There are many types of plants that are appropriate in any home interior. We will talk about the main types of natural and artificial flowers, which are very popular in our time.
The variety of living representatives of the flora can be divided into three groups:
- The first one includes decorative leafy plants.which either do not bloom at all, or their flowers are not beautiful enough. But they are distinguished by an unusually beautiful leaf shape, which may also have an unusual color. These include ferns, ficus, tradescantia, palm trees, coleus and many other plants.
- The second variety is decorative flowering specimens. Some of them have a long flowering period, others may take only a few days. Some flowers can give only one flowering shoots, while others delight the eye with lush and large buds. These include Saintpaulias, cyclamens, begonias, roses, gardenias.
- The third type is a family of succulents. They accumulate water in the leaves and stems, and therefore differ in a rather strange shape. It is worth noting that many of them give beautiful flowers.
Nowadays, artificial flowers have taken pride of place in decorating residential and office interiors. Thanks to modern materials and the latest technology manufacturers can create a truly masterpiece copies, which at first glance is difficult to distinguish from the living.
Artificial plants are good because they do not require care, while they are always green and beautiful.
Of course, even the most delightful artificial flower cannot be replaced by a live plant. But this is a great alternative to landscaping a room for those who suffer from pollen allergies.
You can create a flower composition from artificial plants yourself. It is enough to show imagination, to have a couple of hours of free time, and your interior will be decorated with stylish decor.
One of the favorite materials for creating floral details is Foamiran. From it surprisingly naturalistic, bright flowers turn out. Moreover, the creation of a composition with your own hands will allow you to choose the optimal color for a particular interior.

Foamiran is also good for being easy to color, it’s easy to work with it for both adults and children. And if you do not like the shade of the resulting flowers, you can safely repaint the petals in the desired color.
A fine analogue of artificial flowers in the interior are ornamental non-living trees. They are often found in city apartments, country houses, offices and even in various municipal institutions. And all because bonsai has an amazing ability to look organically in any interior and is fully consistent with natural counterparts.
Artificial trees enrich the interior, adding to its attractiveness and aesthetics. In addition, such decorative elements positively affect the emotional background of the person, the interior seems more well-groomed and alive.

Some indoor plants do not cease to amaze with the shape of the leaves and colors even after drying. They are most often used as a material for the manufacture of autumn and winter bouquets, various compositions for decoration. It can be dry flowers, berries, wheat stalks and just beautiful twigs.
To dry the copy you like, just put the flowers in a vase without water or hang from the ceiling in a dry place.

But there are a large number of other annual and perennial flowers that will organically complement the dry bouquet: limonium, yarrow, gypsum. Extravagance of the composition can be added with the help of inflorescences and seed pods, for example, decorative onions.
The plants of the family of cereals look amazing: a shaker, a hawktail, a deadly barley and many others. However, despite all their beauty, there is no dried flower more beautiful than amaranth, hydrangea, yarrow, rose.
You can add a bouquet of originality with the help of various elements: stones, beads, floristic ribbons, costume jewelry. According to astrologers, all dried flowers are natural accumulators of nature's energy, which contributes to filling the house with feelings and love.
Dried flowers are an excellent solution for interior decoration, especially for those who do not have the ability to care for fresh flowers. A bouquet of dried herbs and stems will look great in the living room or kitchen, in a cozy cafe, homemade food restaurant and even in office rooms.
