The best room in the house for your plants is the bath. Houseplants perform well with natural light and shower mist; as an added bonus, they also purify the air. And since you probably don't have an outdoor bathtub, they also bring a touch of green indoors. Above: House Balalla Kavanagh in Australia by Tribe Studio Architects .
