During the pandemic, many of us took up gardening and doubled (even tripled) the number of plants in our homes. If you haven’t jumped on the plant bandwagon, there are plenty of ways to incorporate florals and foliage into your home decor. Embrace the trend by adding botanical-inspired items — prints, throws, wallpaper — to your favorite rooms.
