For this month’s “out & about” I decided to do something a little different. Instead of physically going into a store and posting about what I find inside, I decided to stick with one area of decor and source those finds in two stores that I have a design crush on: West Elm and CB2. I had wanted to go into West Elm and take some pictures, but this month flew by and I can’t believe it’s already June! This month I’m focusing on planters — big, small, indoor, outdoor — whatever you’re in the market for, I’m sourcing for you. Plus, I’m personally looking for a few outdoor planters to complete my deck remodel and I can’t wait to share the finished product with you guys!
First, let’s take a look at some tabletop planters. Tabletop planters are a great way to bring some greenery into your home and an easy way to decorate any surface. I love small tabletop planters grouped with a framed photo for a quick, easy vignette.
Hanging or Wall Planters
A fun trend in home decor is the use of hanging or wall planters. I love a hanging planter as an alternative to a piece of art. An easy way to incorporate this into your home is in your bathroom. A small hanging or wall planter is a nice option in a small powder bathroom where a piece of artwork may be overwhelming.
Indoor Floor Planters
Floor planters are so versatile. You can use a large floor planter as a focal point in any room or you can use one to fill a corner in your home where a piece of furniture may be too bulky. I also like the idea of using baskets as planters – but make sure to have a plastic tray inside to catch the water!
These are the planters that I’m really on the hunt for. I want to group a few outdoor planters in varying sizes in a corner of my deck and fill them with various flowers and greenery for a pretty, striking visual. I will definitely feature it on the blog once I get it done!
I know this was a little bit of a different spin on my monthly series, but I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed putting it together! Happy shopping!
