What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Start with the right base. Good drainage is essential for succulents. While most houseplants dislike soggy soil, succulents really hate it. Use a potting mix that is very fast-draining, preferably one designed for cactuses. Many experts recommend adding additional perlite to help with drainage.
4. Highlight the styles. Rustic, contemporary and traditional styles fill this home designed by Laguna Beach, California, architect Mark Singer, says Brittney Fischbeck, owner of Abodwell Interior Design. This room features a limestone wall along the stairs, white walls for displaying art, cozy pillows on the sofa and gray limestone flooring from Portugal.“I wanted to make the room more lively,” she says. “The live-edge table, with its warm colors and curves, offset the rest of the home very well.”
