Care thrives in green leaves

Did you know that if you take care of your plants, they’ll take care of you? We have long known that plants are an easy way to make your home more pleasant. But we also wanted to find out if and how they affect our health. We found answers to our questions in a study we carried out with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Plants are indeed good for our well-being. Our green friends can help us to be more creative and also reduce stress – care thrives in their green leaves!

Humidifies air

The areca palm humidifies air indoors and is perfect in offices or homes where the air is dry. It is sometimes called a butterfly palm due to the shape of the leaves ― and if the tops turn brown, just prune them to keep the plant well. It thrives best in a bright place indoors, and can be a bit sensitive to direct sunlight, drafts, overwatering and touching. A plant that can boost your well-being and make the room feel more vibrant and inspired!

Ideas and inspiration

“Home idea with IKEA”: no more chaos in the gallery office
“Home idea with IKEA”: no more chaos in the gallery office

This week, we are visiting the “Arka” gallery of Lithuanian Artists’ Association located in Vilnius. Evelina and Monika, the co-workers, call this place a second home. They spend a lot of time here planning exhibitions and working on various projects, sometimes even after the working hours. Therefore, their office has to be as inspiring as the art gallery itself. The IKEA interior designer Erika Kranauskaitė has helped the girls to set up the office of their dreams. Check the result and browse the IKEA digital catalogue for even more ideas and practical tips.
