Perk up those grey spaces with some urban greenery.
As we near winter’s final stretch, we’re aching for a little indoor foliage! From the modern to the mammalian, here are some of our favourite planter picks to help bring in succulents, herbs and flowers to the great indoors.
True Gem. What’s our status? Currently swooning over the Crystal-Cut porcelain planters from Bean and Bailey ceramics. Based on natural crystals and gems, these pretty pastel baskets are a darling place for cradling air plants, succulents and blooms ($51 each). anthropologie.com
New Kids on the Block. There have been several iterations of the wood planter over the years, but few have been as functional as these mix-and-match Nurselog side tables from the newly opened Hinterland. Meant to mimic moss-covered forest stumps, no two Western red cedar cuts are alike—they can even be customized with upholstered seat tops ($1,200 per piece). hinterlanddesign.comLove Triangle. Succulents get sophisticated with the Trigg Wall vase, which features a perfect polished stoneware triangle in a geo-fabulous brass-plated frame ($44.95). cb2.com A Case of the Blues. Beachy blues and paint-dipped bottoms in contrasting neutrals give traditional planters a fresh look. (Carnivale mini planters, starting at $8.95). crateandbarrel.comOn the Wild Side. Animal accessories can border on the kitsch, but in white ceramic the dainty Sahel Wall planters can totally fit in a more sophisticated scene ($56). anthropologie.comInto the Woods. We love how these handblown glass terrarium pots are nestled into a gnarly log to create an indoor nature scene. The wood and glass terrarium series also comes in singles to suit every shelf, ledge or table space (starting at $49). westelm.comMac Attack. Didn’t you know macramé is back? This CB2 version sports a small white geometric planter up top with a bigger metal pot below—all delicately enveloped in a 70s hand-braided weave ($79.95). cb2.com Not-So-Mellow Yellow. Jonathan Adler’s vibrant lemon Okura planter is sure to add a flavour punch to any room, even if you put baby in the corner. Hand-thrown, mod and at-home indoors or out ($1,202). jonathanadler.com
