One of my favorite ways to accessorize a home is with plants. Big ones, small ones, scented plants or aesthetically pleasing ones – they are a great way to bring some life into your home.

Not only are plants nice to look at, but there are countless health benefits to having them around, too! For example, aloe has air-cleaning capabilities and can be used on the skin, while lavender smells incredible and helps you sleep! Plant variations are countless, but I’ve collected some of my favorites from around the internet for a little inspiration if you’re looking to add some greenery to your home, all of which are easy to care for!

Burro Tail

This unique plant is very sculptural and would look great being hung in a sunroom.

This succulent is so naturally beautiful! It would look great in a terrarium or in a simple pot like the one above. Wherever you put it, just make sure it’s low enough so people can see it.

Nothing really beats the beauty of this lavender-blue plant! Again, this would be lovely on a windowsill but would also look great on a table, dresser or anywhere else low enough to be admired.
