This past week, Gardenista’s issue theme was “Love Letter to the Houseplant.” Erin and Michelle explored the history of indoor greenery, sussed out the best exterior green paints, visited a greenhouse restaurant in England, and discovered the new “it” plant (hint: it’s not the fiddle head fig).

Above: See the nine exterior green paints that made the cut when Meredith surveyed our Architect and Designer Directory in Architects Pick the Best Exterior Green Paints.

Above: Some of us at Remodelista, when faced with gardening obstacles (read: vermin and insects), tend to give up entirely. Which is why we have Erin Boyle to help us out; see her tips on Getting Rid of Fungus Gnats. And curious what the next “It” houseplant is? See Erin’s pick here.

Above: Apple Flip cocktail anyone? Kendra explored the offerings in the Ethicurean Cookbook, new from the team behind the Ethicurean restaurant in Somerset, England.

Above: “I hate houseplants. I mean, really hate them,” Meredith writes in Houseplants for a Hater. So how did she learn to love houseplants?
