Discover natural ways to create a stylish home with the ultimate living accessory for interiors. In Hip Houseplants, Orlando Hamilton transforms the Cinderella reputation of indoor plants, demonstrating how their chic shapes and living color can complement every stylish interior. The Ultimate Design Accessory: Discover serenely scented plants for bedrooms, scene-stealers for grand entrance halls, and even "desktop ionizers" for home offices. Orlando shows how there is an auspicious plant for every part of the home, including steamy bathrooms and tiny kitchens. He also explains how to match plants to every type of decor. In vivid and inspiring photographs, he presents, for example, elegant palms as an integral part of a sumptuous Moroccan room, and porcelain-delicate orchids as a sublime touch in an Asian Fusion-style setting. Stylish Containers Lit to Perfection: The right container provides the perfect link between a plant and its surroundings. Wooden containers, lacquered bowls, and even kitchen colanders are pressed into service with stunning results. Orlando shows how to use pebbles, stones, and moss as trims and how to highlight plants with dramatic halogen and fiber-optic lighting. With advice on plant care and a useful resource section, Hip Houseplants has everything you need to enhance your interiors with the ultimate in stylish greenery.
