All of the sudden I am really into houseplants. Yeah, I know, being an interior designer, you think I would be into them ages ago. While I have always loved cut flowers and foliage, over the last few weeks houseplants have been taking the lead.
I have seen many great examples of plants in interiors over the last year, with Melbourne design firm, Hecker Guthrie being my main inspiration as they do plants extremely well, and I think this has helped me get over my silly association that house plants were a little.. well, naff.
Now my view has definitely changed and within two weeks I have three new houseplants inhabiting my home. There is something about having greenery inside that is just lovely.
