Indoor plants have without doubt been a trend over the last 4 - 5 years in interiors. We have certainly seen a revival of many of the 60's, 70's and even 80's style house plants.
Not only are indoor plants easier and much more cost effective than a constant supply of fresh flowers, they help purify the air.
Indoor plants remove many of the toxic fumes that our furniture, carpet, toys and building materials produce.
NASA completed a study to look at the best plants to clean the air, with the idea of taking them into space to improve the air for the astronauts. Here is a summary of what they found with the Peace Lilly & Chrysanthemum coming out on top by reducing all toxic agents such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and more from the air.
When it comes to placing indoor plants in your home you also need to think about what to put them in. Here comes the fun styling part of it!
There are many options now, pots, baskets, washable paper bags and even self watering pots.
