Green living room – being inspired by nature. How life is, we are spending more and more time indoors. It might sound unbelievable but it actually accounts for around 90% of our time! That’s why we need to create a home environment which will remind us that we are still part of nature.

Almost 70% of this time is actually spent at home (thanks to COVID-19). You can read How to stay resistant to coronavirus in one of my previous articles.

Real green plants

Not only do we need fresh air and to be able to see the Sun for our mental health; we need to see real plants as well. So, if you want to add more green to your living room, you should start by start by adding real plants.

To do this, you can have several large plants which will remind you of the trees. In the same vein, you can have plants hanging from the ceiling in hanging baskets in the corner of the room.

I loved having these as a child in my parents flat. This always calmed me when I was looking at them. As I grew up in a post-communist concrete housing estate, having real plants in our home was really refreshing.

These could be simple moss walls or a complex system known as vertical gardens. Obviously, using real plants will both purify your air and add an extra wow factor to your home.

However, the simplest solution for adding a splash of green colour to your living room is painting some walls green. If you are thinking of adding some decor to the walls, you should check out wallpapers as well.
