Center Yourself This September With Plants

When stress levels begin to rise and everything can feel out of balance, find a way to center yourself in small ways that restore and refresh. Surrounding yourself with beautiful natural foliage is a great way to connect with nature, breathe some fresh air and gaze on calming colors and textures. Incorporate a dish garden or blooming plant into your office or work space for a restorative balance that will leave you feeling refreshed and whole. Since plants give off oxygen and take in carbon dioxide, they purify the air and provide you with healthy fresh air in return. St. Louis florist Walter Knoll Florist suggests taking a few minutes to engage in meditation and deep breathing exercises near your favorite plant when things get stressful.

When you include white in your home or office decor, you bring a freshness to the space like no other. While white has traditionally been a summer-only color, we offer an alternative to this idea. Much like the trend in the fashion industry of ignoring the “no white after Labor Day” rule, we admire the bold and modern look of white decor all year round. Whether you go all out with white furniture and carpeting, or simply add white accents to make a room sizzle for a season, white has a major effect on your look. Clean lines and unusual textures emerge when you use white in your decorating.

If you have a thriving garden, be sure to include bee-friendly options like daisies, irises, roses and lavender to attract bees and give them a safe place to work. Bees need fresh water to stay hydrated and some shade for hot days- providing both of these elements in your garden is a recipe for a successful bee culture in your yard.
