Let nature enter your home!

If you do not go out to enjoy nature, let her enter your home. The recommendation is from Marieyra Espinosa, engineer and interior designer, who understands that this is the best option for those who live in the city amidst so much concrete, and in a place where there are no outdoor areas.

“A small garden can be created in any part of the house, because no matter the space, the plants will always offer the possibility of enjoying that indescribable feeling of peace and well-being that only they provide”, says the expert.

Espinosa will be pleased to see how over the years people have become aware of green. Hence his exhortation to open a “little hole” in his home to honor the environment.

“This trend has taken a great boom in home design, because today’s world, after the pandemic, with well-being trends and modernism has changed their way of life and lifestyle.”


For the professional, the culture that is developing in search of the integration of people with their environment through simplicity and order is of great importance, promoting wide, open, clear spaces and allowing nature to be the protagonist. In this way, relaxed environments are created with multiple health benefits such as stress reduction, anxiety, as well as cleaning the environment.

From their point of view, it is possible to have the garden of your dreams, even if you have little space and little lighting. You should only focus on finding the right type of plants for the environmental conditions of your house or apartment.

“You can have anything from a bonsai to a large tree in your home. Vertical gardens are in fashion for places with little space, aromatic gardens such as orchards, (mint, basil, among others) ”, says Espinosa.

It highlights that there are also greenhouse-type gardens and those that adapt to the need for light and humidity, says Espinosa, Suconsar executive.

The expert maintains that the needs in the use of each space must be taken into account, in order to determine what type of plants fits with the environment to be designed.

Space (place), environment (temperature, humidity), lighting, plant style, care and maintenance are basic aspects.


Cactus: low maintenance, close to light

Dracena: does not require much sun or space

Ferns: to hang, they need light

Potos: hanging and near light

Aspidistra: requires shade and little watering
