Big things are happening in my apartment! And when I say big, I really mean reorganizing and moving furniture around – apartment living, amiright? While we’d love to be knocking walls down and redoing the floors, I’ll settle with creating the cutest little monochromatic focal point with plants in my bedroom!
I love white pots – we really only have pots in a few colors, primarily white and terra cotta, with a few others sprinkled in. After moving a dresser around, so that it’s sitting directly in front of a bright window, I knew I’d have to move plants to fill up the space.
Creating a monochromatic look
So, I pulled an armful of plants from around the apartment and placed most of my plants in white pots to give a nice, uniform look. As it turns out, the plants I have in white pots all work really well together. Together, they’re a nice combination of small and large, viney and succulents.
When creating a monochromatic look, keep these tips in mind:
- Mix up the pots – go for a single color in multiple shapes and sizes
- Diversify your plants – keep it interesting with multiple types of plants
- Keep it fresh – I like to move plants around pretty frequently, if you’re not loving the arrangement, try out another combination
I love the monochromatic look this arrangement creates. It’s almost like the white pots fade away into the wall, the plants are the complete focus!
From left to right, here are the plants I have on this dresser:
- Variegated pothos
- Sansevieria or snake plant
- Aloe vera
- Variegated hoya
You may notice the wall in the background too, we’re making a few other updates around the apartment. I can’t wait to share more photos once we’ve finished decorating and reorganizing!
