CARA ANDERSON, B.ENV.D.
INTERIOR DESIGNER / PLANT ENTHUSIAST
Welcome! I am Cara Anderson and am the creator and designer behind Plant Roost. I am an Interior Designer and a self-educated plant enthusiast located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
I've been surrounded by plants my entire life - indoor plants, gardening, strawberry picking and working in a commercial greenhouse for years with the responsibility of growing and caring for thousands of plants. I graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2013 with a Bachelor of Environmental Design in the Faculty of Architecture, specializing in Interior Design. I have been working in the industry for 6 years and have had the privilege of designing a range of projects including everything from small residential homes to multi-million dollar airplane hangars and military bases.
Plant Roost was created to showcase what plants can do for interior spaces and help others bring more green into their lives. Plants not only have proven health benefits but add such character, liveliness, colour and texture to a space that synthetic materials can never achieve. My goal is to encourage the idea of incorporating plants into your space and to prove that it's much easier than you may think to design, style and care them.
