What a gorgeous book! I read this book in hopes of getting a few home decorating ideas and came away with not only that but an education on growing plants. This book is a wonderful guide in how to nurture our plants to grow healthy as well as how to find proper placement for each of them in our homes and offices.

This is a really fantastic resource for anybody looking for information on growing houseplants or using them in creative ways throughout the home. It's packed with information on different houseplant varieties (including some that were new to me) and information on light levels, houseplants that clean the air, great ways to display them, and on and on. Full color photos are used throughout and offer really good inspiration for lots of decorating styles.

My star system is 1 for really didn't like it, 2 for it was just okay, 3 for good, 4 for very good, and 5 for so good I plan to buy my own copy even if there are small drawbacks to it. I came very close to giving this a 5 as I would like to get my own copy, but the suggested retail price ($24.95) is a little high for me on our budget.

All in all, this is a really helpful book with fabulous inspiration that will be very helpful for folks looking to jazz up their homes with fun and functional plants.

I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for the purpose of review.

I'm purchasing this book for all three of my sisters when it is released. While it's difficult for me to decorate with plants because of my cats, I feel like my sisters and other family members know exactly how to do this. While I can't do everything in this book I feel like some projects are easy enough to do and I could keep them out of reach of little paws.  Excellent book.

This book was received as an ARC from Artisan Books in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Plants have been a topic on demand with a lot of members of our community plus our library is decorated with a lot of plants. Decorating with Plants is a great companion for plant education, the proper place to store the plant and the benefits they come with if taken care of properly. Also, the photographs were just breathtaking and well executed that you could not help but to read about the plants and what they're all about. Many of our patrons will be very impressed with the photos and the detailed descriptions and stories displayed throughout the book so we know this book will definitely circulate well at our library.

We will consider adding this title to our Non-Fiction collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

Having read numerous books on indoor plants, found this one chock full of information I’ve not read anywhere else or included in just one book.

Whether a beginner to household plants or been gardening for years, this book will be a great resource. At one time or another, we all have had a plant or two die unexpectedly and seemingly for no reason. Author explains how to not just ascertain the light the plant requires but also correct type of soil, proper watering, and correct sized pot. There’s so much to consider when choosing a houseplant!

The author has written a thoroughly and often complicated subject into manageable segments.
