By Olivia Heath, HouseBeautiful

Houseplants shouldn't just be limited to the living room. When it comes to children's bedrooms, choose plants that "have something quirky about them, even verging on the macabre," Ian Drummond and Kara O'Reilly suggest in their new book, At Home With Plants. "A good approach is to choose plants that can be dotted in among their books and bits and pieces."

And of course, "choose varieties that can take a fair bit of neglect," they advise. With this in mind, take a look at 12 plants ideal for children's spaces in this extract from At Home With Plants.
