The Joys of Winter Greenery
26 December 2018
As the cold sets in to Chicago and the sky darkens closer to 4:00, it’s easy to slip into winter doldrums. Located close to some of Chicago’s best seasonal activities and situated with plenty of cozy amenities on premise, 1000M helps residents enjoy the season in the comfort of home. On Level 72, our Winter Garden teems with plantlife year round, allowing residents to soak in the mental and physical benefits of indoor greenery. Whether you choose to lounge on Level 72 or fill your own home with lushness, here a few of our favorite reasons to add more plants into indoor spaces.
Because they release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, green plants can help purify the air within your home. 1000M has already received media spotlight on the building’s filtration system, but adding a few extra plants to your residence makes an additional impact. Numerous studies show that plants can sharpen focus, reduce stress and contribute to a variety of other health benefits. And, of course, placing plants around your home contributes a beautiful experience for the senses of sight, touch and smell. Lush potted greenery pairs perfectly with the natural lighting of all 1000M residences.
Looking for some inspiration on what grows best indoors? Try low-maintenance varietals such as aloe vera, snake plants and succulents, which require minimal watering and a bit of light. For a touch of color, bromeliads, zebra plants or peace lilies are easy to take care of and add a complimentary vibrancy to Kara Mann’s interior design palettes. No matter how hectic your schedule, you can still take advantage of all the benefits greenery has to offer.
Located on Level 72, our Winter Garden lets residents enjoy year-round flora, green walls, luxurious seating arrangements, and 19-foot floor-to-ceiling glass walls allowing you to take in 180º views of Lake Michigan, Chicago’s skyline and Grant Park without ever stepping outside.
