I feel happy, calm and peaceful when it is in my company? I think about them regularly and my addiction gets stronger every passing day? I have an new found passion for house plants and they honestly DO bring real joy into my life! It sounds funny to even say that out loud, but its true and I don’t care. I am fully aware that I have an obsession. I love plants! Is this normal?
Big ones, medium ones, small ones; leafy, flowery, hanging plants – you name it, I want it! However, the downside is that I currently live in a basement apartment with minimal to say the least, lighting. As a result, I’ve shamefully killed some of my green friends. My fixation may be getting out of control seeing that when I was brainstorming with a friend the other night, I came up with this coocoo-banana idea of opening a botanical themed restaurant with dim candlelit and giant chandeliers…I mean is this possible. This is how my brain thinks!
So for now, until I open that boho-urban jungle/restaurant, I will fill my space with as many low-light friendly lovers as possible.
PLANTS I WANT & OWN
- CAST IRON PLANT
- SNAKE PLANT
- PEACE LILY
- CHINESE EVERGREEN
I own a snake plant and I have to say, it is healthy and happy without light. Eventually, I will buy a chinese evergreen and pothos, they are both very pretty plants. I was recently gifted a gorgeous peace lily the and I was over the moon! Especially, knowing that it’s an excellent air purifier and helps reduce the level of mold spores that grow in homes- bonus!
MY MUST RE-CREATE LIFESTYLE PROJECT
Life Goals: This right here is my ideal living space-office dream come true. I promise, I will make this happen one day, I absolutely love the urban chic rustic vibe. I found this image browsing on Pinterest and I now follow Bodie and Foe to whom I give style credit to.
If you find that cold winters give you a bit of the blues and you want something to brighten your days then I suggest buying a plant. It really has helped me during the long cold months, especially living in a basement. Plants have many health benefits and make the space more inviting and welcoming.
Thanks for reading and stay positive!
