How to make your indoor plants pop on Instagram

For the past few years, we’ve noted the importance of plants in design and interiors, plus we can’t ignore that impact of Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year: Greenery. With the rise of mindfulness and wellness, the boundaries begin to blur between indoor and outdoor, for both public and retail spaces. From the workspace, to bedding and tabletop collections to the bathroom, flora and foliage is growing in every direction. We all want to take care of our well-being and reduce stress in our lives, it’s time to head to nearest plant store and immerse yourself in greenery!
