With more and more people (5.9 million-plus) working from home or retiring from the workforce (10,000 new baby boomers retiring every day) the quality of the home environment is becoming more important than ever. Jenny and Kylee know that adding living plants to the decor pays off in enjoyment, pride of place, and an increased sense of well being (not to mention lower blood pressure, higher creativity and cleaner air quality). House stagers and decorators know that well placed plants add value to a home. In Indoor Plant Decor, the authors show how to design with plants and containers to enhance one’s personal style. The book is divided into 8 style categories, like “Peaceful Zen,” “Classic Elegance,” Modern Eclectic,” and “Vintage Vibe” – with photo collages of style elements, easy DIY projects, plant and container selection, and care tips for all environments and seasons. Full-color photos throughout.
