Booklist Review

Cofounders of Melbourne plant-accessories shop Ivy Muse, Langan and Vidal believe that indoor plants are a stylist's best friend a relatively low-cost, versatile way to warm and soften any space. Their elegant (and cerebral-leaning) guide will encourage readers to agree with them, first by spending ample time considering their spaces and planning the plant looks that might fit best in them. With their stylists' eyes, the authors call out plants by their shape, texture, and color, and show how keeping these aspects in mind, along with more generic home-design principles scale, proportion, spacing can help create attractive groupings or vignettes in bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and smaller spaces. Particularly enlightening are pictures of the same space trying on different groups of plants and an index that lists plants with their water, light, and humidity needs. Readers wanting to bring home the sophisticated, botanical look of current design trends will find lots of help here.--Bostrom, Annie Copyright 2010 Booklist
