Tips to Make Your Modern Home an Urban Jungle

Submerge yourself in greenery and the aroma of blooms. Having houseplants is not only aesthetically pleasing, the act of nurturing plants is also incredibly therapeutic.  They create a fresh, natural ambiance, giving a glowing green spark of life to any space. Having plants indoors has been proven to lower blood pressure and stress levels, increase concentration, decrease mental fatigue, and reduce air particulates and toxins. Plants such as Boston Ferns or Crotons are known to cleanse toxic elements and irritants such as carbon monoxide, ammonia, formaldehyde, pollen, bacteria, and mold. Fill your home with natural beauty and fresh oxygen!

Install a living wall! Designate an area of your home where you can reserve an entire wall to grow herbs, mosses, or succulents! The air will be fresh, and you will enter and leave the room feeling a sense of renewal and serenity.

Make your outdoor area a paradise of comfort and beauty. Whether you live in a suburb, or downtown atop a high-rise, hanging hammocks, carefully placing lounge furniture, and adorning surfaces with flowers and trees is essential.

Have too many allergies, or leave town too often to care for plant life? Make it a project of finding floral wallpaper, exotic wall art, or commission a mural of a jungle scene or forest view. Breathe in the green of nature.

Build an outdoor bathing area filled with greenery and bright flowers. You can even utilize your garden hose faucet to convert into a shower, bathtub, or pool. Make your bathing ritual a retreat into wilderness, and leave the bath feeling cleansed in every way.
