Hilton Carter would have to have the biggest fiddle leaf fig I've ever seen, and rightly so, this fiddle has a name - Frank.
So, Hilton is clearly a plant lover from way back, and delve into this book and you'll see it with your own eyes!! Many images of his book are of his own home, and I've never seen someone with more plants, but so carefully curated and arranged.
Hilton says that the staples of a new home are a bed, a couch, a fridge and a plant. I would have to agree. Plants add life to a home, and Hilton is passionate about how important they are, visually, and mentally and physically as well.
For those who have no idea on where to start, whether it be the size of plant you need for a space or how to look after it, this is the book for you.
"Millennials are filling their homes, and the void in their hearts, with houseplants" (The Washington Post).
Make your home a healthier and more beautiful place to be with Hilton Carter's inspirational ideas.
Take a tour through Hilton's own apartment and other lush spaces, filled with a huge array of thriving plants, and learn all you need to know to create your own urban jungle.
As the owner of over 200 plants, Hilton feels strongly about the role of plants in one's home, not just for the beauty they add, but for health benefits as well: "having plants in your home not only adds life, but changes the airflow throughout. It's also a key design element when styling your place. For me, it wasn't about just having greenery, but having the right variety of greenery. I like to see the different textures of foliage all grouped together. You take a fiddle leaf fig and sandwich it between a birds of paradise and a monstera and, yes!"
You will be armed with the know-how you need to care for your plants, where to place them, how to propagate, how to find the right pot, and much more, and most importantly, how to arrange them so that they look their best.
