Leaves, leaves, glorious leaves!
At BedNest we’re loving the continued trend towards greening up our interiors. From luminescent lime to calming pastel greens, indoor plants are making our homes feel oh so comfortable and liveable.
Perhaps our love for indoor botanicals is born out of nostalgia for a time when life was simpler, less hurried and hectic; when summer days lingered long and warm evenings seemed to last forever.

Whatever the reason, greens strike a chord and make our hearts sing; inviting us to ‘press pause’ and breathe deeply.
Bring on the Life Force
Besides being good for us, live plants find us humming, smiling, singing… even whistling. Plants invigorate our window sills, benches, bedside tables, dining tables and make amazing statements of vibrancy on rugs and floors.
They are alive: breathing beauty into our days. Plants!

Green Wash the Bedroom
The bedroom is no longer off limits for plants. Be bold, break out the pots, the posies, the palms. Big, bold, glorious and green.
Simply add palm fronds and water…Image via Pinterest.

The bedroom, like every other room, will sing a little brighter, when live plants are added.
Botanicals can bring a sense of calm….and when your little ones are old enough, give them something to care for, watch over, water and…. witness growing.

Nature as Palette
As if by magic, plants have the ability to find their way perfectly into any décor.
Whether they tone or contrast, layers of beautiful green ‘work’ with any existing décor and design elements, adding layers of colour and shape to what exists.

Colours, textures, shapes… alive.
Nature as Inspiration
We love how Design Seeds uses nature to inspire their divine colour palettes. Breath. Taking.
“Design Seeds celebrate colours found in nature and the aesthetic of purposeful living.” And so do we!
Look at these beautiful palettes from their website…
A Life of Their Own
Plants have a life of their own: living shapes, colours and textures; growth patterns built in their DNA. They are living design pieces, changing, growing up with us, taking shape over time.

With nurture, plants can become a much loved elements in the living landscape of our rooms, welcoming us home.
