For the most part, interior design is exactly what it says it is - a way to craft and curate the inside of the buildings in which we live and work so that they are visually as well as physically relaxed and appealing to us.

It is just fascinating, and maybe a little humorous, to note how much of that phase depends on how much we can bring in with us outside. Wood furniture, stone finishes and even animal hides on rugs and pillows are all little hints to the great outdoors that when we're indoors we love to surround ourselves with.

But perhaps the most essential and most useful are plants for all of the various ways we find to sneak nature into our man-made dwellings. You should never underestimate the value of having plants as part of your everyday living space when it comes to good design - whether at home or in the workplace.

There are countless possibilities, and you just don't know if the flower or plant you love so much would be able to flourish in the part of your home where you want it to live. Let's see some of the choices and imagine how lovely they are:

Kitchen decoration with greenery:

For decorating this part of the house, herbal plants are a highly recommended choice. For both your dishes and your kitchen, parsley, rosemary, basil and mint will add a new and delicious touch. They need a lot of light, however, to stay in perfect shape.

We suggest more robust plants, such as Aloe Vera and the cactus family, when your kitchen is not very clear. In the room, they will also inject a touch of green and joy.

Flowers for bright rooms:

For plants and flowers, bright rooms are heaven and offer endless decorative possibilities. It's necessary, however, to try to ensure that they don't get too much direct sunlight as they can get burned. It is often a good idea in very bright rooms to add a touch of color and contrast with fresh flowers.

For this type of environment gerberas symbolizing joy and innocence, maybe an ideal and fun choice, as they come in multiple colors that you can combine to fill a room with positive energy.

Alternatively, in pale-colored rooms, for example, red roses or alstroemerias add an elegant and classic touch. If you are looking for a garden, the calathea, the maize plant and the Swiss cheese plant in your bedroom or living room are really easy to look after and look fabulous.

Wall hanging herb garden:

There are a variety of enjoyable and innovative ways to add plants to your home in different areas. Best ways to combine the greenery and/or flowers' aesthetic beauty with the plant's functionality in ways that allow the plant not only to contribute to the look of the room but also to be of some use, such as getting lavender plants in a home office to help chase away stress. Another brilliant idea is to have a kitchen garden with hanging herbs. It is possible to keep a variety of wonderful, fresh herbs in your kitchen using tiny planters that will not only embellish the room, they will also add a new dash of freshness to your cooking. And better, the setup is a breeze. You can make a simple but fascinating pattern by using individual planters rather than a set of shelves, which allows you to use your plants not only as cooking aids but also as wall art.

Plants and flowers balcony:

It is important to bear in mind the amount of light it receives and its exposure to rain if you have a small terrace or balcony and you want to fill it with life using plants and flowers. For example, for very sunny balconies, geraniums, daisies and lavender are safe bets as they are sturdy plants that love a lot of sunlight.

You can choose the busy Lizzie, begonia or the vinca if your balcony is not quite sunny, as they grow well in darker locations. Low temperatures must be avoided, however, and they should be periodically watered.

Again, if it's very bright, we don't suggest placing your bouquet of flowers on the balcony, as the direct sunlight is too aggressive for them. In the summer, you can put your vase outside to give your flowers some air and refresh them if the nights are not too humid.

Succulents & cacti:

With the greenest of thumbs, not all of us are lucky. It can be tricky to care for plants, and depending on the type of plant, the environment in which you live and how much time you have to devote to the process, certain plants can be much, much harder to keep safe and prosperous than others.

 But even if you haven't had the best luck with plants in the past, that is to say, they keep dying on you, there are a variety of very hearty house plants that are much easier to care for, and much more likely to reward long and steady growth for your efforts. You may want to consider choosing a cactus or succulent plant for your home, for instance. Both are types of desert plants, though green and vibrant, and are well-suited to conditions that would be less than hospitable to other types of plants. These plants, in fact, require only a little water and sunlight, and otherwise have very little maintenance, making them easy to care for. These plants often have an unusual look, in addition to their strength and durability, which fits very well aesthetically in interiors with a more modern design style due to their linear shapes.

Sola wood blooms:

Think of using sola wood flowers to add a little life to your room for a long-term solution that needs less time and efforts. Flowers can also be less costly alternative, in addition to being less time consuming, depending on how often you want to replace them. However, changing your flowers can be a perfect way to improve your room's appearance without too much cost or effort. Cut flowers are a fast and easy choice that can boost your mood, but you want to go about it, and add some much-needed color pops to your home.
