Thejoysofplants.co.uk have created the UK’s first houseplant hotel suites, offering guests an immersive overnight forest-bathing experience, in the heart of London’s concrete jungle.
Open to the public from 16 October 2019, three studio suites at design-led hotel Leman Locke have been transformed into lush indoor jungles.
This has been done by award-winning biophilic designer and architect Oliver Heath, This Morning’s Mr Plant Geek – Michael Perry, and creative designer and Founder of Grace & Thorn, Nik Southern.
Each of the studio suites deliver a unique multisensory experience with houseplants taking over the walls, windows, bathrooms and even overhead. Each jungle suite encourages guests to discover how introducing more houseplants into a living space can boost overall wellbeing, reduce stress and even boost intimacy.
Guests will also be given tips and #planthacks on easy ways to bring houseplants into their homes, taking cues from the temporary design installations by our design experts, perfect for the many who rent or homeowners looking to easily transform their homes with greenery.
Room 1: Productivity Suite: Designed by Oliver Heath
Perfect for nomadic workers and business travellers, this suite is adorned with Boston ferns, peace lilies and snake plants – plants renowned for their productivity inducing properties. Guests will also be invited to enjoy a binaural beats audio experience; the latest audio ‘soundwave therapy’ designed to sharpen focus and stimulate creativity. The standard hotel mini bar is transformed into a plant-based fuel station, offering plant based ‘power snacks’ and a CBD oil shot.
