I recently picked up a book on houseplants titled Indoor Green: Living with Plants. I’ve always loved plants in my home and I’ve always wanted to create a special plant room in my home. This book is perfect for plant lovers! You can read my review below.
Indoor Green: Living with Plants by Bree Claffey is a book about plants and the people who keep them.
As soon as I opened the book I was instantly inspired. The book is full of fascinating photography of plants by Lauren Bamford. I truly enjoy observing how people can take a room and transform it into a garden living space. It’s so exhilarating.
The reader is taken to different homes to view the plants people keep and how they live with them. Interviews are conducted with each person. You learn where they live, what plants they own, what they do for a living, and their personal feelings about plants.
Many subjects are covered including different types of common houseplants, plant music, plant design, plant rooms and even plant care. Some plants discussed include: Devil’s Ivy, Boston Fern, and Ponytail Palms to name a few. My absolute favorite is the hanging air plant. There is a section included for plant care, although it’s not extensive and pertains mostly to the plant types discussed.
I personally loved this book and with the upcoming growing season underway, it’s just what I needed to get in the mood. If you admire plants, you’ll love this book.
