Snake Plant for the Home Office
A 2011 study in the Journal of Environmental Psychology showed that houseplants in the office setting can actually prevent fatigue and improve attention span. For a real statement, choose a snake plant, which has long, sword-like leaves tipped in gold. It’s an ideal focal point or an excellent screen to visually block out any household hustle and bustle.
Bamboo in the Dining Room
Lucky bamboo is a striking houseplant that could not be easier to care for. It lives happily in most light conditions and grows in nothing more than pebbles and distilled water. Available in either the straight or the twisted variety, bamboo brings elegance to any room, without the mess and expense of cut flowers. Display bamboo on a buffet or a plant stand, or even use it as a centerpiece on your table.
