I've been on a plant kick lately. I don't know what about plants, but they make me happy, and therefore I want to surround myself with more plants. I recently went to Flora Grubb Gardens for the first time. I will post pictures of my adventure soon, but for now I want to talk planters.
I didn't find the planters that I wanted there, and wanted to look around before I settled on some. It was hard to find pots that I liked. Nothing looked quite right, or they were sold out or were way out of my budget. I searched all over the internet, but haven't had much luck. If you know of any good planters, please let me know! I think my best bet will be to go to flea markets, and I will also paint some from Ikea.
My most exciting find though has been a company called The Sill. They bring house plants to people in beautiful planters. They seem awesome, and just had a collaboration with my favorite brand, Madewell! You read that right! Madewell is venturing into home decor. I don't know if it's only a one time thing, but I hope it's not![caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1702.0"] Photo from The Sill[/caption]
Of course I fell in love with all of them! I especially want the white and blue striped one as well as the pink ones. I think the blue stripes are fun and calming at the same time.
I also really want this terracotta face planter that's in collaboration with Isaac Nichols.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="480.0"] Photo from The Sill[/caption]
I think all of these planters be the perfect to add to my collection.
Unfortunately, for me, it looks like they only deliver in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I'll just have to dream about them for now, or somehow find a way to get my hands on them. Fingers crossed! Until then, the hunt for cool planters continues.Continue reading
