Now, a lot of us are working from home more than we used to. So it pays to bring in elements that will make us feel comfortable working in such spaces. So, today I wanted to discuss greenery at home and what it can do for you!

It’s can set the tone of the space and lift your mood, productivity and creativity. Just look at the calming and inviting tone the greenery brings to the lounge room below!

Having greenery in your work area makes for an inviting space that will help you to settle in with your morning coffee and punch out that report you’ve been putting off!

There are other health benefits to having greenery indoors as it helps purify the air.

We all know that there can be hidden nasties lurking in the air, but did you know that there are not just outside of the house, or at nearby industrial areas, they can also be found inside your house. Think about  cleaning products, air fresheners, furniture sprays, gas from your stovetop, airborne mould and other volatile organic compounds (or VOCs) – can all contribute to a toxic environment literally right under your nose! Especially at this time of year – winter we are keeping those windows shut more often (therefor reducing air circulation) – real greenery indoors is recommended to help purify the air.

So go on, you’ll be doing yourself a favour!

It can also reduce stress. Who doesn’t want to see a gorgeous bunch of flowers or a terrarium full of succulents when they look away from their work desk? It’s also rewarding looking after another living thing and watching it grow.

Greenery will add a pop of colour to an otherwise drab space. Like new cushions are to a lounge, so too are plants to, well, any space really! Whether it be in the bathroom, the bedroom or the kitchen, there’s nothing like a pop of colour to give it a lift! And I’m not talking just green plants, consider flowers and make a real splash with some colour!

One style of flower I adore are peonies, like the one shown on the right. They exude effortless chic; passing as elegant and casual all at once!

Bumph & Scumble Artifical Orchids

I’ve spoken before about the positive effects of the colour green on your mind and if maintaining plants and flowers is all too much, consider faux flowers! They still look great and will never wilt if you get too busy to care for them. Here at Bumph & Scumble, we only settle for the best and the gorgeous orchids we have in studio (like the orchid arrangement shown here) does not disappoint!
