Although it might seem like a mammoth task to get your office looking great for your workers, what if we told you there is one office design secret that minimizes the effort you need to put in? In a word plants.

Plants are a great way to bring a little bit of the outdoors into your office, breaking up the monotony of the four walls that make up your office.

Everyone loves a bit of greenery in an office space and while they will help brighten up the environment in your office, there have been plenty of studies linking office plants with a boost in happiness and productivity2, too.

Plant Walls: Bringing The Outside, In!

One of the most popular office additions that we provide is the plant wall; a wall of greenery which instantly brings a bit more life to the office space.

It creates a massive statement piece in the office environment and is perfect for even the most corporate of offices while simultaneously promoting the company as environmentally friendly.

Make the Most of Natural Resources

These plant walls are a great way to bring a bit of nature into an urban office space where plants and natural resources are usually non-existent. Not only do they create a beautiful statement in the office, they also improve the quality of air something that all businesses can benefit from.

Horror!

Man Beheads Lover and Leaves Her Head Next to Their …

Timothy Allen

A man, Timothy Allen, has admitted beheading his girlfriend, Samantha Ho, and leaving the severed head next to her dead pet collie, Mirror Online reports.

Talented scientist Ms Ho, 39, was killed on August 29 after suffering multiple cuts to her neck which saw it dismembered from her body.

She had made a desperate 999 call from her home in Cambridgeshire but armed police arrived too late. Her seriously injured partner, Timothy Allen, 40, was taken to hospital and later arrested on suspicion of murder.

Today Allen pleaded guilty to killing Ms Ho after the Crown accepted his plea to manslaughter on the basis of diminished responsibility.

Appearing via video link at the Old Bailey from Wymondham police station, the court heard Allen lived with his partner at 17 Curfew Place, St Neots.

As he was arraigned this morning to the charge of murder, Allen responded: Not guilty but guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Bespectacled Allen, wearing a grey fleece, kept his arms folded on the table and looked looked towards the ground as he entered his plea.

Andrew Jackson, for Allen, said: The likelihood of that plea was communicated to the Crown a couple of weeks ago. I will explain why that is an acceptable plea when this matter comes up next in court.

Samantha Ho

At the time of the killing, neighbours in the couple s quiet cul-de-sac spoke of their horror over Ms Ho s death.

Ian Warsfold, 49, said: Sam was lovely, they were a lovely couple they used to join in with all the community events and social evenings.

Her death is absolutely shocking, we re all distraught.

Sam loved that dog and she and Tim used to walk it a lot sometimes my son went out with them.

Samantha and Allen moved into their semi-detached home in St Neots two years ago.

She has worked for bio-science company Asterand for the last decade.

Allen is believed to work at medical company Asthma Trak.

Sentencing was adjourned and will either take place in Cambridgeshire or Southwark Crown Court.

Addressing Allen, the Judge, Mrs Justice McGowan said: Your case can t be dealt with today because we need to hear from some of the doctors. But it will be dealt with on the March 17.
