8. Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)Making a comeback after many years in the style wilderness, the spider plant is deservedly popular with newbie plant lovers as it’s one of the easiest plants to grow. And like the other plants in this story it will not only help cool the air at your place, it will also absorb some of the toxins present as well. Tip: Happy in bright filtered light or semi-shade, spider plant needs a well-drained potting mix and regular watering in the warmer months. Mature plants produce tiny plantlets on the ends of stems that can be cut off and potted up to create new plants very easily.Your sayIf you enjoyed this story, like it, bookmark it, save the photos and share your thoughts on your favourite houseplants below.

Spider PlantBotanical name: Chlorophytum comosumThis spidery beauty, with all-green or variegated green and white striped leaves, tolerates a wide range of conditions and doesn’t ask for much. When little spiderettes appear on the end of leaves, plant some in small pots, still attached to the main plant. As they take root, cut them loose from Mum – it’s for their own good.Prefers: Bright indirect light and well-drained soil. Allow soil to dry between waterings. Keep your spider on the cool side, perhaps moving it to a cooler spot during summer.Hates: Not much really – just don’t saturate soil.

It mixes well with other sorbet shadesPeach is a good team player and it gets along well with many other colours. It works particularly nicely with other sorbet shades, such as mint green and duck-egg blue; anything in the same tone will combine well. In this light and sunny room, the peach sofa cushions quietly play their part in creating a soft, pastel scheme that’s relaxing and restful.View more living room photos

Janet Dunn added this to Jazz Up Your Decor With Dynamic Diagonals23 May 2016

Be subtleDiagonals are the loudest lines in terms of creating movement and mood, but can be introduced subtly to balance horizontals and verticals. Try a few low-key items, perhaps an angular feature chair, a table with tripod legs or just a small area of a diagonal pattern, like on a couple of cushions. There are lots of vertical lines in this cool Scandinavian room – the angles of the furniture counterbalance them with a quirky touch and draw the eye into the centre of the sociable space.
