Inconspicuous blooms, succulents, and cacti are the new ‘in thing” in indoor plants. It’s all about simplicity, geometric shapes, and having a little fun—shown by stunning example in these 14 inspiring Instagram photos.
If fashion and beauty have their trends, then it’s only right that this should extend into our homes too, right down to the plants and florals we choose. If you want to bring a little of Mother Nature indoors, then this season’s favorites are all about the more inconspicuous blooms, succulents, and cacti lending to simple and geometric shapes. Always on the lookout for something new and elegant, savvy decorators are seeking new horizons, exploring walls and ceilings, creating vertical gardens or even upside-down hanging plants (apparently it’s the way to display orchids right now).
This doesn’t mean you have to toss your beloved vase of roses, of course, but it’s good to try new looks. Who knows, perhaps you’ll get inspired and create your very first mini-garden!
Bold & artistic
Bold interiors require equally bold flowers that won’t get lost in the multitude of shapes, colors, and textures. A bunch of big sunflowers fits beautifully between a geometric mirror and colorful XL prints.
Mini wall garden
This tiny wall garden will fit into every, and we mean literally every interior. You don’t even need a shelf, just some wall space.
Wild & carefree
Wildflowers add an unexpected note to a bouquet. Scatter a handful of seeds in your garden or experiment with window boxes if you’re a city-dweller.
A new way to display the classic orchid. One upside-down pot will look intriguing at the kitchen window, but a few grouped together will look just stunning anywhere.
A unified collection
Show off your vase collection with a bunch of fresh-cut blooms. If the vase shapes differ greatly, go for one color—either in the vases or the flowers—to create visual unity.
Simple, sculptural & minimalist

To match the simplicity of Scandinavian-style interiors, use equally minimalist plants (and pots). A few sculptural cacti will be just perfect.
A vertical arrangement
A vertical garden is a modern alternative to traditional flower arrangements—it’s equally impressive, but it lasts longer. You can pick your size, shape, and plants and create your own unique living wall art.
Boho mix & match
A mix of handmade macrame pot hangers, simple baskets, and ceramic pots will soften industrial style interiors or blend into shabby-chic surroundings.
Not sure you can keep a plant alive? Go for an oversized botanical wallpaper. It will feel like living in a botanical garden … but no need to water the plants.
Back to nature
This plant collection may look chaotic at first, but don’t be fooled—it’s as carefully curated as an art collection. Different tones of green and shapes of leaves complement each other beautifully. We just can’t stop admiring how they help create a soothing organic space … in a bathroom!

A bright bloom
Sometimes three peonies are enough to create a spectacular display. The secret is to use a vivid, contrasting color in an otherwise monochromatic interior.
Complex but balanced bouquets
This room holds some very special memories and I absolutely had to take a shot before the sun went down this afternoon. Exactly 2 years ago to the hour I went into labour while Shaun and I watched Breaking Bad. I continued to labour between this room and the shower until we went to hospital where we had our incredible little Chet the next day. Tomorrow he turns two. Everyday I thank my lucky stars that I have him in our lives and it has been an overwhelming joy watching him grow into a crazy, curly haired little gentleman. Okay so I can't even type anymore because my eyes are filled with happy tears reliving the last 2 fulfilling years. Goodnight all 🙈💖 •blooms by the incredible @floralstate •
Modern flower arrangements, when complex but balanced, resemble those from Renaissance paintings. If you’ve always been a fan of mono bouquets, it’s time to step out of your flower comfort zone and give it a try.
