PATIENTLY PLANTED

... Most of you are thinking "it doesn't, we're in the dead of winter!" Here in Minneapolis, were in what they call "a deep freeze"... I call it "the ice age". While everything outside is frozen, a little life indoors can bring in a renewed sense of spring being right around the corner. I have long dreamed of a perfectly planted corner of my home, where I can grow some fresh herbs to cook with, some beautiful flowers to look at, and just a little greenery to freshen up the surroundings...


 a dream come true to me.. the simplicity of white with punchy and pretty orange trees.


those perfectly planted little corners.



the look of bulbs in a wide glass vase has such a contemporary feel. plant a few tulips, or paperwhites around your home for a look that lasts beyond a week!


the idea of a center entryway table with a statement plant is super stunning.


fig leaf trees are so beautiful. their large and textured leaves can't be beat...

Plants make everything better. I look at them and they make me happy. Plus, they do good things for the air. It's been said that plants in a home make for a happy home and I completely agree. What I would give though for a lemon tree in my house! I say, when we move out of the apartment and into the home we're currently looking for - I'm getting one!

Loooove the bulbs in the glass bowl. I always loved big glass terrariums.

I love having plants around the home, adding a touch of green is always lovely. However I am so bad at looking after them; I just had the most beautiful orchid die, so I probably shouldn't get anymore!

I unfortunately don't have a green thumb and everything I plant always dies. I sure wish I did!

Oh this is such a unique and fun way to dress up your home. Who would have thought! The last photo is so cool too, the way the trees frame the room, it makes me feel like I'm in a treehouse :)
