Bedrooms are our personal space to relax, recharge, and decompress. Over the past year, they have also become our workspace, recreation space, and so much more. We think it’s time for an easy upgrade.

Adding plants is a quick way to liven up any room. Plants are beautiful, but also serve as natural air purifiers and provide many health benefits, including better sleep. Whether your room is small, large, bright, or dark, there is a plant for you. These are our top 5 picks!


Snake Plant

  • Low maintenance and resilient
  • Require little water & indirect sunlight
  • Purify the air
  • Snake Plants are the ideal indoor plant. They have upright sword-like leaves with yellow edges and come in a variety of sizes. These plants are also known to remove pollutants from the air, making it fresher and easier to breathe. Your allergies will thank you.

    Native to dry habitats, this plant looks great surrounded by warm taupes and grays. Set it on your nightstand next to our Fiji Tissue Holder and Tray to complete the look.

    Succulents

  • Highly adaptable
  • Brighten the room
  • No green thumb needed
  • Succulents have become increasingly popular over the years, and with good reason. With so many varieties, you are bound to find a succulent that matches your space. Each succulent has its own healing properties. Aloe, for instance, is great for burns. Succulents also improve the humidity in your room, preventing colds, dry skin, and coughing.

    These plants thrive in direct light, so well lit rooms with big windows are best. Throw on our Peshtemal Robe and and transport yourself to a desert resort in Palm Springs.



    Monstera

  • Require little water & indirect sunlight
  • Many varieties
  • The Monstera, or Swiss Cheese Plant, is a tropical plant know for the natural holes in its leaves. These plants are best kept in indirect sunlight, since too much sun can turn their leaves brown, and require little water. Monstera are popular home plants because of their unique, modern look. Their shiny, polished leaves and architectural shapes are the perfect finishing touch to any room.

    The tropical vibes will have you aching for the beach. Pair with anything from our Beachy Blues collection to really get you in the mood.

    Lavender

  • Smells and looks good
  • Many healing properties
  • Improves sleep
  • Not just a plant, Lavender has taken over the world in many forms because of its delicious smell and incredible properties. Add it to your bedside for a subtle pop of color. Lavender plants are commonly used in aromatherapy and serve as natural bug repellants and deodorizers. They are great for your skin, reduce stress, and improve overall sleep. Put on our cozy Hotel Spa Robe, listen to your chillest playlist on replay, and let the Lavender work its magic.
