Rooted in Design

I think you all know my new found love for plants. While I haven’t quite mastered them yet, they are still fascinating and I want to incorporate as many of them as I can in to my home. Interior design is awesome, but purposeful interior design? Even better!!!

I have a huge love for pretty books and pictures too. Enter Rooted in Design.

Rooted in Design

I was so ridiculously excited when I opened this book and saw all the gorgeous pictures of various ways to incorporate house plants around my home in a way that is appealing to the eye.

There are so many tips in here on how to decorate window seals and various areas of your home, as well as using plants as walls or living curtains. I mean, they are so right…you could totally use plants as a wall to separate rooms in your house!!! Just take a peak at a few pages of this book….

I could flip through it for hours admiring and planning all the different elements that I want to incorporate into my own home. What is even better is that there are paragraphs dedicated on how to select and care for the plants, and how to create the images you see in the pictures. They even give you ideas on items that you can re-purpose as a planter that you may already have in your home.

I think my favorite part of the book, besides all the useful information…is that the pictures aren’t over the top. They look like they weren’t edited much and were taken in real homes. It makes me feel like I could recreate nearly every single look in this book…which gives me more confidence than some ridiculously over edited magazine type pictures, you know what I mean?

You can learn more about the author of the book here.

If you are at all interested in indoor plants, I would suggest taking a look at this book! Ebooks are great and all, but this is one you are going to want the hardback version of. If anything, it makes a pretty coffee table book when you are done!

**I received this book from Blogging for Books but all opinions are honest and of my own. **

    I’ve really been into plants since moving out and would love to know what I can use for planters besides ones I have to go out and buy! That would make for a great coffee table book too!

    I love plants too but I suck and putting them together! That’s why I stick with ferns- I am just not creative in that way. I need to read this book, obviously!

    Such a pretty book! So you can come and practice at my house if you want? Also, I really want that gold end table on the front of the book. Is that too much to ask?

    Such a pretty book. I’m not really into plants. I use to have to care for my late bosses plants and I once over watered them and he was so annoyed with me. LOL.

    We find our indoor plants really flourish outside in the shady summer. I wish we had room for more plants, I’d live in a jungle house if I could. Clearly my home picture would never make it in the book. 🙂

    I have a big ole green thumb!! And I love this book! Perfect coffee table book that would end up everywhere but the coffee table!

    Can someone people come grow these things at my house? Oh and also teach my dogs that inside plants aren’t for eating…. asshole dogs.

    Oh, what a beautiful book!! I feel like I’d look at that time and time again! 🙂

    I love the idea of indoor plants with the dogs and cat, I don’t know that it’d be exactly practical. Maybe a few hanging plants would work. I should look into that.

    I do love a good book with pretty pictures, though.

    Looks like a great book and really the kind of interior design I’m on board with. I love what you said about it feeling attainable and not overly-staged. Always refreshing! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I love plants but I don’t have enough sun facing windows. 🙁

    Now that I actually have enough indoor space for some greenery, I could definitely use some inspiration! Plus I can always use another pretty coffee table book 🙂

    What a great book. I am still trying to keep my cacti alive and this would come in handy!
