Spring is near and you know what that means…..plants!!! Everyone is potting plants, planting flowers, and preparing for gardening. Is there anyone else out there that just gets SUPER happy when you see plants? Like seriously, when there are plants in a home, store, office, etc. I automatically get about 10x happier! Lol! It has actually been proven that having plants in any environment increases productivity and efficiency (Does that mean I’ll get more laundry & cleaning done??? ;)). In this post ‘Making Your Home Cozier Using Plants‘ I just want to show you the many ways that you can make your home into a cozy haven easily using some greens and florals!
Something that I have discovered is that plants can be really easy to keep in your home, but they can also be really hard to take care of. It definitely matters what type of plant it is and what season you are in. For a few tips, here is a great blog post I found on taking care of houseplants for beginners. Just so all know, I definitely am NOT an expert at this…lol. But I would love to be someday!

Use Floral Stems
Honestly, I do not think I could ever say that enough. I absolutely love floral stems and it is SO easy to add them into any single space – the kitchen, living room, bathroom – you name it, you can put a floral stem there! Here are just a few different options that are neutral enough for any space that I have paired with any of these beautiful vases + pottery! With floral stems, I have several faux stems that make it much easier to keep and take care of (obviously lol!), but whenever Trader Joe’s has some pretty looking greenery I always pick up some fresh ones!
Olive branches, cotton stems, lavender, and eucalyptus stems are always wonderful options for around your home year-round! You can get all of these as fresh/dried stems. If you click on any picture it will take you directly to the product. 🙂 Here are some ways to style these lovely stems:

Find Creative Ways to Pot Your Plants
There are sooooo many cozy, creative ways to pot plants! You don’t just have to use a plain old plant pot (but you definitely can if you want to), & I have rounded up a few of my favorite creative ways to pot plants in your home to add a touch of cozy!
First up, baskets. I am seriously in loveeee with plants potted/set in baskets. There is just something so refreshing about it and it’s an easy easy way to add a little creativity to your space! You really can find a basket just about anywhere you go and if you hit Hobby Lobby sales when they are 50% off, you bet my cart would be full of them.
There are a few different ways to hang plants, my favorite being the macrame plant hanger! Ugh, I am in love & if I didn’t have 10 foot ceilings, no ladder, and live in an apartment – you betcha I’d have these things all over the place! Someday, someday. You can usually buy them single or stacked! I think these plant hangers can make ANY space look cozier.

Haha, not really, but kind of! There are some really cozy ways to put your plants on the walls in your home! The allows the plants to still be in your home, but kind of out of the way – the best of both worlds.
These little succulent holders are perfect to hang in any little spot around your home to brighten things up! They are super easy to hang & allow the plants to be up and out of the way. The vintage/galvenized wall planters below are so perfect for a Farmhouse feel!
And my favorite – IKEA’s Fintorp planter….guys, I am seriously in LOVE. These make the most beautiful wall planters and are reasonably price!
