The indoor plant aesthetic is one that is closely related to a few different interior design aesthetics. It can be found complimenting aesthetics such as modern, bohemian rustic and even industrial designs. Indoor plants and the aesthetic that they usually create can also even mix with minimalism, just not all that often.
There is something really peaceful that I find about the presence of plants indoors. For some it could be the connection to nature, to others it could be the idea of nurturing something fickle or it could even be brightening up a boring room. I never thought of myself as someone who subscribes by this aesthetic because I have just 3 plants, but even so I find it interesting to look at what some people have done with their spaces. I’m not entirely certain why I got my first plant but soon after I did, I realized that it needed a home. So in a rather hipster fashion, I up-cycled a pallet that I found and turned it into a plant shelf with a timed growing light. Then it obviously needed some company so I got a second.

What I did in my apartment is on the simple side of what a lot of people do, especially compared to what I saw when I trawled through Instagram to write this blog post. I think that for a lot of people, they put plants in their homes because it brightens up spaces, affords creativity and utilizes what would have been empty space. However, a lot of people take it much farther than that. The first image in this post is what I would call a little overboard, but it is still cool to look at, regardless of whether or not I would live there. Here are some other images that I think do a good job showing off this aesthetic:

Again, one of the things that I like about this aesthetic is how it works well in tandem with many different aesthetics and design styles. In all of these images, there are super different styles, yet they leverage indoor plants in similar ways. Also there is something pretty relaxing about watering plants as well as not killing them.
