Revealed: Joanna Gaines’ laundry room plant trend

Joanna Gaines may be known as a force in the decorating industry, but her most recent movement also combines interiors with biophilia.

The Magnolia designer shared a look inside her laundry room — mainly with the table and chair that crowned the space as one of her favorite spaces in her home. While we admire her furniture – it was her organic laundry room ideas that caught our immediate attention.

In her laundry room (photo above and below) is the Fixer upper star displayed hanging ivy that falls from her industrial-style light and crowns her beloved table. And while this quirk is undeniably aesthetic, it has a range of other benefits for you and this practical space. Here’s what the experts think about Joanna Gaines’ rise plant tendency.

‘It seems that no matter what’s going on out there, how loud the world gets, I can always come back to the familiar silence in here: the swing of the washing, the hum of the dryer, the stacks that are resting the floor is loosened. ,’ says Joanna on Instagram (opens in new tab). ‘The swoosh of the laundry, the hum of the dryer, the stacks that have been loosened at rest on the floor. There is something about the ordinary, the profound absence of achievement in this space, that allows me to be my true self.’

Joanna Gaines explains that she visits her laundry room to journal, solve a problem, say a prayer or work through her thoughts. It is also where she wrote her new book, The stories we tell (which is available here on Amazon (opens in new tab).) ‘Feel grateful today for this space and what it helped shape,’ she adds.

The designer explains how she derived joy from her decorating ideas, such as her table and chairs. However, plant experts suggest that her hanging ivy also contributes to the peace of her space.

The benefit of hanging ivy – in a laundry room – and elsewhere

“Ivy can be an excellent choice for a laundry room as these plants can survive almost anywhere,” says Kevi Tara, a plant expert at LeafNJoy (opens in new tab). But aside from Joanna Gaines’ approval – what makes ivy one of the best indoor plants to choose for your laundry room?

“Their dark-shaded green leaves bring a touch of peace and calm, but at the same time, the forest green variations carry a notch of seriousness and structure – which lines up well with a busy laundry room,” explains Kevi.

‘However, ivy plants are rarely just a simple shade of green. Most of the specimens have conspicuous white venation or other types of variegation. These colorful plays on the leaves, on the other hand, can brighten even the darkest color and bring cheerful energy.’

In addition to its aesthetic, ivy is one of the best air-purifying indoor plants you can choose. “They are known to absorb toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde and even mold and mildew in the air,” adds Kevi. It’s also particularly low maintenance – meaning you can replicate Joanna’s utility room ideas without inconvenience.

“Ivy is a good choice for those looking for a unique plant that makes a sharper statement of wildness and character, and the calm pothos just isn’t suitable,” adds the expert. We follow Joanna’s example at the first opportunity,
