I've started to notice that the pins I'm drawn to most on my Pinterest interiors board are the ones with a little flash of green in them. With that in mind, I spent a bit of time perusing the lush green aisles to find a few plants to bring a little green into our home.
My favourite purchase is the slightly mad fern in the picture above, which reminds me of Sideshow Bob. I found a sunny spot for it on a windowsill and it makes me smile every time I walk into the kitchen. And of course, how could you not smile when confronted with a row of cacti in the loo - particularly when one happens to be the perfect pair of bunny ears you've been searching everywhere for!
Indoor plants were never really my thing (or outdoor ones for that matter! Our windy balcony is proving an inhospitable garden), but now I've seen how much texture and depth they can bring to a room, I think they are the finishing touch I was looking for all along. Now I'm in the swing of it, I'm on the hunt for something easy to brighten up our dingy hallway - any suggestions?
