One of the trends I love right now is ‘urban jungle’ or the idea of filling your home with plants. Greenery is said to have many positive benefits including providing cleaner air, boosting your mood and even enhancing concentration and memory (yes, really! I discovered many other benefits too here). But above all else, they do look lovely, don’t they?! I mean, what would a home be without plants and flowers? That’s why I was so happy to discover the ‘Green Home Book‘. The tome was created as result of a collaboration between Finnish creatives Riikka Kantinkoski (I once featured her beautiful home here) and Susanna Vento and includes beautiful photography taken in homes across Finland as well as simple tips on how to care for plants. Here’s a sneak peek….

Ah so inspiring. I must pick up a copy as soon as possible!

Doesn’t it look lovely?

If you’re a bit of a plant lover you’ll also love these snapshots from the beautiful home of Jeska Hearne, the Brownstone of the owner of plant interior design company, and the bohemian home of a florist.

Oh, and I love this DIY idea – how fab? 

Have a lovely day!

PS I think the reason I’m thinking about books today is because I’m sitting at the library researching a new project (more to follow soon!). It’s actually the perfect place to sit and work as it’s super quiet and overlooks the park. The only problem is my typing is so LOUD!! I think I might need to sellotape cotton wool to my finger tips next time!

PPS I have such an exciting Swedish summer cottage to share with you tomorrow – it will have us all dreaming of balmy summer days!
