How to Use Plants in Your Home Decorating

Here are some more tips to help you with your decorating.

Are your cathedral ceilings making you feel overwhelmed with all that extra vertical height? Do your extra high ceilings make your artwork seem small and out of proportion? Just because a wall reaches to the sky, doesn't mean you have to let it overpower your furniture and accessories.

You could also use other decorative trims to achieve the same effect. You could also use wood to make a large bordered off area on the wall, then hang a creative wall grouping inside the bordered space. This will greatly reduce the proportions of the amount of wall space that "needs" to be decorated and draws even more attention to the artwork that you do have.

I recommend artificial plants as you're not going to want to get up there every week to water and you certainly don't want water dripping down from above.

Use decorative ceiling hooks that come with toggle bolts, which you can get at any hardware store. Hanging baskets are great and they are very light weight. Be sure to vary the heights for a more interesting arrangement.
