A few weeks ago I wrote this post, where I told you that I was going to be taking part in a #Lifeimprovement collaboration with Homebase and Oliver Heath, looking at if improvements made to our homes can improve our personal wellbeing. For my part in the campaign, I was asked to focus on indoor plants.
Being that I work from home and have both a young baby and a nearly three year old, I spend a lot of time inside at home. I often like to 'escape' for some fresh air and will often take the boys out over to our local park - we love being outside and I love getting out and about, being outdoors helps my mind feel refreshed and inspired. So adding a touch of the great outdoors and of nature by using indoor plants to our home made sense - it's a wonder I hadn't though of doing so before, especially since indoor plants themselves are generally quite inexpensive.
Another of my favourites is the bonsai tree that lives in our window sill, next to the computer in the room Adam and I do our work in. Adding a plant in there was what I was most excited about, as I often feel a little boxed in when I'm in there for hours working.
