Healthy Home :: Easy Indoor Plants

antique chest // bedroom // simplified bee #chinoiserie

As I mentioned in the Rue article, plants are an essential element of home decor. House plants bring the outside in, add a splash of color and texture, but most importantly create healthy homes. These all natural air purifiers not only give off oxygen, but some varieties are known to remove harmful chemicals such as ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene. In addition, indoor plants can even decrease stress while boosting mood, memory, concentration. A win, win, win right? But, sometimes selecting the right plant can be overwhelming so here are some simple tips to keep in mind:

Below I’ve rounded up my top 5 best indoor plants. These are plants I incorporate in my own home because of their purifying properties and low maintenance.

Design Reveal :: My Home

Today I’m thrilled to share a very personal space: my home. Recently I welcomed a favorite online shelter magazine, Rue to take a tour of our ranch-style home located on the San Francisco Peninsula. The design has been a work in progress for over a decade (I’m never really done!). When we first moved in we tackled renovating the kitchen, bathrooms and landscaping front & back. In the last year as you may know, we added a master bedroom suite. Here’s a look…

I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my home – pop over to Rue Magazine to see the entire feature. And a big thank you to the Rue team including Crystal Palecek (founder/editor-in-chief), Julia Robbs (photographer) and Shoko Wanger (writer) who made the whole process so fun. You’re the best!

happy decorating,

Baby Boy Nursery Design by Caitlin Flemming

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

Sophisticated, timeless and just plain adorable. The nursery created by Caitlin Flemming, interior designer and the voice behind the Sacramento Street blog is all that. Featured on Rue Daily last week, Caitlin shares the sweet room that welcomed her son, Jackson. The neutral room is grounded in beiges and whites (great starting points for either gender) and then layered with blue accents. It’s clearly a baby’s room, although sophisticated art, rich textiles and timeless furnishings make it a space that adults would love to hang out in as well. Bravo Caitlin!

Weekend Reading :: Shelter Magazine Recommendations

Ah, the weekend. Perhaps you have something fun planned with family and friends, but hopefully you get some downtime to simply relax and recharge. For me, I enjoy reading shelter magazines (big surprise I’m sure!).  Here’s what I’ll be reading this weekend…

Matchbook Magazine - June Issue

Matchbook Magazine’s June issue (digital format) features a not to be missed house tour of design greats (and personal faves), John Robshaw and iomoi’s husband & wife team, Matthew Grenby and Irene Chen.

Can you tell which home is which? They are so different, but I love both styles!

Another online shelter magazine I’ll be reading is this month’s Rue. The issue is focusing on wedding and entertaining, so lots of inspiration for brides. It also features the charming apartment of recent interior design college graduate and my former intern, Michaela Noelle. It’s look into the urban LA studio she shares with a fellow design student. I love how they pulled off so much in such a tiny space. It’s a  fun, eclectic mix of styles.  So proud of Michaela!!!

And in case you missed it, you may want to check out the home tour of designer, Kelly Wearstler in last month’s Lonny Magazine. It’s so Kelly. The space is all glamour, but the images with her boys make it feel like a real home.
