DIY Terrarium with mini orchid

Just a little more wait, and spring will be upon us. Can’t wait any longer? Bring spring into your home! For example, with this terrarium with a mini orchid. It’s very easy to make on your own, yet it looks spectacular. And with the colourful hues, you’ll surely get a bit of spring fever! Read on to find out what you need and how to get started.

DIY Terrarium with mini orchid

Necessities

To create a terrarium with a mini orchid, you’ll need the following:

  • Large glass jar
  • Hydrogranules
  • Bark potting soil
  • Mini orchid
  • Other small green plants of your choice
  • Moss

Instructions

Got everything you need? Then let’s get started! Start with a layer of hydrogranules at the bottom of the glass jar. This ensures proper water management. The granules absorb moisture and release it gradually, allowing the plants to receive the right amount of water over an extended period. On top of this, add a layer of bark potting soil. This type of soil is specifically developed for orchids and is much lighter than regular potting soil. Next, it’s time to plant the mini orchid and green plants. Place the mini orchid in the centre as the focal point, with the green plants surrounding it. Finally, distribute some moss over the soil.

How to incorporate orchids according to the latest interior trends

Trend colour: Sweet Embrace

The trend colour we’ll be seeing a lot of next year is Sweet Embrace. Dulux has declared this as the Colour of the Year 2024. It’s a gentle blossom pink that is welcoming and brings a sense of peace and softness to a space. An easy way to add this colour to your interior is through orchids. This allows you to introduce a pop of colour, without immediately painting an entire wall in this shade.

Trend: Curved Lines

The Curved Lines trend revolves around round shapes. Think of the round and oval dining tables that we saw a lot of in 2023. In 2024, we’re taking it a step further with even more organic shapes. Imagine a table with a top in various winding forms that seamlessly flow into the legs. Or a curved sofa, a rug in shapes other than straight lines, or start small with a plant pot in organic forms, housing an orchid in a natural hue.

Trend: Soft Seventies

The Soft Seventies trend takes us back to the Seventies, a vibrant decade where fabrics and patterns were all about going wild. In 2024, we leave behind the busy prints and instead embrace velvet fabrics, vertical wooden slats, large and comfortable furniture pieces, and funky shapes that add a twist to your interior. The colour palette consists of greens like olive, shades of purple, and caramel. A colour combination that you can easily bring into your home with orchids!

Dulux Colour of the Year 2024

The name of the Dulux Colour of the Year 2024 gives it away: Sweet Embrace is a sweet and warm colour. Inspired by the softness of feathers and the subtlety of evening clouds. It’s a delicate shade that changes tone with the light but that always brings warmth to a space. Sweet Embrace is versatile in interior applications, especially because the colour is not too pink.

Sweet Embrace in the interior

Around the Colour of the Year, palettes have been created with colours that are easy to apply and reflect various trends. The colour palettes represent three trends: the quest for belonging, the quest for tranquillity, and the quest for joy.

 

An uplifting colour story

Mixing ethereal and dreamy tones of ochre and soft lilac, this palette has a contemporary, uplifting mood. Its mix of shades provides great opportunities for dynamic colour combinations that can enliven a scheme and bring energy and positivity.

 

 

A warm colour story

Warm, natural shades of sand, soil and terracotta – this family of global earth tones can help create spaces that feel familiar and embracing. These colours are ideal for layering to create a warm, comforting backdrop, and they work particularly well in living rooms or places where people want to come together, connect with family and friends and feel relaxed.

A calm colour story

Recalling the colours of woodlands and seascapes, these soft greens and blues have a naturally calming and clarifying effect. This palette works perfectly with natural materials such as wood, cork and wool. Mixing darker shades with lighter neutrals, this is a balanced palette that can bring a feeling of simplicity and serenity.
