Plants are the easiest way to bring in liveliness to your interiors. A single tall one next to your plush sofa, or a cluster of them on your lazy Susan, or some in a trough on your study, plants make the space more lived-in, more loved, and definitely more fabulous.

So if you are wondering which ones to bring in, then here’s a quick list of plants that are easy to care for, and will survive the laziest of green thumbs.
