Some people think that plants belong in the corner of a room. This is as if the person is projecting on the plant that it needs a nice cozy place to stay. I want to challenge that habit and suggest that plants can easily make cozy places for the human who so desperately needs them—so much so that they projected it onto their houseplant.
Let us take an example from restaurants. If you go out to observe cafes today you will see one common trend. The trend is that cafes with nooks and cranies which serve as cozy places are full while the cafes with large open areas or rows of chairs in straight lines are empty. If someone is in the row cafe, they will be sitting in a corner.
Some restaurants have gotten so good at this that they put partial window that are curved and low walls. I have even seen fireplaces that instantly convert into booth seating and then to a curled bench seat. The idea is not to actually separate people. The people can still hear each other and see each other. It only provides a barrier to help the brain concentrate and feel a bit protected.
Now, let us shift to plants. If you want to create a cozy place for yourself, you plants can help. Imagine that you need to make some sort of divider. You could put a cubicle wall and seem like an offshore call centre, or you could put a living curtain. A living curtain is basically a series of hanging pots full of beautiful hanging plants. You could hang these over a doorway to give a mystical entrance, you could hang them on a short wall, or you could hang them from the ceiling on a long braided steel cable (similar to the lights that hang down from high ceilings).
Check out this table to some easily accessible and excellent plants to make a living and cozy mood curtain.
