Home Roaming – House Plants Love

House Plants in the home. Homes are curated and created both consciously and unconsciously as we live our lives. Outside influences affect the home designs. Whether because of items gifted from others or things we have bought ourselves. Each house has an imprint of ourselves.

Our next range of blogs is all about what influences your home. How different countries can influence design, or items inherited from family, or current style trends. Read more
