Fill Spaces with Plants
It sounds so simple but its true! Adding a few living plants to a room can make it feel more finished and homey. We recommend using low maintenance plants like succulents if you don’t have the greenest of thumbs. If you can successfully keep your succulent alive try something a little larger!
