I SPECIALIZE IN INTERIOR PLANT DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Interior plant design or plantscaping is my favorite element of design. Magazine like Architectural Digest or Elle Decor always use plants in their designs. Plants are often the finishing touch once all other elements are in place. Adding plants to a room adds vibrance.
I learned about plant design from professional interior plantscaper Sharon Carter. I would link to Sharon here, but she doesn’t use social media or advertise (she never needed to). I met Sharon while organizing an A-list actress’s home. I had no idea plantscaping was a thing and begged Sharon to let me work for her. She agreed. I assisted Sharon while she installed plans for interior designers Bonesteel Trout Hall. If you visit Bonesteel Trout Hall’s website you will see Sharon’s work throughout.
BENEFITS OF BRINGING THE OUTDOORS IN…
Not only are plants proven to lower stress levels they also clean your air. See my blog post about how NASA research has proven no other air purifier cleans the air as well as when they bring plants up with them in space. The air quality in an airtight home or office is usually worse than outdoor air. Since we spend a lot of time indoors, taking steps to improve air quality is a good investment. Especially if you live in one of the most polluted cities in America, Los Angeles.
AESTHETIC ELEVATION WITH THE BONUS OF CLEANER AIR
With further regard to air quality, the toxic products you use to clean your home can be worse than dust and dirt. Most household cleaning items pollute indoor air with their toxins. You may notice that after using toxic sprays you feel a wheeze in your chest. Vinegar water is a great alternative and acts similarly to bleach. Adding essential oils rosemary, lemon, grapefruit, eucalyptus, etc will cover the vinegar smell.
WHY CUSTOM INSTALLATION BY A PROFESSIONAL IS KEY
You will never tire of looking at nature. Plants are living sculptures. I place them in a way that accentuates your home or office’s existing design. Plants have the ability to draw the eye away from clutter and improve upon an unattractive view.
I CUSTOMIZE IN CONSIDERATION OF:
- complimenting the existing style of the home
- amount of light
- lifestyle (how often do you travel)
- if you have a history of having a black thumb
- handsy children
- naughty cats
WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU HIRE ME:
- in-depth knowledge and experience caring for plants
- design scheme – plant and pot selection
- healthy plants (some plants are already dying when you buy them)
- installation (proper potting and drainage customized to eat plants needs)
- top-dressing to hid the soil and make it look “done”
- plant instructions for each plant
- reliable resource if you have any questions or concerns
