An inherited typewriter and lamp adorn Alexandra's desk. She adds a touch of life and creativity to spur her on with aloe plants "dressed" in handmade sweaters.

Petite cozies are keeping these plants toasty warm. This would be a great way to salvage a favorite sweater that's developed holes or begun to unravel. The button detailing is impossibly cute.

Cute cozies. If you find yourself snowed in and hankering for a quick and satisfying project this winter, how about hand-knit plant cozies to keep your buds snug during a cold snap? Your pets will thank you for sparing them another doggy sweater.

West-facing windows. If your houseplants want a bit more light, west-facing windows are a good place to start. For most of the day, the light is bright and indirect. In the late afternoon it becomes more direct and more intense. If this is a bit too much light, simply move them away from the window a bit or add a sheer curtain. Favorites for west-facing windows include air plants, aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis), bird of paradise (Strelitzia reginae), coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides), English ivy (Hedera helix), common geranium (Pelargonium spp.) and different holiday cactuses.West-facing windows are also a good choice for getting plants such as amaryllis (Hippeastrum hybrids), azaleas (Rhododendron spp.), chrysanthemums, hibiscus and Persian violets (Exacum affine) to bloom. Once they flower, though, the full sun may shorten their blooming season. Move them away from the direct light to extend the blooms.Learn more about plants that grow well in west-facing windows

3. Aloe vera La sue spesse foglie carnose sono molto efficaci nella rimozione di formaldeide, xilene, toluene e ammoniaca e sono dei veri e propri bioindicatori. La comparsa di macchie marroni sulle foglie è il segno di un’ambiente fortemente inquinato. Facilmente coltivabile, è nota anche come pianta medicinale per le sue molteplici proprietà curative. Consigli di styling: la pianta tende ad allargarsi un po’ in tutte le direzioni e le foglie ricadono lateralmente sotto il loro stesso peso. Cercate di contenerle con un coprivaso alto magari in tessuto optical e ponetela sul comò oppure sulla libreria.
