Now Trending - Greeninspiration

One of the trends that are (thankfully) reappeared in interior design lately is a great comeback of greenery. With the increasing need to reconnect with the planet on which we live and with desire to save it from ourselves, even the way we thing about creating our living space has not been immune to this idea. Lately, greenery is a "must have" in modern and well designed homes. Breath of freshness in lovely pots, terrariums, hanging baskets, etc.
We all remember our grandma homes where presence of plants was unavoidable. Vines hanging on the walls, violets adorning the windowsill, tall ficus proudly decorating the corners... Retro is back "in", bringing some good, almost forgotten, ideas redesigned to fit into the modern interiors. 
Nature is an eternal source of inspiration. It is enough to look into any flower or harmonious combination of vessels on the leaf, and we instantly realize that the beauty of nature has no replacement in what man has created.
This beautiful fern is the latest addition in my living room. Besides being very decorative, ferns produce oxygen and purify the air. Nasa research experts found that one or two pots of ferns in just 24 hours almost completely purify the room air of all toxic substances. 
Besides that, her lush waterfall sheet fits both contemporary and traditional decor. It grows well in a pot and hanging baskets. They just  need  lots of water and the high humidity.
This plant is often, in the past, played a major role in many myths and beliefs. The Slovenian culture was believed that fern bloom once a year and that, whoever filled almost impossible mission and found this flower, will be happy and rich all his life. Similarly, great great fathers of today`s Finns believed that whoever finds a fern seed in the flower can undetected travel to treasure hid by fairies. 
Today we don`t need myths to understand the importance of nature, and to see that even a little bit of green in our home is so beneficial to us. That little part of nature in a pot gives us constant inspiration to pay more attention to the planet that gives us life.


Jedan od trendova koji se (na sreću) pojavio u dizajnu enterijera je i veliki "comeback" zelenila. Uz sve veću potrebu da se ponovo povežemo sa planetom na kojoj živimo i da je sačuvamo od nas samih, koji je konstantno uništavamo, ni način na koji osmišljamo životni prostor nije ostao imun na ovu ideju. Sve češće sa kao "mast have" u modernim i dobor dizajniranim domovima može videti prisustvo svežih biljaka u saksijama, terarijumima, visećim korpama itd.
Svi se sećamo domova naših baka u kojima je prisustvo biljaka bilo nezaobilazno. Lozice su visile preko zidova, ljubičice krasile prozore, visoki fikusi ponosno zauzimali uglove... Retro je ponovo "in" i vraćamo se polako, ali sigurno nekim dobrim, skoro zaboravljenim idejama, redizajniranim da se uklapaju u moderne enterijere.
Priroda je nepresušni izvor inspiracije. Dovoljno je da se zagledamo u bilo koji cvet ili skladni splet žilica na listu, pa da shvatimo da lepota prirode nema zamenu u onome što je čovek stvorio. 
Ova predivna paprat je najnoviji dodatak mog dnevnog boravka. Osim što je izuzetno dekorativna, paprat proizvodi kiseonik i prečišćava vazduh. Istraživanje stručnjaka Nase pokazalo je da jedna ili dve saksije sa papratima za samo 24 sata skoro potpuno prečiste sobni vazduh od svih otrovnih sastojaka.
Pored toga, njezin raskošni slap listova dobro se uklapa podjednako i u savremeni i u tradicionalni dekor. Raste dobro i u saksiji i u visećim korpama, pod uslovom da uvek bude dobro zalivena i da vlažnost vazduha bude velika.
Ova biljka često je, u prošlosti, igrala glavnu ulogu u brojnim mitovima i verovanjima. U slovenskoj kulturi se verovalo da paprat cveta jednom godišnje, a da će onaj ko ispuni gotovo nemoguću misiju i pronađe ovaj cvet biti srećan i bogat čitavog života. Slično tome, preci današnjih Finaca verovali su da će onaj ko pronađe seme paprati u cvetu neopažen putovati do blaga koje su sakrile vile.
Danas nam nisu potrebni mitovi da bismo bili svesni koliko jedan mali delić prirode u domu blagotvorno deluje na nas i inspiriše nas svakodnevno da više pazimo na planetu koja nam daje život.
