Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise is one of the visually most powerful house plants. It’s perfect for homeowners who love green plants and plants that grow flowers.  And not just any type of flowers – these are probably some of the most interesting and beautiful flowers you
will ever see. These plants ooze luxury and unassuming taste.

Remember that the bird of paradise needs humidity and frequent exposure to the sun to grow, so make sure to enable this for it. Also, it requires more space than your ordinary house plant, but it’s worth it. Anyone who enters your home will be instantly amazed by its gorgeous dark leaves and stunning avian-looking flowers.

Peace Lily for Air Purification

If you value aesthetics and air quality, the Peace Lily is a fantastic addition to your luxury apartment. Its lush green foliage and striking white blooms complement modern interiors perfectly. What sets the Peace Lily apart is its exceptional air-purifying abilities. It effectively removes toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia from the air, ensuring a healthier living environment. Keep the soil moist and place it in moderate to low light conditions.

Jade Pothos Totem



Jade Pothos looks great in hanging flowerpots.

The jade pothos totem could be a perfect centerpiece for your luxurious living room with its lush, wild, exotic, and dramatic energy. Not only that it’s beautiful, but it’s also very easy to take care of. And, as it doesn’t take up much room, you can practically keep it anywhere. You can see below how lovely it looks in a hanging pot. Even if you need to organize a last-minute move and pack and relocate your entire living room, you’ll be happy to know that Jade Pothos is very resilient, and you’ll be able to transfer it in no time. With the help of experienced movers, every detail from your living room will be moved in the safest way possible.

Lavender for Aromatherapy

To infuse your luxury apartment with a soothing aroma, consider adding potted lavender. Lavender not only adds a pop of color with its purple blooms but also offers the calming benefits of aromatherapy. Place it in a sunny spot and let the soil dry out between watering. Gently brushing your hand against the foliage will release its delightful fragrance into your living space.

Common fig


If you thought fig trees only grow outside, you’d probably be surprised that the common fig is one of the best indoor plants for luxury apartments. In areas where figs can’t grow outside, they’re very common as indoor plants. When taking care of the common fig, remember that it needs to be watered two to three times a week, depending on the humidity in your area. Also, this plant requires medium to bright light. Not only that it look beautiful, but, in a way, this plant is also a living cultural artifact and
a great conversation starter. Its leaves are world-famous as they appear in the Biblical story of Adam and Eve. Namely, Adam’s intimates were obscured by the leaf of this plant. It’s a fascinating fact to share with your guests.

Orchids for Elegance and Fragrance

Orchids are renowned for their exquisite beauty and delicate fragrance, making them an ideal choice for luxury apartments. Their graceful, exotic blooms add a touch of sophistication to any room. While they may require a bit more attention than some other
plants, the reward of seeing their elegant flowers in full bloom is well worth the effort. Orchids thrive in bright, indirect light and require regular but light watering.

Chinese Fan Palm

If you decorated your home minimally, the Chinese fan palm is the perfect choice. With its intricate details and angular shape, it can add an energetic and exotic vibe to your home. The most interesting thing about this plant is its fan-like leaves and fountain-like growth pattern. Viewed from afar, it almost looks like a fountain with green water. Although it’s classified as a tree, it is small enough to be placed somewhere in your apartment when young. However, keep it exposed to daylight as it needs plenty to survive. If you don’t have enough space to enable this, it’s better to look for a different plant for your luxurious apartment.

Philodendron Cordatum

This elegant plant with lovely heart-shaped leaves is one of the most low-maintenance house plants. It doesn’t grow too big, and it doesn’t take up much space. However, keep in mind that it needs a lot of indirect light.


Everyone loves the gorgeous heart-shaped leaves of philodendron cordatum.

Your upscale apartment will look even more dashing with this plant, especially if you’ve chosen a contemporary design. As it’s very sleek and sophisticated, it can be a great addition to your minimalist kitchen.

Snake Plant for Low Maintenance

The Snake Plant, or Mother-in-Law's Tongue, is a low-maintenance yet stylish choice for luxury apartments. Its tall, stiff leaves with distinctive patterns add a modern flair to your decor. Snake plants are incredibly resilient and can thrive in various light conditions, from bright to low. They require minimal watering, making them an excellent choice for those with busy lifestyles.
