It’s pretty well known that plants and flowers can boost our happiness and lower our stress levels. And in the summer, the bright colors can also add the perfect touch to our homes and gardens. So why not bring some of that relaxing energy inside and use nature as part of your home decorations.
One of the signature flowers of the summer season, the hibiscus has a tropical feel that will add a colorful touch of beauty to any room in your home. With the yellow hibiscus being the state flower of Hawaii, this is one flower that goes hand in hand with laid-back summer vibes.
The hibiscus likes lots of light and will bloom with gorgeous large flowers all summer long. If you have a particularly bright room in your home, you could see these happy flowers from spring through fall and maybe even winter, if your conditions are right. One of the best things about these beautiful plants is that they come in a wide variety of colors, meaning you can choose the best one to suit your home decor.
Also known as a guppy plant, the goldfish plant is a variety of African violet that loves the summer season. It will bloom throughout summer with these bright orange flowers that look like little goldfish. It’s best to place it in an area with a lot of light and because of the way it grows, it could look pretty sweet in a hanging basket.
If you have a room with a skylight or large windows, hanging this nearby could add a fun, summery touch to your home decor. Plus, if you’re lucky, you might even get this plant flowering all year long.
For a perfectly tropical addition to your home decor this summer, the guzmania plant is the ideal plant. With its long, thin leaves in a deep shade of green, and its brightly colored flower center, it can add a vibrant and interesting element to any room.
Make sure you place it in a room with lots of natural light. You’ll probably find that this exotic plant has enough interest in its foliage that you can place it in a simple vase or pot. This will highlight the boldness of the plant and, by keeping it simple, it can add a subtle touch of the tropics to any style of home decor.
Another tropical plant that loves to bloom throughout the summer season, the peace lily is an ideal plant to grow indoors. It’s easy to grow and can bring a wonderful summer feel to your home.
While these plants can survive even in lower lighting; the brighter the room, the more they will tend to flower. Because of their white flower-like leaves, they will enhance or complement almost any style of home decor. Another thing these lilies are good at, is cleaning and purifying the air, so they could be a good choice in bedrooms or offices, or other rooms where you tend to spend a lot of time.
