Decorating with Plants

The most important trend in interior design in the last eight years has been decorating with plants. Whether persuing the latest home magazines, reading the most popular decorating books, or visiting friends, one discovers it is almost impossible to find a well-turned-out interior that is not enlivened by at least one tree or plant; and many of the rooms look like transplanted greenhouses. The houseplant craze has been acknowledged with the publication of dozens of books on selecting and growing plants indoors; but until Decorating with Plants, there has not been a single volume devoted to plants as important and functional decorative elements in a room.
Decorating with Plants is the first book on the subject that is all in color, showiing over 200 varieties of plants used in rooms by top architects, interior designers, House & Garden editors, and talented plant lovers.
Plants furnish rooms without being ponderous; play architectural roles as walls, dividers, and links between different levels; complement art; and are themselves living sculpture. Overly bright windows lose their glare with light filtering plants, and windows with bleak views become gardens. All the techniques are described and illustrated in Decorating with Plants by spectacularly beautiful rooms from both America and Europe. In a room-by-room guide Decorating with Plants shows how to use plants specifically in living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, halls and porches.
A unique feature is a plant tip on each page, including how-to basics. Clear captions make the houseplants in each photograph easy to identify. A thorough plant chart, in addition to providing botanical and common names and their pronunciations, lets you see at a glance each plant's light, water, and temperature requirements (in Celsius as well as Fahrenheit); whuch plants grow tall; and most imprtant, which are especially easy to grow.
Anyone interested in apartment or home gardening, architecture, or interior design will find Decorating with Plants not only a delight to browse through but also incomparably useful in choosing and arranging all varieties of indoor plants.
