IT’S easy to see why in­door plants are one of the big­gest in­te­rior de­sign trends of the mo­ment.

In­ject­ing a space, be it work or home, with lush green fo­liage is one of the eas­i­est and most pru­dent ways to cre­ate in­ter­est and make an area feel more wel­com­ing.

And, as Morag Bar­ron and Rosie Ainslie from Lit­tle Leaf Co in Boor­a­goon say, plants aren’t just for aes­thet­ics, they im­prove in­door air qual­ity and pro­vide mul­ti­ple health ben­e­fits.

“They help com­bat pos­i­tive ions that can wreck havoc on your en­ergy lev­els and con­cen­tra­tion and they cre­ate a sense of calm that is thought to lower stress lev­els and com­bat anx­i­ety,” Morag said.

With all the at­trac­tive va­ri­eties avail­able, choos­ing what to buy can be over­whelm­ing.

“I’ve al­ways loved the look and idea of an in­door oa­sis but never had the con­fi­dence to start,” she said.

“Folks like me – who kill most plants they touch – can ben­e­fit from a per­son­alised Lit­tle Leaf con­sul­ta­tion for about $130.

“All plants thrive in dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments and some re­quire a lit­tle more TLC than oth­ers.

“Our in­door plant con­sults in­clude plant and pot se­lec­tions, tak­ing into ac­count light lev­els, bud­get and your ex­ist­ing in­te­rior decor.

“Once the quote has been ap­proved we can or­gan­ise in­stal­la­tion and al­ways pro­vide plant care guide­lines.”

Lit­tle Leaf Co also stocks An­nie Sloan’s dec­o­ra­tive Chalk Paint (TM) and of­fers work­shops on the tra­di­tional Ja­panese art of shi­bori and kokedama in the stu­dio.
