{tropical elegance}



Not normally fond of green plants, preferring numerous bouquets of fresh-cut flowers in vases scattered about, but there is something about these oversized splashes of green against fresh white interiors that seems to exude a relaxed easiness and tropical elegance.

Love that tropical feeling in a room! Just like being on vacation. But not on vacation. Sadly. A girl can dream, even if it is by having tropical plants in her house! :-)

Happy week, BFF!

I am definitely a green plant person, I think it just livens up the house. I have them all over, and I just bought one that is related to a palm (even though it's small) - now I can indulge my tropical island fantasies!

This is a great home. The green contrasts amazingly with the white sofa and armchair.
Wish I had a home like this... But I'll have to settle for my small apartment... [sigh]
Thanks for sharing this. Your blog is uber-cool!

Aren't those banana plants - at least in the last room? I'm not normally a plant person either, but I do like these rooms with the simple color palette and splash of green. The trick of course, is to keep them alive inside!

Well good morning, Felicity :) Thanks for answering Marie Louise's question about the banana plants in the last image. Any idea what types of plants are in the other two rooms?

I'm in agreement with the small green plant thing, but when they get big... well, drama and some great shadows for dinner parties. They also serve as a convenient place to dump the melt water from the champagne bucket the morning after...
