Plants: Interior Design Inspiration

I don’t have a green thumb. Can I call it a yellow thumb? It’s quite possibly a brown thumb. I killed a succulent in less than two weeks. But I decided I wanted to use plants to add style to my bathroom.


I started by growing an avocado tree from the pit. After two months, nothing happened and I had to throw the pit away. I tried again about a week later and I’m still waiting to see what happens with that pit. In the meantime I figured, why not just buy a plant.  I had seen so many pictures on Instagram and other sites of how people use plants in their Interior Design.

I chose a fiddle leaf fig plant (mine is above). I’d seen it in so many pictures and the way the tree grows really stood out to me. It’s almost as beautiful as a piece of furniture. They can grow to 10 ft (3 M) tall and they really stand out and can be a great focal point in any room.


I decided I wanted to grow mine in my bathroom. Everything I read about taking care of them said that they need a lot of humidity and moisture. So I figured a humid bathroom was the perfect place. I even spoiled the plant, putting it in the shower daily to soak up even more moisture.  Then later I put it back on the windowsill to get enough of it’s daily sunshine.

Plants really add so much visually to a space. Plus they clean the air and are a fun project to take care of.


Some people decide they just want one plant as a focal point. Others turn rooms in their homes into complete jungles or rainforests. It’s all up to you.
