The indoor plants are one of the must-have of this summer: elegant, ideal for health and adaptable to every needs, our green friends are a piece of furniture really matchless.

THE LIVING ROOM
If you have at your disposal a living room with high ceilings, why don’t take advantage of them? The plants that develop vertically, recalling real trees, will give a touch of refinement and majesty.
For those who live in the city: voluminous plants have the ability to absorb high frequencies, reducing decibels. More color, less noise!
Cooking will give you more pleasure with a small green corner: mint, rosemary, basil and sage will be always available thanks to your personal vegetable garden, diffusing anywhere summer scents!
It’s possible to decorate with plants also your kitchen area. In this case, bonsai, begonia and ficus are great for it – very valuable to oppose the gases released in the environment!
Also the bathroom is an ideal space to be decorated with plants. This room can host indoors plant, no matter the size: for those who have less space, it’s possible to choose a vertical garden made of water-retaining plants; for those who have more square meters usable, instead, it’s possible to have fun and create a real full immersion into the nature!
A little bit of green in the bathroom is always a good thing, both for the lighting and to absorb the humidity of the room.
Of course, the terrace couldn’t miss, but be careful: not all the plants love sun and light!
Don’t worry, though: for the summer season we’ll propose a series of candidates that will be fine also outdoor.
The bougainvillea, which comes from tropical areas, is the summer vine by definition. The petunia, which needs six hours of daylight at least, will give color to your terrace with a lot of different shades. The geranium, if cared and watered with attention, will help you to keep insects away.
Keeping plants in your bedroom, following folk wisdom, is not recommended because they release carbon dioxide and consume oxygen.
To be honest, however, it’s not completely true: there are plants capable of purifying air, getting the quality of sleep better and releasing oxygen, like begonia, jasmine, aloe and phalenopsis orchid.
