NYC-based plant design/delivery service The Sill runs one of my favorite Instagram accounts, a great collection of primarily indoor plant inspiration photos. I hadn’t checked out their blog until recently, though, and it turns out it’s a pretty great resource for both plant care and interviews with cool plant people. Now that I’m trying to be a cool plant person, I feel like I should be paying attention to this stuff.
Anyway, last night I read this great interview with the creators of the Urban Jungle Bloggers project, Igor Josifovic and Judith de Graaff. I’d never heard of Urban Jungle Bloggers before! What a super cool site. I wound up going from blog to blog to blog (including Little Green Fingers, home to the GORGEOUS plants in the photo at the bottom of this post), checking out everyone’s cool plant photos…and eventually feeling a deep sense of plant inadequacy. Today, though, I have a renewed sense of excitement about wanting to continue overloading my home with plants (and I don’t mean more of these—not that there anything wrong with that), and to that end, I am ready to pick out some cute new pots and planters to put them in.
Currently on my wishlist…
1. Pottery Lodge / Black & White Planter
2. Pottery Lodge / Spiky Hanging Planter
3. CB2 / Chunky White Block Planter
4. Assembly Home / Jada Mini Planters
5. 4040 Locust / Beach House Terrarium
6. Rider Designs / Mini Succulent Planter
1. Anne Nilsson for IKEA / Mandel Plant Pots
2. Boxwood Tree / Icosahedron Glass Terrarium
3. Leah Ball / Black & Pink Hanging Planter
4. Schoolhouse Electric / Mini Planter
1. Urban Outfitters / Mod Metal Planters
2. Fox & Ramona / Concrete Planter
3. Frae + Co. / Concrete Macrame Hanging Planter
4. The Object Enthusiast / Faceted White & Gold Planter
I LOVE that Leah Ball planter!
Have you seen these concrete hanging planters from Target?
I bought three of them in gold. The pictures on the site don’t do them any justice. This picture is better:
That’s really nice, Tracey!! I’ll keep an eye out next time I’m at Target. Thanks!
Oh, and these are cute and ridiculously inexpensive too. 🙂
What’s that cool black candle in the first pic? Thanks!
Caroline, it’s a DUME (Death Unto My Enemies) candle. You can buy them at hoodoo/folk magic shops.
I’ve been feeling exactly the same way about plants! More, please! And I just love Judith, she’s the best. Might be time to finally join in on the project since I’d like to green up my apartment as well…
Thanks for these recommendations! I’m so in love with the Fox & Ramona concrete planters. Swoon.
I love your plant related posts, they always make me green with plant envy, thanks for sharing these links, I really appreciate posts with recommended blogs and sites.
I love plants – and can’t wait to have a space to decorate!
I’ve got my eyes on a tonne of hanging planters, my friend makes some really beautiful ones – she’s super talented, so if you’re interested: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ScoutGathers
btw I adore that candle! Need to get one of those into my glory box!
I was so inspired by this post I went and bought some teeny little succulents and cactuses (which took me back to my childhood as my Grandmother liked them) and placed them around my studio.
Thanks for the post.
That’s sweet, Lorrie. 🙂
Where did you get those gold/brass candlestick holders in the first photo? I have seen them in photos on your blog before and have searched for ones just like them and can’t seen to find them. Thank you!
Hi Ashley! They came from H&M’s home line a couple of years ago. I just checked, and incredibly…they still have them!
