Create a Dreamy Bedroom by Decorating With These Houseplants
If you want to capture that perfectly dreamy aesthetic in your bedroom, decorating with houseplants is essential! You’d think the twinkle lights or breezy linens would be at the top of the list, but really, it’s all about the houseplants. Canopies of glossy green foliage cascading from your floating shelves will transform your room into a tranquil hideaway you’ll never want to leave. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel compelled to hit the snooze button on your alarm over and over again!
These Houseplants for the Bedroom Are What Dreams Are Made Of
Fuzzy pillows? Check. Macrame wall hanging? Check. Plush duvet? Check. Now all that’s left is the houseplants, and these six beauties are straight-up spellbinding.
The lush, voluminous foliage of the Maidenhair Fern adds a little bit of magic to your sleepy time scenery. They look just like fluffy clouds, but instead of white, they’re a vibrant golden-green shade. Hang it near a window or place it on a shelf that gets a great deal of bright, but indirect light. Try to avoid direct light beams hitting the leaves. Hanging some sheer white curtains will help to diffuse the direct light in your bedroom, plus it will add to that perfectly dreamy look! Water your fern frequently, as this variety prefers to have consistently moist soil.
Antlers seem to be popping up in so many different decor pieces and bedroom art; they’re the perfect combo of rustic charm and elegant minimalism. We think the Staghorn Fern looks just like a set of antlers, except small in size, and big on style! They’re epiphytic like an orchid, so you can even mount them to a wood plaque instead of putting them in a pot. Just make sure to moisten the root ball regularly to ensure it doesn’t dry out.
There’s a massive demand for houseplants with long vines for room decor, and Pothos N’ Joy is definitely one of the best contenders for your bedroom design. This pothos variety has mega-trendy variegated leaves, with streaks of creamy white contrasting with rich, emerald green. Place it on a floating shelf above your bed so the vines can dangle like a ceiling mobile. Or alternately, hang it in a basket in the window so light can peek through the leaves each morning.
Sansevieria ‘Black Star’
On a cloudy night when you can’t see the stars, you’ll be perfectly content to gaze at Sansevieria ‘Black Star’ as you drift to sleep. This lovely, low-maintenance houseplant has long, dark green, sword-like leaves with a creamy golden border. It grows upward, not outward, so it’s perfect for decorating small bedroom spaces. This Sansevieria doesn’t need as much light as your typical plant, nor does it need very much water. So, if you’re the forgetful type, this stunner deserves a spot in your bedroom.
Calathea ‘White Fusion’
We can’t help but dreamily sigh whenever we catch a glimpse of the absolutely breathtaking Calathea ‘White Fusion’. Its richly colored leaves look like Vincent Van Gogh painted them with swirling streaks of white and green oil paints. It’s a type of prayer plant, which means its leaves will rise and fall with the sunrise and sunset, changing shape each day. Water it with distilled water to keep those incredible leaves looking their best.
Hoya Australis ‘Lisa’
There’s a vintage charm to the Hoya Australis ‘Lisa’ ; a reincarnation of the wildly popular varieties in the ‘70s and is now making a huge comeback thanks to some savvy lab creation of the ‘Lisa’ cultivar. The variegated leaves have a tie-dye effect with dark borders and lighter centers, but new growth emerges with a rosy pink tone! You can train the vines to grow around a trellis, and we love the look of a hoop trellis for this bedroom plant. If your Hoya gets enough light, it will produce some lovely, fragrant flower clusters after the summer solstice once the days start to shorten.
Plants and vines are the perfect finishing touch for your room decor, bringing together that dreamy, carefree aesthetic to lull you to sleep. Browse our full catalog to see all our incredible new houseplants that are ready for home delivery!
