Creating an Interior Oasis with Spring-Coloured Houseplants

home decor

This Spring, it is time to bring back colour to the home décor palette! Designers bring splashes of sunshine to the runway with Aurora yellow. Fusion Coral brings a softer shade of warmth. This season's classic red is tangy orange Tomato Puree. For something soothing reminiscent of the beach, there's Ampara blue from the blue-green family. And of course, what's Spring without the distinctive purplish hue, violet?

Plants are an excellent way to bring Spring colours into your home landscape. Even the smallest splash of green can enliven a space. These are some flowering indoor plants featuring the sizzling colours of Spring 2010.

Geranium, Orchids, Bromeliads
Azaleas: Azaleas are available in a wide array of pastel shades, ranging from cream, through pink to yellow and orange. They are strong plants which will grow for many years once established.

Orchids: This plant is shown to contain natural air cleansers that clean up the air in your house environment. The different colors of orchids also bring out a calming effect to the mind.

Bird of Paradise: The Bird of Paradise is one of the most tropical flowers in the world, with a wide array of beautiful Fusion Coral, Aurora yellow and orange plumage. Fortunately, they're also surprisingly easy to grow indoors.

Lavender: This violet-hued plant is good for those who have insomnia. Put a pan of lavender on your bedside table and experience the calming fragrance of the plant. This plant produces natural oil that is believed to bring out a refreshed mind.

Geranium: The bright colours of the flowers of this plant create and attract joy in your house. Choose from dusky pink, Ampara blue and violet. This plant might be little but the task that it plays is great as it assists in keeping our senses alive and contented.

Rosemary: This plant may be employed in cooking as well as herbal mixes that help the body's capability to heal muscle pains, fungi sickness and digestive issues. Rosemary has different colors like white, pink, purple and blue.

Hydrangeas: Hydrangeas are fascinating in that, unlike most other plants, the colour of their flowers can change dramatically. It is not unusual to see several different colors on one shrub the next year after planting.

Bromeliads: Bromeliads are one of the best tropical plants to grow in your home. They are extremely adaptable, tolerating a variety of home environments and they come in vivid shades of oranges, including Tomato Puree. Bromeliads can be grown in windows or under fluorescent light.
