Sun-drenched houseplants liven up the far wall in the living room. Mociun has had this armchair since college. Until she gets a chance to reupholster the piece, it will stay covered in a Moroccan rag rug — which she sells in her store.

20. Get in the habit of saving leftover water and dropped ice cubes for houseplants. Even small acts, like plunking dropped ice cubes and half-drunk glasses of water into a watering can rather than down the sink can add up to water savings. But even more than the water you will save, it's the habit that is important — this small act will serve as a reminder to be more mindful of water, our most precious resource.Tell us: What is your favorite way to save water around the house?
Laura Gaskill added this to Indoor Winter Gardens for Cheerier Days
Group plants together. A group of plants looks cheery on a winter’s day, but it does more than lift spirits — plants grouped together stay healthier and dry out less often than those kept apart. Try lining a windowsill with potted plants, set up a plant stand or group several small pots on a tray filled with gravel.

3. Think small. While a large, striking feature pot looks outstanding in a home, don’t discount smaller pots. Smaller containers can be easily swapped out, given a spell outside or moved around the home. A collection of succulents like this is a low-maintenance but high-impact way to use plants inside.

Alternatively, take the more is more approach, but use a single piece of furniture, such as a low bench or shelf, to organize your potted plant display. Tuck this under a sunny window and watch your plants thrive.
