Aside from colour and pattern, PLANTS play a very important role in my design philosophy. Plants add colour and life to interior spaces and my Jungalow would not be complete without them. Though terra cotta pots are all well and good, here are seven surprising ways to decorate your home with plants. For more inspiration, visit my Plantastic collection!
1. Vertical Gardening
Add some woolly pockets to a vintage frame and voila! You have yourself a vertical garden and a great conversation piece for the room.
2. Hang it
Maybe not unexpected, but definitely one of the most attractive ways to display a plant. I've been collecting bentwood vintage plant hangers like this mid-century one for years and besides serving its purpose by holding your plant, it adds sculptural beauty to any space.
3. Window Shelves
Have a small kitchen that needs a little more life? Put a few floating shelves inside the window frame and add sun loving plants, plus display your favourite cups.
4. Repurpose An Old Dresser
Before you put that old dresser out on the curb, you may want to consider using it as a planter. The small drawers in this apothecary cabinet are perfect for planting little succulents and definitely add some magic to a living room.
5. Egg Cups
It's time to scour your grandma's cupboards and give new life to egg cups. I like to plant tiny succulents in these and display them on shelves or in my kitchen. I love the little faces on these ones!
A refreshing beverage AND a planter, you say? The next time you drink fresh coconut, hold on to the shell! They are super durable and serve as great pots for little plants. I love this painted one!
7. Wooden ladder
If your old rickety ladder is no longer safe to climb, it will make a lovely addition to your patio. Stain or paint the wood and you've got yourself a beautiful new plant shelf that adds depth to any space.
