For those of you that know me, you'll know that I'm not so good with plants – I'm much more of a fresh cut flowers kind of girl. Ever since I managed to kill off my husband's Bonsai tree within two weeks of moving in, I've never really lived it down. But there is something beautiful and energising about living plants in the home, so after eight years of being plant free I've decided to go green.

Our windows overlook a lovely private garden, peppered with flowers that change with season and various types of grasses. As F wistfully looks out from the window I feel guilty that he doesn't have a garden of his own to plant seeds in, uncover creepy crawlies and explore. So to ease the mama guilt I have bought a few hardy plants and a small watering can for F to create a little indoor garden. My favourite by far is the Aloe Vera cactus, due to its beautiful structured shape, bluey-green hues and that my chances of killing it are low. Each morning we check the soil and F asks if they would like a drink and asks me if they are happy – cute overload.

Take a look at these inspirational green interiors.
