Indoor Vines for Room Decor Ideas

1. Pothos


Botanical Name: Epipremnum aureum

This one is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance indoor superstar. With just a few hooks and angles, you can train them to cover walls and bookshelves, decorate mirrors, and even create rich live curtains with pothos.

2. Philodendron

Botanical Name: Philodendron

These glossy tropical vines adapt well to indoor environments and are perfect as vertical accents on walls. Their foliage features variegated leaves in the shape of hearts, triangles, and spears, appearing in dark green, yellow, orange, and even red.

These effortless growers prefer gentle sunlight and humidity but can be mildly toxic to humans and pets.

3. English Ivy


Botanical Name: Hedera helix

Just bring your invasive English Ivy vines inside your home and salvage its reputation! With delicate, pointy leaves that come in different patterns and hues, these evergreen climbers are perfect for hanging planters.

You can also train them with a trellis to enhance your room decor. While toxic when ingested, this plant is said to improve the air in your home.

4. Grape Ivy


Botanical Name: Cissus rhombifolia

This vigorous evergreen climber has gorgeous dark green, intricate foliage that would enrich and liven up any dull spot in your home in a heartbeat! Place it by the fireplace or let it cascade from baskets; whatever you do, this easy-to-care grape cousin will thrive in your home if it gets bright, indirect light and some humidity.

5. Kangaroo Vine


Botanical Name: Cissus antarctica

If you have a room with a massive screen door that opens to a large wall, cloak it with the Kangaroo Vine. This perennial climber does well even in low light but in semi-indoor conditions, for example, a porch or a balcony attached to your room.

Train its vines to take on a desired shape in any corner of your home, or simply hang them in baskets. But once you’ve set your decor mood with these vines, keep them in the same spot, as they don’t like being pushed around!

6. Pilea


Botanical Name: Pilea glauca

With lush, tiny grayish-blue leaves and striking red stems, this pilea cultivar looks especially magical in wicker baskets or when dangling down from shelves. Also known as silver sparkle, they may be hard to get your hands on, but once you do, they are excellent home decor and are really easy to care for.

7. Peperomia


Botanical Name: Peperomia prostrata ‘Pepperspot’

Do you know the best room decor that can uplift corners and windows? A basket full of a lush Peperomia spreading its beauty. These pet-friendly semi-succulents prefer mild, indirect light and gentle watering.

8. String of Nickels


Botanical Name: Dischidia nummularia

The string of nickels, as the name suggests, are succulent trailers with coin-shaped petite, glossy round leaves that dangle to perfection. Style your bookshelf or library with this succulent to create dense cascades of green.

9. Forest Cactus

Botanical Name: Lepismium bolivianum

Unlike its spiky brethren, this cactus has slender leaves that fall just like vines and enjoys shade. Place these danglers in a pot at a height in your home, and let them hang freely!

10. Climbing Senecio

Botanical Name: Senecio macroglossus

Flaunting waxy, triangular green leaves with creamy splotches just like English ivy, these evergreen climbers adapt to any given space, from walls and railings to hanging pots. In bloom time, they also produce daisy-like pale yellow flowers.

11. Inch Plant

Botanical Name: Tradescantia zebrina

If you’re looking for a colorful indoor vine to highlight parts of your home, go for the classic inch plant. Its purple leaves are adorned with green and silver markings, and the plant can easily grow to 6-8 feet.

12. Rex Begonia Vine


Botanical Name: Cissus javana

Rex Begonia vine isn’t actually a true Begonia, but it surely is stunning, with a combination of light and dark green in the foliage. You can use it as an accent plant and envelop wall art.

13. Black-Eyed Susan Vine


Botanical Name: Thunbergia alata

If you want a flowering vine that you can grow indoors (of course, the space should receive some sunlight) or on a shaded porch that won’t need much maintenance, the Black-eyed Susan is a wonderful option.

14. String of Pearls


Botanical Name: Senecio rowleyanus

There are several string succulents out there, but the String of Pearls is truly the number one. This succulent features trails of spherical, beady green leaves that look like pearls and produces cinnamon-scented daisy-like blooms in summer. Due to its trailing habit, you can grow in hanging planters and keep on top of shelves.

15. Wax Plant


Botanical Name: Hoya carnosa

Hoya plants are relatively easy to care for, making them a popular choice for beginner houseplant enthusiasts. You can hang them in pots or train them to grow around your furniture. For style dynamics, mix up varieties that possess straight leathery leaves with variegated ones.

16. Creeping Fig


Botanical Name: Ficus pumila

Creeping Figs have sparky dark green leaves with white and yellow edges, depending on the cultivar. Train them to trail along shelves or cabinets like creepers for the look of abundance, or simply let them fall down gracefully and enjoy in a pretty pot like the one above.

17. Arrowhead Plant


Botanical Name: Syngonium podophyllum

Syngoniums have leaves that look like an arrow’s head. Our preferred room decor hack is to place them on a slight height and train their glossy foliage to unfurl like a fountain. Being natural climbers, these fast-growers can quickly liven up a dull column, window sill, or mantle. While they can grow in low light, don’t expect them to be pothos and provide ample indirect sunlight.

18. Maidenhair Vine

Botanical Name: Muehlenbeckia

Maidenhair Vines have tiny, glossy leaves that help create the illusion of intricate curtains and drapes on any surface. Their bountiful form can be easily molded to make lush, shapely hanging baskets and detailed topiaries.

19. Teddy Bear Vine


Botanical Name: Cyanotis kewensis

Ace your home makeover with the fuzzy, chocolate-colored leaves and reddish-purple undersides of the teddy bear vine. An exciting hack is to let it grow from atop a ceramic bust, creating the illusion of an exotic headdress or trailing crown.

20. Jasmine

Botanical Name: Jasminum polyanthum

This vine has oval, glossy green leaves and dreamy pinkish-white flowers. Easily adaptable indoors, White Jasmine twines around trellises, fences, moss poles, and pretty much any support you give it but the only way to grow it inside–a sunny windowsill or a balcony.

21. Ferns


Botanical Name: Tracheophyta

How can we talk about room decor without our indispensable ferns? They’re not vines, but ferns are a great substitute, if not the perfect addition, for living decor. These ancient plants are easy to maintain with the right amounts of water and light. A bunch of these can make a great living plant chandelier as they cascade down with style.
