TAKE A LEAF FROM PLANTS
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.
