This book is a luxurious guide to creating the very densest of jungles in your living room. It’s time to finally turn that thumb green.
With this stunningly photographed greenery-guide, anyone can master the art of making a living room thrive. When done correctly, curating any decent houseplant can be just as effective as hanging a beautiful work of art. After all, our green companions are known to be beneficial for mental health, for general health (being oxygenators) as well as being a key element of any well-balanced interior fit-out.
Lauren and Sophia run the wildly successful nursery and interior design store Leaf Supply, in Sydney, Australia. They wrote a beautifully designed book, by the same name, in 2018. Now, with Indoor Jungle, they explain (in laypersons’ terms) how to best transform your house into a veritable greenhouse. In this sequel-of-sorts, Lauren and Sophia cast their plant-loving net far wider than simply fabulous Australian interiors, featuring jungle-y architecture from around the world!
For each spread of beautifully verdant interiors, the duo breaks down how the foliage within is surviving (and thriving). Ablaze with jaw-dropping photography, Indoor Jungle will deserve its own prominent place in your new, improved and jungle-ified living room.
For centuries, plants have transformed interiors. Today house plants are once again experiencing a revival. Author Bree Claffey of Mr Kitly journeys into the worlds of fellow plant lovers to explore the enduring attraction of house plants. From the ever-reliable peace lily and beguiling fiddle leaf fig to the elusive Chinese money plant, house plants are showcased in all their weird and wonderful forms. More than good-looking props, plants are living, growing, joyful things rooted in community and creativity and as this book celebrates, houseplants are a way of life.

About the Author

Originally published in 1970 This is Australia is a very retro look at Australia. The book walks you through each of the capital cities looking at the icons that have come to represent Australia, both natural and constructed. It's fun to see what Australia looked like 'all those years ago' and how Australia was 'seen'. Many things have changed since this book was first published but it's a charming retrospective and kids will be fascinated pouring over the detailed illustrations and facts about Australia.
Like the other Sasek classics, these are facsimile editions of his original books. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is . . . Today" page at the back of each book. The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek’s witty, playful narrative, make these books a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember them from their own childhood. In This is Australia, first published in 1970, Sasek swings down under, winging his readers into Sydney, with its famous bridge and space-age Opera House; bustling, modern Melbourne; colonial Adelaide; semitropical Brisbane; the garden city of Canberra; mineral-rich Perth; and Alice Springs, Australia’s most famous outback town.
..".his [Sasek] edition is just as stunning and plentiful as his previous books--stacked with fabulous observances on the life and scenes of [our] beautiful country. A must-have for Aussies and everyone else, too." Kids-Bookreview.com
"This is an outstanding book, full of facts and well illustrated. Younger children will be interested in the birds and animals. Others - including adults - may be interested in history, cities, and buildings." Douglas McWilliams, San Francisco Book Review

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
