When Kylee Baumle and Jenny Peterson asked me to be part of the Indoor Plant Décor Virtual Blog Tour and contest give-away I was SO excited. Kylee and Jenny are long time garden writer friends who also happen to have two of the kick-assiest garden blogs in existence:
Kylee’s awesome garden life blog – Our Little Acre
Jenny’s great design blog – J Peterson Garden Design
Reading their book was fabulous because I am mainly an outdoor gardener and have virtually no experience or knowledge of houseplants and indoor urban planting design. If it does not involve a pallet, a weird vertical wall design, stacked containers, or wine bottles I’m lost like a blind mouse in a fairy tale. I like to call myself a “Houseplant Idiot”. No seriously – I need help.
In step authors Kylee and Jenny to save the day with great ideas. These two ladies are indoor planting super heroes who are helping save me from a dreadful houseplant disaster. Always a relief. Indoor Plant Décor, The Design Stylebook for Houseplants is exactly what it sounds like and more; a fantastic full-color book filled with astoundingly cool ideas for nifty indoor plants. For those of you who have tired of a single cactus or boring spider plants, these houseplant gurus suggest over 136 pages of magnificently creative ideas.
There are step-by-step container garden crafts, eight cool decor style chapters, with tips and hundreds of eye-goggling design photos (see a few of them on this page) to make gardener and designer alike drool with envy. This book is filled with both Kylee and Jenny’s imaginative choices. They dare readers to build a Japanese Moss ball and try their hand at planting a container necklace, giving full instructions for several planting techniques. This lovely and artistic book is an imaginative guide bringing a better understanding of the delights of the garden indoors.
