plants to add dimension and warmth.
Decorating with plants takes more strategy than adding a pretty pot to a coffee

issues for guests and buyers.
• Mix and Match – Choose a variety of colors, heights, and textures.
• Showcase Home Features – Bight plants will attract attention. Consider a
tall plant to showcase the ceiling height or a bright bloom to draw the
buyer’s attention to a great view.
