Houseplant colour & interior decor.

It was a rainy day, but not that it bothered me. I was being far too busy redecorating my abode. It’s the second time I’ve been doing this recently. Before that all was the same for about three years. What does that imply? Not sure. I got rid of some furniture. A rather large piece. That used to act as a shelf for my plants. I now realise that I have rather a few plants. But nowhere to put them as we speak. Oh dear, what a dilemma. Another realisation in this process was the importance of matching houseplant colour & interior decor. Green is not always the same shade of green, and this does not always go with that.

Loving this lime green colour of a fern against blue velvet.

Green can have an undertone of yellow. Limegreen is one of my favourite colours, no matter if interior decor, green space or fashion. There’s something cheerful about this shade, but stylish at the same time. And it REALLY rocks with blue. A truly sensational colour combo. In my humble opinion.

It can also have a cold undertone, tending towards blueish. In my home, where I have midnight blue walls this is not a good match. However, I do also have a wall covered in a floral multicoloured patterned wallpaper with blue undertones. No problem at all with the match there.

The same goes for my Schefflera. Put it up against the blue wall and the impact is zero. Against the wallpaper, however, not bad at all. You just have to keep trying till you get it right …
