Indoor Green: Living with plants

This beautifully photographed 208-page-book celebrates houseplants with aplomb.

Claffey’s interest was sparked by a period spent living in Japan, and subsequently fueled by time spent in Brooklyn apartments. An art curator’s space in Tokyo, a Melbourne painting studio, a Kyoto plant shop, an ‘Aussie burbs modernist’ home, and the Featherstone House (designed by Robin Boyd) are just some of the profiles included here. The section ‘plant portraits’ contains useful and detailed instructions on growing 10 common houseplants. Covering topics such as the role of plants in art, the tsubo niwa (Japanese garden), the use of plants to filter air, the invention of the self-watering plant pot and an extensive essay on plant care, this book is pure joy for ceramicists, photographers, craftspeople, interior decorators, and anyone who can appreciate the life plants breathe into a room.
