The Before:  Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before   Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before Color Lovers series! @diyshowoff dining room before

My dining room has very little natural light. So adding fun colorful elements took it from gloomy to cheerful! Hey, I’m a neutral loving girl too, but I was ready for some fun pops of color in that bland uninspired dining room.

The Plan: (see THIS post for more details)…my design board included a beautiful color combination of navy and chartreuse, blush and gray.

…finally, a room with some fun personality and color! Decorative accessories + paint = a color lovers’ dream! I love the power of paint, don’t you? Take a look!

How to Decorate with Air Plants – The Lunar Fae Way

How to Decorate with Air Plants – The Lunar Fae Way:

I’m so happy to introduce you to my talented & beautiful daughter, Evangeline from The Lunar Fae, sharing some tips on how to decorate with air plants. decorating with airplants #thelunarfae @diyshowoff

Have you heard of incredible wonder of nature that is the air plant yet?

decorating with airplants #thelunarfae @diyshowoff

Meet Tillandsia. This little lady is easily becoming my favorite plant to decorate with, due to how very low maintenance she is! She doesn’t care for soil (score! neither do I, my cats dig it up), she only needs watering once a week and if you forget for a day or two, she probably won’t die either (double score! How can I be expected to hydrate the life of others on a regular basis when I’m just grasping how to hydrate mine!?)

decorating with airplants #thelunarfae @diyshowoff

My current obsession is mixing plants with my other obsession, crystals! There’s just something soooo pleasing about a plant emerging from crystal coated caverns or a chunky mineral.

Have any geodes laying around? My lovely, add an air plant! You won’t be sorry and it’ll probably make you appreciate the geode more regularly too!

Have any votive gemstone candle holders? Add an air plant! Most candles are full of toxins anyways.

Have an empty jar, planter, or dying terrarium? Add some faux moss or river rocks, an air plant, and fill that shiz with shiny crystals!

Seriously. There is no way to go wrong with this. In just a few easy steps you can have a beautiful, unique piece of art that also serves a larger purpose!

Obsessed yet?

If you’re looking for some crystals or air plants, I’ve got both in my shop for the time being.

Thanks for reading and considering adopting some Tillandsia into your boho home!

Stunning! I received one of her gorgeous creations for Mother’s Day and I’m in love! (and it’s still alive – a big deal with me & plants!) I invite you to visit Evangeline at her blog, The Lunar Fae and The Lunar Fae shop to get more ideas and inspiration. Use code “DIYSHOWOFF” for 11% off order over $5!
