The Latest Trend in Interior Design – Plants

Forget flying south this fall when you’ve got a home like this

It’s a crazy world we live in.  But there is a place where we each can find the solace and sanctum necessary in our daily lives; and that is the home.  However, the home is only as comforting and rejuvenating as we design it.  We all crave comfort in simple things like Netflix and a good wine, but what’s more comforting than finding yourself surrounded by lush green nature?  Bringing the outdoors in has rapidly become the latest trend in interior design and it shows no sign of slowing down.

Reflecting this desire to be surrounded by nature is the highly acclaimed Pantone Color of the Year which this year – happens to be Green.  “Greenery is meant to represent refreshment and revitalization – something we all could use in a complex social and political environment”, according to Pantone.[1][2]

But for those who aren’t ready to repaint their living room walls green just yet, the simplest, most effective and organic way to achieve a vibrant, refreshing and greener home is to simply incorporate living plants into it.

The trend of incorporating plants into homes and offices has taken the design world by storm and consumed everything from Pinterest to Elle Décor.  Notable people incorporating plants into their interior and architectural designs range from talk show phenom Ellen Degeneres and her green paradise studio set to the world-renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & Meuron who are currently constructing the Beruit tower designed entirely around its exotic planted terraces.

One company that is supporting this trend is Soltech Solutions with their latest product the Aspect which serves to bring the outdoors inside in one of the most unique and tasteful ways yet.  The Aspect is the first grow light for interior design which allows you to beautifully grow any plants indoors while tastefully blending them with your décor.  Now you can replace all of those awkward and empty spaces with anything from fresh lavender to a vibrant avocado tree.

With everyone’s growing desire to feel more connected to nature, this fall anticipates some of the greenest interiors we’ve seen since the Romans- and we like it.
