Fresh flowers are great – everyone loves receiving them. But inevitably they’re already on the way out the door (and into the bin!) by the time they arrive. Plants – living, breathing, life sustaining plants – are where it’s at! Sydney-based authors Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan really want you to fall in love with indoor gardening and growing as much as they do. Leaf Supply profiles and provides comprehensive (but easy to follow) care instructions for 100 houseplants – including tropical plants, palms, hanging plants, succulents, cacti, and more unusual varieties such as airplants and carnivorous plants – ensuring you learn and grow as your plant grows.
But much more than a plant guide, Leaf Supply also gives interior styling advice on choosing the rights pots for your plants – both aesthetically and practically – as well as best utilising your space, and making the most of your indoor greenery, as well as advice on pet-friendly (as well as harmful) plants for your home. The book also profiles 10 tastemakers from creative fields who have integrated indoor greenery into their homes and workplaces – to give the reader a real insight into how plants can be used in everyday life.
This is a comprehensive guide for any budding greenthumb interested in greening their apartment or inside their home
A celebration of both sustainability and design, this book presents beautiful interiors filled with salvaged, recycled, and repurposed objects from around the world.
Artful home interiors are born from curiosity, creativity, and imagination, yet many of us fail to see a potential curtain rod in a bamboo stick or a kitchen counter in an old carpenter’s bench.
Anyone can create a beautiful home without expensive store-bought pieces simply by foraging and salvaging. Discarded objects can be restored, recycled, or repurposed to fill any space with style. Presenting the techniques and philosophies―such as beachcombing, forest hunting, and urban salvaging―of savvy foragers from across the globe, this book showcases how they created comfortable and stylish homes by breathing new life into what most would consider waste.
In an era when sustainability, living off the grid, and reducing our eco-footprint have never been more important or appealing, The Foraged Home will provide guidance and inspiration to those looking to go beyond the world of mass-produced products.300 color illustrations
