7 Stylish Ways to Display Houseplants!

We grew up with lots of houseplants from impressive rubber plants and cascading “money” plants to large pots of peace lilies in the drawing room. One of my earliest memories is my mom asking someone for a cutting of one of their plants. (Odd, I know!) And although its been many years since she’s had a plant at home, back then she definitely had a green thumb- I swear she could make plants flourish just by stepping into the room! Somehow, somewhere along the way, I decided I would probably have the blackest thumb in the business and so I never considered bringing home a houseplant. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t emotionally ready to commit?

Meet Penny! This was basket #1 from World Market but it was a tiny bit too short. She sits in a different basket now from Target and is very happy.

Nevertheless, about two months ago and really yearning for a kitten, I decided it was time to bring home a plant instead. (Yes, that logic makes perfect sense in my head.) I chose a gorgeous fiddle leaf fig that just happened to be at Costco right next to the checkout. I call that serendipity! All four of us made a special trip in two cars to pick it up later that day. And now? Not only is it still alive, but, you guys, it is thriving. I’m so proud although all I’ve done is water it once a week (Two cups, exactly.) It sits in a beautiful basket from Target in front of our large living room window and receives plenty of softly filtered sunlight. It’s got a pretty good life, as far as plants go.

I’ll admit I didn’t quite anticipate how delightful it would feel watching Penny (the Boy chose the name!) grow so well, but now that she is, I’ve realized I want to bring a few more plants home. My great dilemma is figuring out how to display them stylishly and make them work with our existing decor. So off to Pinterest I went and here we are: a round up of the best, most stylish ways to display houseplants at home! P.S.: You can also Shop this post at the very end and find some of my favourite planters and baskets!

1. In the Entryway

A single houseplant can elevate an entry way from just OK to amazing! Personally, I would choose a houseplant with clean, simple leaves, like the fiddle leaf, rubber plant, or the monstera, but it really comes down to your personal aesthetic and how the rest of your space looks.

2. Corner Vignettes

On a ladder, hanging from the ceiling, arranged on the floor by height, or hidden in a colour-blocked corner, the possibilities for creating curated vignettes with houseplants are endless!

I love the concrete pots and this sculptural arrangement of houseplants on the floor. The artwork, the basket, everything in this space (a bathroom!) is lovely. Via Airows.

3. Table Top Displays

Although typically flowers hold dominion over table top displays, who says you can’t add potted plants and branches in vases to the top of your table too? Although I’m the first to admit I have flowers on my table top five days out of seven, I think in comparison, plants can look less contrived and more elevated. What do you think?

Remember The Cardigans? I still know every word to Love Fool. This is the home of the lead singer of the Cardigans, Nina Persson. Although it’s based in New York, it’s distinctly Scandinavian personality is so appealing to me, as are those gorgeous vases. Via Kate Young Design.

Tiny plant, big impact. Table top plants don’t have to be huge, especially when they’re surrounded by so much greenery! Via Design Sponge.

4. Benches & Bar Carts

Think beyond the floor and the table. Benches and Bar Carts make great display stands for houseplants too!

5. Up on the Wall

Plants as artwork, anyone? I absolutely love the idea of displaying plants this way!

Looking for workspace inspo? Look no further! Pegboard is such a multipurpose material and the thought of adding living, breathing elements to an inspiration board is so appealing! Via Adoro Home Office.

6. Window Displays

This is another great way of showing off your house plants. I really love the idea of shelves in front of windows, especially if you live in a small apartment. It’s such a smart way of using an existing area that is usually under-utilized, don’t you think?

If you live in a small space and don’t have a lot of room for houseplants on the floor, this is a brilliant idea! Acrylic shelves allow the light through and the terracotta planters add a lovely neutral pop. In this case, they compliment the peach walls really well but I can see this working with any wall colour, really. If you lean towards Scandi style, a grey wall and white planters would also make a great statement. The possibilities are endless! Via A Beautiful Mess.

Here’s a more industrial take on a window-front shelf. If you live, or work, in a loft, a floating shelf hung on chain is an amazing way of adding storage space for houseplants! Via Adoro Home Office.

7. In the Bedroom

Aside from the pretty factor, some plants- like the peace lily, mother-in-law’s tongue, and spider plant, to name a few- are also really good at removing toxins from the air. I can’t think of a better reason than that to pop one of these pretties into your bedroom!
