Interior decorations focus on furniture designs and placing. The concept is to make optimum use of the space available without cramming the room, giving a claustrophobic feeling. Irrespective of the size of the home, some aspect of greenery has to be added; not only does it adds colour, but livens up the entire space.
A cool chilly shade from trees or surrounding plants is calming for the nerves. A general prevailing idea is that greenery in a home has to come from trees or plants planted outside a home. A general trend is noticed; people either shifting before or after in their new homes will set out to buy common plants and trees for their gardens.
Besides plants pots of flowers are often seen lined across drives or entry ways to add colour. But a thought that must cross one’s mind is that, people tend to spend more time inside their homes that outside. All the greenery and décor done outside has little or no effect on the ambience and atmosphere inside. A fairly monotonous interior decoration often seen in homes is a space filled with thick bulky furniture. The irony being all plants and pots inside homes are placed to fill up spaces and add colour only.
The idea has now changed and the perspective has shifted to indoor plants being the center of attention instead of furniture. But there seems to be a problem, not many people have a lot of information about indoor plants other than a few enthusiastic tree huggers. For all those people who are novices to indoor plants, choosing the right one for their homes is somewhat rocket science.
Greying hair over which indoor plant to buy is not advisable, instead people can head over to Diamond Nursery located at Main Korangi Road. Diamond Nursery is Pakistan’s largest nursery dealing in imported plants and flowers. Annually 30 containers are imported for Karachi alone.
