The reception area of a hotel is the first point of contact, and as such somewhere that should be welcoming and relaxing. Having walked through the entrance, guests should be greeted by decor and atmosphere that makes them relax, knowing they have chosen the right hotel. As with the exterior and entrance to the building, the reception is a point of first impression and another way to show people who you are. Select the right deco elements to make this space complete - and include plants!
It sometimes feels like we are in a world where every new trend has the word ‘core’ added. What started with Cottage-core has swiftly grown into Witch-core, Angel-core, Princess-core, Barbie-core, and even Norm-core! This new way of naming trends may seem too much, but the aesthetics behind them do have followings, and if flowers and home decor (see what we did there!) are your thing, one or two are worth checking out.

Let’s take a look at the different ways available, and those to avoid.
Filling a house with beautiful plants can turn it into a home and make the working environment a more pleasant place to be. Doing so can require a lot of maintenance you may not have time for, and what if the space isn’t right for keeping plants healthy? Opting for artificial plants may be the answer. Contemporary artificial plants look very realistic and often have real-touch leaves, so it’s not necessarily a compromise. With some careful dressing, ensuring these plants look as good as the real thing is quick and easy. It doesn’t have to be one or the other either, mixing in one or two lower-maintenance live plants can enhance the realism of the display.
