I don’t know about you but for me this plant thing is really taking hold. I was looking at a picture of my kitchen the other day and thought it looked really stark and then I realised because it was an old one taken before the fiddle leaf fig took up residence.
The Mad Husband says we have reached plant limit now (I’m not sure about that but I’m not picking a fight about it just yet – I may have other situations I need to win first) but I do find at the moment that a plant does seem to add the perfect finishing touch.
Generally speaking, I’m not a fan of small plants either. I like large and lush and jungly. But then I saw these and thought they would be perfect to hang in a group – instead of a picture for example. We currently have a bare wall in the library where we are waiting to reach agreement on what should hang there. I’m pretty sure it won’t be a living wall of plants but a girl can dream.
And for those of you who think you will kill plants don’t forget the fake. I’m going to do a post on these soon and have a look at all the faux that are out there and see what looks good. As long as you remember to dust or sponge down I think you could probably recreate this look with some fakes.
But you know what would be really good? A few of these on a kitchen wall filled with herbs – pretty and practical – now what will He find to say about that I wonder?
These ceramic wall planters are from westelm and cost £16 for the 10cm wide and £24 for the 15cm. Buy as many as you can afford. Five or six does look really good – basil, thyme, chives, mint and parsley will all be happy inside. Excellent, I seem to have totally talked myself into this. Now to select the right kitchen wall…
