More pretty indoor plantlife

Houseplants are healthy, provide fresh air... blablabla - you can read all about it in our last post '6 reasons to get houseplants now'.

After writing this post however, i was left with a feeling of 'hm'.
You know what i mean? Just 'hm'.

I'm going to play it straight: of course it's lovely plants have all these great characteristics and are actually good for you, but the main reason why i want more plants in my house is because i think it looks sooo pretty.
Which is shallow, i know (that's why i added the other 5 reasons).

Also, we might not all have the same preference when it comes to plantlife.

Par Example:
My little nephew (4 at the time) once asked me quite reproachfully Why on earth i had a cactus in my living room. Why would i have a plant in my house that can puncture skin?
After going through the experience of being stung by that cactus himself, he couldn't imagine why in the world i would willingly have something that prickly (and ugly) in my living-environment.
I had a look at his finger (no blood, luckily) mumbled something about thinking it looked pretty and moved the unfortunate plant a little higher up.

I guess what i'm trying to say is: you should like plants.
In the '6 reasons'-roundup i tried to convince you with a few pretty pictures, but for those of you who need more persuasion please check out the very stylish interior greenery in these photographs.

Lovely, no?
We do indeed all need houseplants. If only because they look so pretty.
