Urban dwellers have finally caught on to the beauty, joy and mindful benefits of bringing nature into the home. This innovative and practical book by Elle Décor Idée co-editor Camille Soulayrol, now available in English, takes the houseplant trend to the next level. This book, which offers rich inspiration for home decoration, crafting and DIY, will help you succeed in reinvigorating your interior using the diverse bounties of nature.
Leafy green houseplants, hardy succulents and cacti, and flowering perennials add as much to your daily sense of well-being as to the beauty of your home. Camille opens her book with all the essentials you need to cultivate twenty varieties of house plant – from calathea to pilea peperomioides – with practical tips for repotting, watering and sunlight recommendations.
Plantopia presents a broad programme of gorgeous DIY, natural health and beauty projects. Camille shares step-by-step inspiration for creating terrariums and aquatic plant habitats, decorative tips for showcasing plants at home with wreathes or geometric frames that allow vines to thrive, and nature-inspired table setting ideas incorporating leaves and dried herbs. Tips on how to frame blossoms and leaves and how to create herbal dyes for textiles round out a rich palette of home decorating projects. Learn to leverage the benefits of specific plants through recipes for natural cosmetics, essential oils, and herbal infusions sourced from your houseplant haven.
Never has the art of creating an idyllic interior garden been covered in such a broad, accessible, and eye-catching volume, with its pastel colour palette, innovative tutorials, and exquisite photography and illustrations.
