Looking to add a bit of color to your life?

Indoor plants are some of the most versatile pieces of decor to play with, and using a pop of color, whether on the plant’s foliage or the accessories that support it, is a fun way to add some personality to an otherwise dull area in your home. From minimal to bohemian and everything in between, here are a few simple tips to make your plants stand out.

Go for a boldly-colored ceramic

White ceramics are clean and cool, but what about colors that really make your greenery stand out? We found that cobalt blue was the match made in heaven when it came to lush greenery. Plants like the Bird of Paradise, Elephant Ear (pictured), and Desert Cactus look particularly stunning in this unique ceramic, and as bonus points give off vacation vibes all year long.

Accessorize with a colorful plant stand

When creating visual interest, plant stands are the way to go. Not only do they make your plant stand out, but they can be a great way to throw a bit of color into the mix. Layer and elevate your greenery with colorful plant stands, like these fun metallic stands by Amigo Modern.

Create contrast with surrounding surfaces

When decorating a new space or corner, consider the many ways you can create contrast with the foliage of your plants:

  • Dark foliage with light ceramics, like the Rubber Tree in a white pot

  • Light foliage with dark ceramics, like the Bird’s Nest Fern in a black pot

  • Boldly painted walls — think midnight blue or forest green — with bright plants against them

  • Layering plants with different shades of green

Brighten things up with a colorful plant

Of course one of the best ways to bring color into your home with plants is selecting a plant that is already colorful on its own! Plants like the Pink Rubber Tree, Magenta Triostar, or Calathea Medallion (pictured) immediately brighten up a space with their bright pops of pink.
