After my post yesterday on the beautiful planters, I felt inspired to go on the hunt for interiors with plant life. Plants are so good for the air quality in your home, so I have always had a few, but I've always struggled a bit trying to display them and fit them into the decor. After this particular round-up, however, I'm inspired to work at it a little harder. The images below are beautifully styled - I tried to include unusual groupings/planters as well, in case you have space challenges! Tell me, how do you like your plants? I'd love to see!
The photos above are all from Boskke - planting upside down is visually interesting, it helps save water and space. I love the kitchen herb idea - it's on my inspiration board!
Go Smaller: this is the direction I want to go in. The trouble is, I plant something in the most adorable tiny pot, the plant gets too big, and then, sadly, it dies. From the look of my "pictoral research", the trick is using cacti, succulents & bonsai... something with a small root system, that doesn't need a lot of water. I have these silly little shelves by the window in my kitchen that I've never known what to do with, but they get a lot of light. I'll give something like this a try and keep you posted!
Finally, go BIG! Sometimes, less is more. If you have the space, go for impact with a larger piece. My mom used to have a GI-NOR-MOUS coffee tree, but I've seen some striking palm too. Whatever is in these 2 photos... I like!
