Technique #1: Utilize ceiling space!
Whether you utilize ceiling space by adding hanging plants, arranging plants on shelves, or creating a lofted plant sanctuary like the one shown here, plants are a great way to fill empty space rather than adding extra furniture that ultimately becomes clutter.
Technique #2: Plants in the bathroom?
I'm sure for many people, the idea of adding plants to their bathroom has likely never crossed their mind, so let me be the first to encourage it! Often times, bathrooms are the least exciting space in homes. Adding subtle plant features to a bathroom can promote a feeling luxury and serenity.
Technique #3: Size matters!
Incorporating an oversized plant into a space makes a statement. When doing this, you will want to pair the large plant with other smaller plants throughout the room to create balance. Large plants are also perfect for occupying that awkward barren corner that you may be tempted to fill unneeded furniture.
Technique #4: Pay attention to height variation throughout the room
Like any other type of styling, balance is key. The plants throughout the room should cause your eyes to wander, rather than simply being spread across all the tables in the space. If you are working with multiple plants for more of a jungle-vibe, keep in mind the rule of grouping in threes!
