Synopsis

At Home with Plants by Ian Drummond, Kara O'Reilly

Get inspired to give your home a natural make-over with this stunning book from award-winning interior landscape designer Ian Drummond and interiors editor Kara O'Reilly. Houseplants are hot, and creative interior planting is becoming increasingly easy to achieve. The new wave of unusual and dramatic indoor plants is as much about decor and statement as greenery. Used aesthetically, as a focal point and sculptural element in interior design, indoor gardening is not just about possessing or growing a plant, but about using it as an accessory combined with other objects to create a particular style and mood.

Reviews

Great ideas on how to use house plants. * Grazia * A stylish addition to the current craze for indoor greenery, this is as much about how you use plants as an integral part of contemporary decor as how to keep them alive and well. * The Sunday Times *
