Talk about maintenance free! Sometimes you don’t have to be so literal.  Print out some pretty looking pictures of plants from the web, check out a shop on Etsy for some prints or hop on to one of my fave home decor poster sites, allposters.com for something green.  Then frame it and hang.  Easy!

Now artwork isn’t the only way to get some plants into your home.  Try a nature inspired look with some throw pillows, picture frames or even an area rug that either has a plant print or comes in a green color for a quick nature fix.  

It is possible to have that nature vibe in your spot without having to deal with watering and talking to plants (I’ve heard that it really works! perhaps I should’ve tried it and could’ve saved a plant or two!)  Oh well…
