COVER STORY | Stephanie Mistrata Shares On Her Plant-Inspired Start-Up and Her Plans for Summer



WITH A LOVE FOR HOUSEPLANTS & ALL THINGS INTERIOR DESIGN, FIND OUT WHAT THIS PLANTERIOR DESIGNER HAS PLANNED FOR SUMMER

NAPERVILLE– What happens when a local based, full time 911 Dispatcher, wife, aspiring *ivf warrior* mother, and dog mom puts her entire soul and sass into developing a home-based business from scratch all on the solo? Root House Social is born!


Stephanie handpicks quality houseplants and planters, labels them with easy care instructions, and keeps them cozy in her home until you choose the gorgeous greenies to become the newest members of your home!


“Dreamed and created from my love of houseplants and all things interior design, I come to you as your own personal planterior designer,” Stephanie says. “My goal is to make your home cozier (and your well-being healthier/happier) through some good-lookin’ greenery.”


When she’s not living out her passion project, she likes to powerlift, visit local breweries and brewpubs, enjoy local artisan markets, and work in her yard. She cannot wait for her next beach vacation! -Photos Submitted
