Overview

A visual ode to the transformative power of the houseplant in home décor, with practical information for arranging your own indoor greenFor centuries, plants have transformed interiors. Today the plant-filled home is an inspiration to every avid shelter-blog reader or expert Pinterest-board maker. Author Bree Claffey journeys into the interior worlds of fellow plant lovers to explore the enduring attraction of houseplants. From the ever-reliable peace lily and beguiling fiddle leaf fig to the elusive Chinese money plant, Indoor Green makes it obvious that even the humblest greenery can transform a home.Houseplants encompass the art of decorative arrangement and add romance to any room. Within the pages of Indoor Green gorgeous photographs of interiors from across the globe, divided into chapters such as “Plant Music," “How to Grow Fresh Air," “Plant Portraits," and more, make the magic easy to replicate in one’s own home. Interviews of indoor green enthusiasts appear alongside the images, as well as tips on caring for plants and an index of plant varieties. More than good-looking props, plants are living, growing, joyful things rooted in community and creativity, and are easy to introduce into any home and lifestyle.

Melbourne-based horticulturist Claffey opens novice and expert gardeners up to a practice of indoor gardening that is an exercise in understanding elements of interior design and in mastering “botanical precision.” Influenced strongly by interior planting schemes she encountered while visiting Japan, the author integrates a strong element of the artistic power of having plants in one’s living space, not only for the beauty of it but also for the tranquility and reflection—maybe even contemplation—that naturally arise as a result. The goal is to create “verdant interior scenes.” Color photographs accompany the chapters, which tour the homes and work spaces of an eclectic mix of international indoor gardeners alongside insightful interviews, highlighting the gardeners’ techniques and hints for cultivation as well as how they approach the key elements of indoor gardening: design, lighting, plant density, care. This enlivening exploration will inspire even the most timid of indoor plant lovers, providing a fresh look at an affordable type of gardening that both beautifies a home and expands the soul.
