Looking ahead to the holiday season

The 2020 Holiday Season is NOT cancelled--in fact, it's only three months away. Now is the time to think about how you want to spread holiday cheer around your workplace or home. Custom holiday decor is a fast growing segment of interior design, with holiday displays created to suit any aesthetic or mood: traditional to modern, natural to glitzy, extravagant to subtle.


Plant Trend: Agave

For a fresh-looking modern design, agave make great interior plants. They like bright light, but don't need much water, so they're easy to maintain. Their thick, pointed leaves have a clean, minimalist look, so they are perfect for spaces that need plants but don't want a jungle aesthetic. Groupings in large containers create an especially dramatic look.


Plant Groups

If you have a large space, multiple plants in containers grouped together makes for an impactful way to bring green into your space. Consider mixing shapes and sizes, but keeping the container colors uniform for maximum effect.


Moss & Living Walls

Moss and living plant walls continue to be popular ways to bring biophilic design elements into your home or office. Moss walls can be customized to any shape, size, or style, and they don't require any maintenance. Living plant walls make dramatic visual statements, bringing all the air-cleaning benefits of live plants to spaces that may not have much floor area.
