Intro
Green Abode is a cozy virtual residence for my plant passion. I’m a big plant enthusiast and I find plants and nature truly fascinating, so I wanted to create a platform that would allow me to share my love and knowledge. My aim was to create a platform that would combine entertainment and education, be useful for plant owners, and inspire any visitor to learn more about plants. Read about the concept and process below if you are curious, but for those who can’t wait to explore, go to green-abode.com, for the best experience open the website from a computer screen.

Content
Content was the most important part of my project and I aimed to equally balance useful/educational and aesthetic/inspiring. For the educational part, I labeled all the plants in the room and organized their care tips in a plant guide book.
Each plant is also featured Instagram with a post dedicated to its origin. The framework is a minimalized room layout with a plant sitting on a shelf as a centerpiece.
To inspire and create a sense of connection, I included interviews with plant owners, talking about their experiences in a cozy setting of their own homes (due to Covid 19 quarantine all the videos were filmed by the participants themselves), surrounded by their plants. I also included a blog to reflect on my own journey as a plant parent, website owner, and creator of this project, plus a few more exciting things that I won’t spoil for you, go see them for yourself;)
