    Hi Natasha. The table and chairs are vintage and were bought from a mid-century modern furniture dealer.

      Bring the outside inThere isn’t a room out there that isn’t improved in some way by the addition of a plant. Whether it’s a large, sculptural specimen, like this fiddle leaf fig, or small pots of succulents, lavender or ferns, plants instantly soften a space. Some green foliage will make a room feel lived-in and welcoming, and many plants are as good for our wellbeing as they are for our aesthetics.Have you considered these design elements? Are there any others you’d include? Share your thoughts in the Comments below.

They also improve air quality, and caring for them can become a stress-busting daily ritual.Not great at nurturing plantlife? Try a row of easy-to-keep, miniature succulents lined up along a sunny windowsill.Keen to grow plants in a small outside space? Check out how to grow a container garden

      Buy potted plants Don’t dismiss the power of houseplants to transform a space. Real greenery – either big and sculptural or small, frothy and frondy – can instil so much energy into your home, and for such minimal effort, too. Some plants are not just pleasant eye-candy either. Certain varieties, such as spider and rubber plants, can help rid the air of harmful toxins, while palms are natural humidifiers and release moisture into a room.Check out more ideas for improving your living space

      Where is it best positioned? Ideally somewhere warm – around 24°C – and in an uncluttered area, where its stunning looks can be appreciated fully. It will tolerate both low and bright indirect light. Direct sunlight will burn leaves. How much maintenance is involved? These plants can be a bit temperamental, requiring dusting, misting and careful watering to keep them happy and healthy.
