Mindfulness Home Decor: Designing with Plants in Mind

Mindfulness is the quality or state of being conscious and aware of something. It comes through focusing on the present moment. To make mindfulness the purpose of interior design is to design a place that promotes peace, focus and consciousness.

Plants offer the following to any space they decorate:

•  The soothing focus that comes with the color green
•  The fresh, purified air that plants generously give at all times
•  The gentle shapes and motions of their leaves
•  The soothing routines of nurturing and caring for a quiet, living creature

    When you design with plants in mind, you promote mindfulness and consciousness of Mother Nature, and all she has given us in terms of shelter, nourishment, and companionship.
