The Victorians suffered from 'fern madness'; the 1970s was the age of the macramé plant hanger; the Japanese believe that where there are plants, life energy flows well. For centuries and across cultures, plants have transformed interiors. Today houseplants are once again experiencing a revival. Bree Claffey of renowned Australian emporium Mr Kitly journeys in the worlds of her plant-loving friends to share their joy-inducing, plant-filled spaces. This is more than a gardening book: this is an inspirational look at life with plants. From the ever-reliable Peace lily and beguiling Fiddle leaf fig to the elusive Chinese money plant, houseplants are showcased in all their weird and wonderful forms. More than good-looking props, plants are living growing things rooted in community and creativity. As this book celebrates, houseplants are not a passing trend - they are a way of life.
