The new year is the perfect time to update your home! What better way to liven up your interior space than with some brand new potted plants? Continue reading below to learn about our favorite indoor plants for this time of year!

 

English Ivy

This plant is incredibly versatile and can be planted in pots or hanging baskets. English Ivy is known for growing incredibly quickly and is perfect for filling a bare spot on an empty shelf or mantel piece. The plant requires an evenly moist environment, consistent temperature, and occasional pruning. 

 

Snake Plant

This succulent is incredibly low-maintenance and great for beginners. The plant has leathery, sword shaped leaves with yellow and white details. It has an incredibly dramatic and upright shape that will make a bold statement in your home. Research has also shown that these plants will help to keep the air inside your home clean, removing toxins like formaldehyde and benzene!

Peperomia

This plant is a favorite because it is very easy to grow and maintain. Additionally, it is one of the smaller houseplants so it doesn't take up very much space in the home. The peperomia plant has a very unique leaf shape that varies in both shape and color. The leaves can be heart shaped and narrow and can be green, red, or grey! The peperomia plant loves light and thrives in a bright area. They make the perfect addition to your kitchen counter or accent table!

 

Succulent Arrangement

A succulent arrangement is great because not only do the plants vary in color and texture, they require little maintenance. The Echeveria elegans below is a succulent evergreen perennial that has beautiful rosettes of pale green-blue leaves and is perfect for winter and spring.

Christmas Decorating with Ginny MacDonald

We recently had the pleasure of hosting designer Ginny MacDonald at our Beverly store to shop our latest Christmas decor. She was able to find so many great pieces and styled them beautifully in her home. Continue reading below for a behind the scenes look into her design process! 

While shopping our store, Ginny selected primarily neutral ornaments that would compliment a natural and earthy interior space. To liven up her cream, white, and wood pieces she added some gold and bronze ornaments to her collection that are perfect for the holiday season.

Not only was Ginny able to find a great selection of ornaments at our Los Angeles store, but she also found the perfect tree for her living room! According to Ginny, faux is the way to go. She explains that she, "...just couldn't be bothered to deal with watering it and the needles dropping everywhere this year." Ginny used a basket rather than a traditional metal foot stand for the base of her tree to make it even more homey.

When trimming the tree, she advises that you distribute the various sizes, colors, and types of ornaments around the tree to create a balanced look. Ginny has shared her insider tip to achieve this balanced look,

"When decorating with ornaments (or baubles as we Brit's call them) I like to lay them out in baskets first to get a feel for what will sit best next to each other on the tree."

The garland over her archway is also faux, and came decorated with fairy lights and pine cones. However, for our more simple garlands, Ginny has provided some great decorating ideas below.

  • Cranberries threaded onto twine makes for a colourful beaded garland
  • Glass ornaments can be tied on for a more traditional classic vibe
  • Paper snowflakes tied on individually (which is something you could get kids involved with making) is a super quick, fun and budget friendly DIY.

The dining room is one of the most important rooms for Christmas decorating, because it is a space for family and friends will come together to share the holiday and a delicious meal. Ginny was able to stick to the overall neutral theme while simultaneously creating a unique and beautiful tablescape. The best way to create a dynamic and balanced table is through layering. Ginny explains her process,  

"I used a black and white striped runner down the length of the table to help ground everything and also to be a platform for the faux gold sprayed eucalyptus garland to sit on top. I then added a simple black candelabra to the centre of the table with white taper candles."

For the individual place settings, she stuck to the neutral palate using grey and white dinner plates and neutral linens. To add a personal touch, Ginny placed a simple dried orange and rosemary garnish tied together with white thread. Ginny also incorporated olive wood serving utensils which bring some additional warmth to the table.

We hope that you enjoyed this inside look into Christmas decorating with Rolling Greens! Make sure to stop by our Beverly store to pick up some last minute holiday pieces for your home.
