Watch how Mikel, a vintage seller and houseplant collector, made his small space so green

Houseplanted is a bi-weekly series where folks with extraordinary houseplant collections invite us inside their homes for a tour of their verdant spaces and to share tips and inspiration for keeping nature alive inside. 

More is more in this cosy Hamilton, Ont. bachelor apartment — especially when it comes to greenery. In this episode of Houseplanted, Mikel, a vintage seller and plant collector, shows us how he transformed his small space into a peaceful hideaway using the decorating power of plants.

"I couldn't imagine a house without plants," Mikel said. "I just think that they add a sense of livelihood and airiness that you can't get with anything else in design."

He also shares how he styles his plant collection alongside his favourite vintage furniture in his home.
