Build a Garden at the Foot of Your Bed
As a Southern California girl, I like the inside of my home to mirror as much as the outside as possible. When I moved to MN, I put a huge outdoor fountain in my entryway and hung a sizeable Tuscan chandelier over it. I brought the succulents inside in the wintertime filling the large bowl with them. Succulents and the live dieffenbachia and sansevieria can live under low light conditions. I suggest you mix in fake leafy plants to add a variety of scale and texture. Live plants should be in pots on stands so that when you water them, (1/4 c per week is all they need) you won't ruin your floors. The plants linked below, when combined, would make a zenful foot of the bed garden.
