25 (Earthy) Ways To Bring Life, Serenity and Beauty Into Your Home

Source: The Sweet Escape 
For as long as I can remember, I've always lived surrounded by plants. In fact, when I think 
back to when I was growing up in the Dominican Republic, almost every inch of our house was 
decorated with flowers, small plants, tall plants, hanging plants, vegetable plants, you name it. 
My mother had turned our home into the plant kingdom. But I absolutely loved it, and still do 
to this day. In fact, I kind of followed in my mom's footsteps. 

Even though I grew up in cities for most of my life, I always felt surrounded by nature. 
And now being around trees, gardens, flowers and plants, to me represents life, happiness, 
a sense of brightness, beauty and calm. Most importantly, it reminds me of my wonderful and 
happy childhood. I never understood my mom's obsession, but i'm glad that wherever we 
went I was able to grow up in a little tamed jungle learning to appreciate the beauty and 
magic of living within nature. It's the most wonderful feeling. 

You don't need to have a green thumb to appreciate greenery, there are a variety of plants for every 
taste: low-maintenance, indoors, outdoors, etc. Go to your local nursery or Home Depot and 
ask for their recommendations based on your needs and lifestyle. If a little overwhelmed, just 
start with one plant but place it somewhere you can see it everyday. I can promise you, 
it'll brighten up your life. Here are some awesome inspirations to help you get started:
