Some of us are not born green fingered it seems (or maybe I should be speaking of myself only?), but that all changed when our lives were introduced to the world of succulents and cacti. Nearly indestructible (although, ahem, i am still known to have still killed a few), these little (and sometimes not so little) plants don't need much water or sun and will happily spend time anywhere in your home.
Looking their best in groups, here are my favourite pots to showcase real or faux plants right now. Just to get things straight from the start, this is not a sponsored post, all products shown below are my own picks. Enjoy!
Every house needs weaved baskets and I use similar regularly for the laundry, veggies, odd socks, you name it! You can even buy the smaller ones and make your own DIY hamper gifts for Christmas!
The three Baskets above (£150 Cox and Cox) are woven from natural seagrass with a contrasting green weave pattern with a natural linen lining, and are perfect for storing your essentials or displaying your favourite potted houseplants.
When I received my first Cox and Cox catalogue some two years ago, I knew that this was a really special shop. Although at the time they were more focused on Scandi interiors, they have since evolved and now cater for a variety of styles, including my very own 'eclectic mix'.
The traditional Moroccan style belly basket below features a black striped and geometric pattern on a natural background, with two slender handles for carrying. Perfect for your little cheese plant, right?
Standing pots are BIG - I mean huge! - right now, and this beauty will put you back £120 (Cox and Cox) but it's so worth it! With a striking golden brass finish and four stained mango wood legs, this statement planter will make a feature of your favourite houseplant and add a decorative accent to your space. At 52cm high it is generous in proportions too for this Monstera Deliciosa!
Insider tip: You can also find this pot here for £108! You're welcome.
If you like all things shiny, you will love this next one from Miafleur.com. This hammered brass pot comes in two sizes starting at £29.99. Their beautiful beaten effect gives a slightly distressed finish, and the black inside, makes a striking contrast to the lustrous gold finish.
Miafleur have featured a lot in the press recently, they source fabulous products because they have great taste (and did you know they have even launched their own furniture range? Velvet!!). You can always depend on them to fill your interiors cravings! Even quirky stuff like this golden dolls head pot which will make the perfect addition to your desk!
Or, why not try something with a bit of glaze! Like this peacock pot with markings in the glaze in soft blue and purple that are reminiscent of the pattern on peacock feathers.
If ceramics are too serious for you, try something tongue-in-cheek like an enamel pot radiating positive vibes with its "I will survive" logo (£8.50, Rockett St George). Because, accidents happen and plants could stay without water longer than they should (*coughs suspiciously*).
Also from Rockett Saint George are these recycled tyre planters - I love how these look with their rough texture. They would compliment industrial interiors and based on their colour, also work well with Scandi homes.
If you are a fun of smaller plants, try concrete pots that come in a variety of shapes and are also painted. Here are some of my favourites from Bellsandwhistlesmake (from £12).
