Nic Brown from Huis & Tuin writes on bringing the outdoors indoors creating easy green garden life in the home!
Its time to dust off those cacti and succulents again with a focus on indoor plants coming to the forefront of styling and interior design. A modern quirky spin is key with ways to display these little beauties.
Ive always had a soft spot for succulents and cacti, with their modern minimalist shapes, colours and textures. I love the differing shades of juicy greeny blues and spiny organic shapes that open up endless creative solutions on how to display and style them.
Large desert style cacti in glorious painted or fabric covered pots, fine handblown glass hanging off wire that hold crazy little plants that live off air.
Tiny little terrariums under glass that can resemble fantasy fairy lands, there is something to suit any style and taste.
Minimal styling in an all white interior or to mass planting in bright vintage pots and various found objects for an eclectic look, there is usually some kind of story behind each one.
Succulents and Cacti are a great way to encourage kids and self confessed plant killers to experiment with their green thumbs without too much disappointment. They are so easy to care for and can mostly survive by being “Treated Mean and Kept Keen” motto. They multiply at a rate where you end up giving them away and make fabulous, affordable handmade and stylish living presents.
