Plants are perfect roommates. They bring colour, life and warmth without too much expense or effort. They keep you company but don’t generate dishes or dirty socks. And they’re okay with almost any empty corner. Invite some plants into your home today – it might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
If you’re lucky enough to have a big balcony, terrace or garden, you can create a botanical haven with a combination of big and small plants. Place them high and low, planted in the ground or pots (or both), and always in corners. The less you can see of the walls, the better. Laying out a floor and adding cosy lighting creates the feeling of a room – a magical place to enjoy the sun, the rain, mornings, evenings or just a simple cup of tea.
