavian, a little urban, a little mid-century, but all modern. Modern plants tend to be more contained, manicured, and upright versus flowing and overgrown. Snake plants, palms, cactuses, and succulents are often seen in more modern interiors because of their structured, no-frills aesthetic. Planters with clean lines and simple designs are favored.

PLANT PAIRING TWO: Traditional

This was a pairing for the traditionalist, with cottage, Cape, farmhouse, and Arts and Crafts influences. Trellises, ceiling-height trees, herbs, and cut flowers or branches fit well in this space. Traditional plants are more free-form than their modern counterparts, but not overgrown or quirky. Lavender, rosemary, ivy and other climbing vines, and anything with an East-coast, coniferous vibe would be happy hanging in this time-honored, traditional company.

PLANT PAIRING THREE: Eclectic

This pairing is part bohemian, part adventurer, with tribal-vibes and nomadic leanings. All are welcome here, in a space that combines traditional with modern and anything else that catches the creative eye. For the intentionally “messy” or “shabby” aesthetic favored by the eclectic set, you’ll see unusual pairings of plants with lots of soft, flowing layers and different foliage textures. This is mix and match planting at it’s best, and even though anything goes, it kind of has to do so intentionally, to make sure your home doesn’t end up looking like a plant hoarder’s paradise. So, even though you want it to look like the whole room came together effortlessly, this look actually has to be carefully curated to work properly. Pathos, ferns, Philodendron, and fig trees all feel right at home in the eclectic space.
