Going Green

We have so many clients that love the idea of plants, but lack the green thumb required to keep a plant alive. If this is you....there is hope! There are many benefits of having plants around you, besides air quality. They can contribute to an overall feeling of well being and make your space feel more relaxing. In fact the biophilia hypothesis suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life.

So don't feel left out, green thumb or not. Check out our tips below on how to bring the outdoors in with living plant alternatives!

Plant Photography

Photos of the outdoors and plants can evoke the same feeling of having real plants indoors. With great photography, the vibrant colors and textures of the greenery come through.
