Have you ever walked into a plant nursery or greenhouse and instantly felt a change in the air? The feeling of calm that washes over you as you tilt your head back, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. This is the feeling you’re looking to replicate when you bring plants into your home.” – Hilton Carter, in "Wild at Home"


For Hilton Carter, it all started with one plant– a fiddle-leaf fig named Frank, to be exact. As he explains in his best-selling book, Wild at Home: How to style and care for beautiful plants, his interest in plants started out as purely practical. Since then, he has written and photographed three other best sellers, Wild Interiors: Beautiful plants in beautiful spaces (April 2020), Wild Creations (April 2021) and Living Wild (April 2023), partnered with Target on two collections Hilton Carter for Target, and released his Guide to Houseplants workshops with the Magnolia Network.

Hilton Carter is a plant + interior stylist, author, and artist. He has a loyal following on Instagram (@hiltoncarter), where he shares his knowledge of plant care and interior styling with the design and green loving community. When not getting his hands dirty in a project, Hilton can be found cozying up in his Baltimore home with his wife Fiona, and daughter, Holland.
