Wishlist: Plants at Home

18. May 2015

At the weekend I was wearing a skirt without tights for the first time this year. This means: Summer is around the corner! Toni and I planted some new flowers and herbs on our balcony already, but as soon as the warm season comes I also love to buy new plants for our apartment. So here are a few recommendations about how to display plants at home.

DIY Leaf Art by monsterscircus | plants at home
Recently I came across the blog monsterscircus by Mette. You can find a ton of beautiful DIY projects there, mostly inspired by Scandinavian design and craftsmanship. One project that really stood out to me is the DIY Leaf Art. It is getting warmer here every day and as I’m working long hours from my home studio I appreciate anything that is bringing some summer into my apartment as well.

Air plant holder Himmeli by Hruskaa | plants at home
I see air plants all over the internet and now I finally found some in a local flower shop. I think these modern teardrop prism displays them perfectly. In the Hruskaa’s Etsy shop you can find many more variations of the brass air plant holders.

DIY IKEA plant pot Ingefära | plants at home
IKEA has a new plant pot series in stores! It’s called Ingefära, is made from terracotta and has a very minimalistic shape. If you’re not the biggest fan of the terracotta color, don’t worry, it’s super easy to repaint the pots yourself!

Kekkilä plant pot ladder | plants at home
In collaboration with product designer Klaus Aalto, Finnish label Kekkilä has created the white lacquered steel and beech wood Plant Ladder to open up a few more alternatives when it comes to adding a touch of green to our homes.

If you have any other recommendations on how to display plants at home, I would love to know!

      Oh, I know what you’re talking about! Kind neighbors are really helpful if you have plants that need to be watered more often. 😉 What are you studying?

    I love what you’ve done with the Ikea ingefara plant pot, did you spray paint or brush the pot to get it concrete looking?
