PLANTERS FOR A MINIMAL HOME

I think it's safe to say that all of us in Britain will be very glad to wave goodbye to Winter and welcome Spring with open arms. Let's just pray there's no more snow that brings the country to a halt, again. I'm certainly ready to feel some sun on my skin again. But with Spring just around the corner, it's got me thinking about plants, both indoor and out - which is what brings me to today's post! Planters for a minimal home.
Indoor plants have been becoming more and more popular over the last few years and the whole urban jungle theme is going nowhere fast, so with that in mind, I've rounded up my favorite planters from Pad Lifestyle that are perfect for a minimal feel.
First up is this absolute show stopper from Design House Stockholm. Not only is this the most gorgeous miniature greenhouse I've ever seen (I say miniature, but it's not mini by any means - but it's a suitable size for indoors).
It's a real feature piece for the home too, available in a dark or natural ash finish. Your guests will be green with envy...get...green with envy ;) This is a great piece especially in our cold country where it's often hard to give younger plants a good start - greenhouses help to protect and nurture plants.
Menu's Wire Plant Pots are available in black or white and in three heights, which gives you the ability to display all types of plants from tall to hanging plants, in different places in the home, from the floor, to worktops, indoors or outdoors. But regardless of where they are on display, these plant pots are smart and sleek. With removable pots, they are practical too.
If you're looking for something for a smaller space, the Grow Terrariums from Design House Stockholm are just the thing. Made entirely from glass, these terrariums will stand out in your home. They're designed to be a nursery for the plant's first stages of life - a great way to germinate your own plants. In fact, I'm working on a 'How to Grow An Avocado Plant' with these exact terrariums over on Lust Living, so stay tuned for that...just waiting for germination!
And finally, Design Letters' fine bone china planters are the perfect way to add a playful Scandinavian design touch to your home and they make a great house warming gift. Featuring the 1937 typography - P for plant - by renowned Danish architect Arne Jacobson - it's monochrome and minimalist.
So which planter is your favorite? Oh and while we are on the topic of plants, airplants are all the rage right now so be sure to check out Pad Lifestyle's no maintenance faux version too!
