Snowed in? Tired of winter? Well, today we’re visiting Laurie Fischer’s house, which is full of beautiful houseplants!
I love this image Laurie sent in of blooming, thriving plants inside—in stark contrast to the snowy scene outside. If you are a gardener in a cold climate, you need a space like this to get through the long winter!
What a wonderful workspace filled with plants. Notice that there are ample lights hanging above the plants at the window. Adding artificial lights to supplement dark windows and to lengthen the short winter day can dramatically increase the number of houseplants you can grow successfully. And best of all, modern LED lights are energy efficient, making them an affordable way to keep your plants well-lit.
You hardly need curtains when you have this many houseplants! I love that Laurie uses ordinary light fixtures to help provide her plants with enough light. Grow lights can be an attractive part of your décor while still keeping plants happy.
