Scientists have now combined the concept of the houseplant with more common air purification systems to create a hybrid system that is reported to multiply the capacity of a typical house plant to clean air by an average of one thousand percent. Andrea works with a mechanical fan to speed air circulation within the plant’s plastic pod home. In so doing, toxins move more quickly through the leaves, roots, and soil, thus detoxifying the indoor air more effectively that standard carbon filters. Expelled substances are caught in a tray beneath the unit.

The Pantone Colours of Spring 2013

Oct 30, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

What will spring 2013 look like in terms of colour? While the colours are fresh and bright, they are not quite as bold as what we saw last year. The neutral tones are more subtle and almost fade into the background and there is a strong green influence for 2013.
