Your home should be a place of comfort and relaxation, so why not create a peaceful spot in your home? One idea is to create an indoor oasis complete with greenery. Use the following tips to decorate a bookshelf with plants to create an oasis in your home!
Choose Your Bookshelf
If you can find an open industrial bookshelf, it would be a great option for your indoor oasis. You are creating an open, airy feeling that makes it easier to relax. Of course, a standard bookshelf against the wall also works for your oasis, but probably one without doors which can keep moisture inside and prevent plants from getting fresh air and enough sunlight. You can also consider a cubed shelving unit for organizing your plants, or you can choose floating shelves to save space.
Choose Your Indoor Plants
There are so many plants to consider for your indoor oasis, such as peace lilies, orchids, spider plants, aloe Vera, English ivy and cactus. The plants are going to depend on your preference and lifestyle. You want to choose plants in a variety of colors, shapes and textures to create an interesting but relaxing space. Remember to choose interesting planters as well, from clay pots to colorful vases to tin cans.
Arrange Your Greenery
The next step is to arrange your greenery. Depending on the type of plants you are choosing for your oasis, you may be able to display your plants on shelf risers. As for your bigger plants, imagine vines or long leaves hanging off your top shelf. You can also place hanging or floor plants on either side of your bookshelf. Finish it off with a comfortable chair, cushion or pouf /ottoman for enjoying your oasis.There is nothing like an oasis to create a peaceful environment in your home. With an industrial bookshelf and indoor plants, you can create your own oasis right in your living room!
