Bringing the Outdoors In

By:  Pojie Pambid




Interior landscaping plays a major role in any interior space. Potted plants, indoor trees and even tabletop arrangements when strategically placed in any room, gives off a fresh and green vibe that makes for a comfortable and natural environment. This March, Our Home captures the essence and the beauty of greenery and makes it a staple in interior stylings to highlight furniture and furnishings for a cool, fresh and comfortable look and feel. Seek inspiration in the use interior plants in these settings and be amazed at the results.



The focal for this month of March is a living room set-up that highlights an L-Shaped sofa in the entrance vignette. A beige, plush, couch in soft, velvety upholstery takes center stage in the setting and is accentuated by a pair of matte black accent chairs. These accent chairs stand out on their own as they are contemporary versions of English Provincial Windsor chairs but done in high-back proportions. Complementing the setting is a set of center, side and console tables that are made of dark wood also in a flat and matte finish but is designed with a series of reeded vertical details. Throw pillows on the couch are a combination of green and gold striped patterns and a solid moss green fabric matching a plush, shag rug on the floor, in chartreuse. A pair of tall, table lamps with ceramic, teal bases and beige shades are added to pick up the greens in the setting while accessories are curated to echo the outdoor feel in the form of potted plants and ferns distributed all throughout. The backdrop is a pair of concrete arches establishing an outdoor feel and in between, a solid panel donned in wallpaper with gold and green leaf designs. A pair of tall potted bamboo plants are placed right inside the concrete arches to accentuate the arch and to give the setting an air of verticality. The whole setting is raised on a silver platform illuminated by a string of warm white strip lights for emphasis.



The dining room setting consists of a long, wooded, oval shaped table surrounded by Scandinavian inspired dining chairs. The table is finished in a matte, walnut stain to reveal warm grains on the wood while at the same time complementing the same wood finish on the dining chairs. Beige fabrics serve as the upholstery of the chairs to connect with the living set-up for a cohesive and consistent feel.  On top, an off-white large round ceramic vase contains a set of twigs that evoke a minimal approach to a centerpiece. At the side, an oval shaped sideboard serves as a functional storage piece, designed with vertical reeded details and finished in a dark wood, matte stain. On top, a tall lamp in a teal base echoes the same color palette and behind, a tall phicus tree serves as a soft, green addition to the setting. A pair of walnut horizontal wooden cutwork panels serve as a backdrop while underneath, a shag rug in a deep brown anchors the entire vignette giving off an earthy feel.



The bedroom setting mimics the same design ambiance of the living and dining setting with a queen-sized bed set in a diagonal angle. The bed is in a fully upholstered bed frame in beige fabric with a tufted headboard design. Behind, another pair of walnut horizontal wooded cutwork panels frames a tall, lush phicus tree and adds the outdoor element in this setting. Flanking the bed are two walnut bedside tables and on top, matching table lamps with natural stone bases reinforce the natural feel of the look.  The bed is donned in an avocado-colored bedspread with printed pillows in leaf patterns as accents. And at the foot of the bed, a pair of hunter green tub chairs form a conversation area. Beside the bedroom vignette is an accent wall consisting of the same concrete arches flanking an accent panel in green and gold leaf patterned wallpaper. But this time, showcases an etagere filled with a collection of modern sculptures interspersed with potted ferns and succulents. Again, the entire setting is anchored on a shag brown floor rug to achieve the same comfortable, earthy feel.
