trendspotting - plants

It's a green revolution. Plants are taking over rooms everywhere. On our trip to Sweden and Denmark in October I saw evidence of this all over the place but a quick look at Pinterest reveals the same thing. Luckily it's a fairly easy and inexpensive way to totally change the look of your home. I'm hoping the green thumbs out there can help me identify some of the plants below.

Pairing real plants with botanical prints is another way to bring a bit of greenery into your home.
