Flowers that would do well inside?

I would love to have some flowers growing in my kitchen, but there isn't much light. I was wondering if you could recommend some pretty flowers that are fairly easy to take care of.

RE: Flowers that would do well inside?

Most flowers just do not grow well indoors. Even flowering houseplants may have some difficulties unless required light levels are met. Personally, I find orchids tolerant of relatively low light levels and with a very extended bloom period. Moth orchids - phalaenopsis - can be in bloom for as long as 6 months. Easy-peasey to care for and sold cheaply at Trader Joe's.
