Get creative with greenery

I’m a huge fan of adding greenery and indoor plants to one’s home to bring in some life and colour. I’m sure you are too and these days there are just so many creative ways to do this. If you’re a fan of DIYs, you can try your hand at creating hanging rope holders, a hanging string garden or your own unique pots. Choosing quirky containers for your plants is a simple and easy way to add some interest.

Choosing the right plant for your space is key, so take some time and do a bit of research before you start buying your plants. Of course you can also display simple flower arrangements in unusual vases and bottles for a quick fix. You’ll find loads more inspiration over on the Urban Jungle pinterest board.

    Beautiful post. I love bringing in greenery in my home, but at the moment all my plants are in the sunniest space during winter.

      Thanks Nadia! Sadly our home is rather dark so I can’t really go crazy with indoor plants. Our stoep has to be the designated area. Looking forward to your workshop in August! x
