A simple, serene student apartment at Northwestern

My friend Gill rented a simple student apartment on Northwestern's campus and transformed it with restraint and thoughtful accessories. I love how it is serene, filled with light, and decorated with vibrant green plants - not just flowers, but living, air-cleaning trees, shrubs and other greens that need love, care, attention and regular watering.

It's inspired me to add a few plants to my apartment, despite my past track record of killing them off (there's a trail of orchid bodies in my wake of plant failures). I'm now the proud owner of a hydrangea bush and a new orchid that make me feel like it's springtime in Chicago even though it was 29 degrees today...
