Indoor Green: Living with Plants by Bree Claffey is a book about plants and the people who keep them.

As soon as I opened the book I was instantly inspired. The book is full of fascinating photography of plants. I truly enjoy observing how people can take a room and transform it into a garden living space. It's so exhilarating.

The reader is taken to different homes to view the plants people keep and how they live with them. I

I saw Indoor Green: Living with Plants at my local library and didn’t hesitate to pick it up. I brought it home with me, fully expecting to fall in love, love, love…but it was actually kind of disappointing.

There are a ton of pictures of plants in this book, obviously, but the author’s main focus is actually the plant owners. Claffey devotes a lot of space to her interviews with each homeowner, most of them artists and designers living in Australia, Japan, and New York. The interviews are intere

Wanted to start the year right by reading this book beginning to end - it's been on my shelves for quite a while and I would only occasionally flick through the photos or read some pages or use it for reference. It's definitely a good idea to give it your full attention - it consists of many interviews of people living with plants, most often artists or designers, some interesting plant stories, and practical tips at the end. Full of gorgeous photography all throughout. What an indulging holiday ...more

2012 I acquire my first plant, a Dracaena.

2016 I learn the concept of propagation. I begin home experiments.

Present I sit here writing this review at home. My jungle home.

This is my confession. I am a plant hoarder.

I found Indoor Green while sifting through the shelves at my library. The summary on the back concludes, "houseplants are a way of life." Cringe-worthy for the plantless, maybe, but for me, the sweet tingle of resonance tickled my mind.

In Indoor Green, Claffey interviews plant enthus

Good for beginner indoor plant parents, this book is packed with useful care tips and descriptions to identify various species. Paired with insightful interviews with creatives who draw inspiration from plants, each sharing their personal philosophies on how natural greenery have informed their work and help create their own lush indoor spaces.

Enjoyed that this book featured more indoor plants than just the on-trend varieties, it was a bit text heavy though, and the photographs a bit too dark at times. In saying that, it was quite informative and an interesting read.

I really liked the plant portraits and wish there had have been more. However, the house plant tours were wonderfully photographed and very interesting also.
