Want to work magic in a room? Add plants and flowers. They can bring drama and accent to a hard-edged modern decor or emphasize the charm of more traditional looks. They're also an inexpensive way to fill in empty walls and corners.

Use indoor flora to complete a color scheme, complement a design or add a fragrance. A leafy plant adds texture and interest to an area. If your furnishings are low-slung, a tall plant can give your room height. Flowers, whether fresh, silk or dried, add a splash of color and can draw attention to special areas or pieces of furniture. Try placing flowers in unexpected places--the master bath, home office or on a stair landing.
