It is true that most of us don’t have majestic budgets available for home decorating, meaning when a wall (whether interior or exterior) needs a bit of sprucing up, it pays to have some clever and creative (not to mention pocket-friendly) tips on hand – which is exactly what today’s piece will be focusing on! 

We at homify have decided to shine the spotlight on imaginative ideas on how you can use plants and flowers from your garden to liven up those bland walls – and yes, you do not need to rob a bank to be able to copy these decorations.

Thus, if you love getting your hands dirty (gardening wise) and want to know how you can use that passion to inject some interior designer-style flair into your home, then scroll right ahead.

1. Some clever lighting can really enhance your greens.

2. Use old household items (like window shutters) as mounting boards.

3. Accentuate those lush pieces with some colourful patterns.

5. Wall-mounted flower containers will always be a striking touch.

6. Opt for natural materials for a garden-friendly look.

7. For tiny spaces, you can go quite small with vertical gardens.

9. Integrated solutions can help save so much space.

10. If you want to make a BIGGER statement, use entire walls.

12. How about growing some veggies on your walls?

13. These wall-mounted ideas are great alternatives to hanging baskets.

14. With a little DIY, ironwork can be custom-made for your walls.

15. There is no such thing as “too much wood”. Ever.

17. Consider the look of wooden planks and nails – simple, yet effective.

18. Trailing plants always look wonderful and can cover so much surface space.

19. A fresh green wall in your bathroom? Why not?

21. Try adding a striking colour to the wall itself.

22. Even narrow spaces can become lush and beautiful vertical gardens.

24. Climbers are a good value, high-cover option.

25. These little shields of plants ensure an eye-catching look on any wall.

26. Want to opt for a modern look? A geometric display is just one of many options.

27. Any amount of space can work if you scale back your installation.

28. How about adding matching planters for some extra pizzazz?

29. Glass bowls against a timber surface? What a visually stimulating touch.

30. Rustic planters are perfection, and don’t necessarily have to go with a rustic space.

31. A wall-mounted water feature? Now that’s a clever look for any space!

32. Let that wall-mounted plant grow without any trimming to see what lush and natural looks it can create.

33. Any dull wall can be spiced up with colourful plants.

34. We always adore a varied mix of different plants.

35. Want a real eye-catcher? Go with an exotic bloom or two.

36. Inject some fresh style into those wall niches.

37. Bamboo can always be counted upon for a natural and holistic look.
