There is much more to interiors filled with plants than meets the eye. Plant arrangements can be seen as an inexpensive way to decorate a home, but in fact, the use of plants in an interior has benefits that are often overlooked. Plants add dimension to interiors and make them feel lively. They strengthen the connection with nature and reflect an appreciation of the botanical world. The presence of plants in a home counteracts the negative effects of city living by improving air quality and regulating temperature and humidity levels. Plants also seem to have positive effects on people's mood and health, reducing stress, promoting creativity and productivity, and increasing levels of wellbeing. The book includes interior design projects for residential spaces, such as apartments, single-family houses, penthouses, and lofts in urban and rural environments. It focuses on modern interiors, where plants are part of the design, giving the home an organic touch. From interior courtyards to small balconies and through simple but graceful arrangements of potted plants, the projects offer inspirational ideas to all those who want to fill their homes with plants and add more personality to their decor.
