Brighten Up! 10 Ideas to Add Green to Your Space for the New Year

Now that the Christmas tree is all packed up for another year, I’m longing for more green.  I was thinking of picking up a new fig tree from Home Depot this week and a few bulbs perhaps.  Thinking of those, I found a few images for inspiration.  A few bulbs in mason jars, a faux terrarium, a collection of plants on a pallet.  (Above image from Terrain). Here are 10 ideas to add some green to your space for the new year.
