"'Creative indoor planting' says it all. From small planters made from such found objects as teapots to suspended English ivy as 'living curtains,' integrating indoor plants with home decor can bring unique flair to interior-decorating schemes large and small. On a deeper level, using plants as part of the indoors creates more calming and natural surroundings and a way to stay more connected to nature. Organized by plant placement-on the walls and ledges, in the air, in the kitchen, and more-Heibel and de Give's guide provides technical information on DIY planters and holders, watering, and edible indoor plants, accompanied by creative encouragement. Dramatic color photos appear throughout, and the authors present a charming and amusing grid that matches plant types to personalities and lifestyles. For example, the Drama Queen goes big with large houseplants, such as dragon trees, while Design Geeks prefer Tillandsia air plants in their spotless homes. With a glossary and detailed index, this is boldly informative and energizing."
