from the fabulously talented folks who bring you coffeeklatch the online interview magazine, comes their beautiful new book, greenterior, plant loving creatives and their homes. greenterior by Bart Kiggen and Magali Elali is my new favorite coffee table book and for good reason — the book documents the homes of eighteen designers and artists through the lens of their abundant houseplants. The idea for the book originated from Coffeeklatch interview sessions, where bart and magali often met people with a common passion for greenery. Most of these chats ended up in exchanging plant tips and cuttings. what’s resulted is an inspiring decor book whether you love plants or not, but the book is also about sharing botanical content and reconnecting with nature.

i’ve always dreamed of having super tall ceilings. the ones, like some of these, that have that beautiful crown molding around the perimeter of the room, and killer pendant lamps swinging from ornate ceiling medallions. tall doors, too — i just love that look. i have tall ceilings in my living room and bedroom, but mine are exposed white beams — which i love, too. but i must say there is something elegantly chic and sophisticated about these great heights. you can always add crown molding and i’ve found these inexpensive ceilings medallions (just $30!) on amazon of all places — hardware stores carry them, too. i also think a unique pendant lamp can somehow make your ceilings seem taller, when done right — like pennyweight’s bedroom just below.
