Living spaces at home are personalized to one’s comfort; it could simply be a chintzy sofa in the corner of the room or an abstract painting on an empty wall. Either way, people will add personalized touches, so that space looks more homely and welcoming.
When it comes to home décor a plain simple rule applies: each person’s taste is his own. Choices made reflect the personality and ideology of the person, thus when people visit, the first look of the surroundings will say a lot more about the inhabitants.
Generally homes are decorated with souvenirs from travels, family photographs, paintings, sculptures or works of art- all of these choices are entirely upon the discretion of the inhabitants. Some people might stray away from the typical decoration items and opt for a rather unique collection of masks from all across the world. To sum up, home décor inside and outside is solely upon tastes and preferences.
A similar idea of taste and preference applies to the choices made for plants and flowers. Pots of flowers are the first choice of many people when it comes to brightening up the living space; they are pretty to look at, add tremendous amount of colour, make the place look inviting and are fairly easy to maintain and care for. Thus flowers are a definite choice.
Besides flowers, will be the option of local or imported plants in pots which can be placed around the house- filling up empty spaces and bringing some life to the ambience. So flowers and potted plants are the favoured options for nearly most of the home owners and landscape designers.
Landscape designers/ artists shy away from incorporating plants which do not fall in the main stream choices; plants such as Cactuses. Cactuses are not advisable for homes with young toddlers and children because of their spines.
Well, no doubt cactuses are not suitable plants for a houseful of young children, but it does not mean that cactuses do not make beautiful house plants or cannot be added to a garden. Not the typical flowering plant many would like to have in their homes, cactuses possesses a beauty of their own. Diamond Nursery located at Main Korangi Road is a hub for exotic cactuses.
