What Houzz contributors are saying:

This space is airy and light filled, utilizing line and glass to their full potential. Without plantings, however, the hallway would seem boxlike and lifeless. The addition of spiky foliage emphasizes the height of the space while breaking up the sparseness.
When plants show up in surprising places, you have achieved the idea of spontaneity. Lifeless areas in and around our homes cry out for verdant touches. To some, it may be incongruous to line an interior hallway with a border of Sansevieria plants, but these graphic plants from the tropics go a long way to warm the stark architecture with a playful wink. If you don't have a garden outside, create one indoors.
Snake plants, seen here in this home entryway, are versatile indoor plants known to improve air quality.
The sea of mother-in-law's tongue in this Santa Monica, California, home creates a stunning sense of arrival in a partially covered entrance courtyard. The leaves appear to be waving in the wind like a field of wheat while blending in with the rectilinear architectural forms. The fascinating yet subtle play between texture and volume makes this example a true winner.

The plant in the right of the pic is called "mother in laws tongue" To divide plants and make new ones, one simply cuts the root, called a rhizome, and replants the pieces, with their corresponding leaves, in a new pot. So, if your thumb is just slightly green, within a few years, you could have enough pots of Sansevieria to start giving to friends.

The sea of mother-in-law's tongue in this Santa Monica, California, home creates a stunning sense of arrival in a partially covered entrance courtyard. The leaves appear to be waving in the wind like a field of wheat while blending in with the rectilinear architectural forms. The fascinating yet subtle play between texture and volume makes this example a true winner.
