I'm Renting - No It's Not A Dirty Word! (Part 2)

Plants are our friends. Plants make people happy. Living in a "Jungalow" style space with plants indoors and out - hanging in planters, in pots, trailing over architecture and fittings - is a hallmark part of the relaxed, mindful bohemian.

Plants are great for our mental and physical wellbeing. We are all aware that the take in our carbon dioxide and release oxygen, they purify our air of toxins, control humidity. They make us feel calm and relaxed, and caring for plants can reduce anxiety and loneliness. We are designed to live in a natural environment and when we live our lives amongst natural and organic textures and plants our very biological make up excels!

For the renter - adding plants in pots and planters are a amazingly easy way to stamp our personality on our space and create a very nurturing and personal environment for ourselves and our loved ones.

However - when it comes to installing those amazing, statement waterfall like hanging plants- as renters can be challenging to not permanently place hooks in ceilings and walls etc,
