What Houzz contributors are saying:
14. Location: Sunshine Coast, Queensland Why we love it: Because it shows how a coloured splashback – apple green in this instance – is all you need to inject life into an all-white kitchen. Top points for the overhead trellis that ties the colours together perfectly.
5. Bring the outside in, big timeHere’s another decorating idea that’s relatively straightforward, if you have a decent amount of light entering a room; erect a trellis just below ceiling height, then train a trailing vine such as devil’s ivy (Pothos), which can grow up to several metres in the right indoor conditions, over the top to provide a beautiful green canopy. This is particularly appealing above a dining table or as a softening device in an otherwise hard-surfaced area. Tip: For maximum convenience this can be grown out of a plumbed-in planter.See more spaces designed for plant lovers
Touches of greeneryNothing evokes the feel-good factor more than a touch of greenery, and with a few carefully selected plants displayed around the kitchen, or draped across a supported trellis, you’ll have a room with renewed vigour and vitality. What’s more, if you’re keen to add some colour to an all-white space, indoor plants or herbs will easily colour it up, while their natural benefits will ensure the space feels fresh and uplifting. Tip: Look out for plants that can cope with the fluctuating heat and humidity, such as mother-in-law’s tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata), and tropical devil’s ivy (Epipremnum aureum).
Living green inside and outThis eco-friendly home in Queensland promotes the idea of green living both laterally and literally. A custom-made pergola was fitted in the kitchen area, which the creeper vine growing within can wrap itself around.
