Have you heard green is the new black? No, we are not talking about fashion! Maybe how plants bring home back to life? Or the benefits they can have on your health, love and overall happiness? Yes, houseplants are the best accessory your home can get right now! This may not be your typical post on FTG blog, but really, how fashionable are indoor plants right now?!

If you just scroll down an Instagram page of average millennials, you will clearly see how obsessed they became with an urban garden theme. Since many of the millennials are also renters with limited decorating and budget opportunities, houseplants really help to make any space feel like home.

With the 70’s interior design vibe that came back in style this year, succulents, cactuses, Monstera and Dracaena plants and small indoor palm trees are a key to a happy modern home including cosy living spaces, spa-inspired bathrooms and homey kitchens. The enthusiasm doesn’t stop here though, indoor accessories make the whole story come together, with macrame hanging pots, terrariums and mid-century pot stands to lead the trend.

Stylish homes are not the only ones reserved for lovely greenery, it’s offices, modish coffee shops and restaurants that make this movement live too. On the other said, fashion retailers such as Urban Outfitters selling indoor plants and accessories make this trend available to everyone and people are loving it!
