‘Greenterior: Plant-loving Creatives and their Homes’ documents the homes of 18 designers and artists through the lens of their abundant houseplants. The idea for this book originated from a blog called Coffeeklatch, founded by Bart Kiggen and Magali Elali, who are also big plant lovers themselves. During their interview sessions, they often met people with a common passion for greenery. Most of these chats ended up in exchanging plant tips and cuttings.
Their mission was to show these beautiful homes and consequently inspire others to embrace plants and flowers. They travelled from Brussels to New York looking for kindred spirits and plant-filled homes. In the book, each home tour is accompanied by an interview with the artist about their emotional connection to nature, as well as a guide to the greenery within. The book also includes an index with the particular characteristics of every plant shown in the photographs. ‘Greenterior’ is a sincere plea for more greenery in your houses since it is the easiest way to feel connected to nature, which sometimes seems far away.
