For a long time, there weren’t many options when it came to pots and planters. These days the possibilities seem endless — they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, heights, colors, materials … heck, some of them even have built-in lamps. Here’s a round up of some of our current favorites.
Cherry_Planter_3.jpgTronk Design Fitzgerald Planter. Available in solid walnut, cherry or maple, this sweet little planter adds an organic touch indoors.

Boskke Cube. We can’t get enough of this revealing cube that shows off the traditional pot. It’s a great modern twist.

Granny had a wicker version of this idea on her porch. The sleek Plant Bos by ferm LIVING has a built-in stand that’s window box size.

Greens Cube Planters by blomus are minimalist boxes are made of stainless steel, adding a gleaming contrast to plant life.

Modernica’s Pot with Stand is a mid-century modern classic that has never gone out of style. The height and warmth brought in by the wooden stands shake up the usual planter game.

Speaking of height, Cane-line’s Skye Big Pot stands at just under three feet high, adding some serious scale to your porch, deck or patio.

These pots add a wonderful glow at night. The Hugo Pots by OFFI serve double-duty as low-voltage lamps you can use outdoors.

Finally, it wouldn’t be a pot and planter roundup without some hangers. The ferm LIVING Plant Hanger comes in several shapes and sizes.

Five Ways to Add Rustic Modern Style

The fact that the nights are cold and dark can make a crisp white contemporary room feel chilly and stark. Taking notes from cozy cabins, add a few rustic textures like walnut, cozy plaid textiles, leather and brass to warm it right up. While rustic cabin style may seem at odds with modern/contemporary rooms, these items combine cozy textures with clean lines and clever design. Here are five favorite rustic modern pieces.

Lights Up! Woody Pendant Lamp. This beautiful pendant adds the textures of a thin wood veneer’s grain and linen, clean modern lines and a warm glow overhead overhead.

Hex_Ottoman_-Tartan_Rouge_02.jpg

Gus Modern Hex Ottoman. The large-scale colorful plaid will add a cozy cabin touch to your modern room. It’s easy to pull around by the handle when you need to move it for extra seating or a place to put your feet up.

CALA-L_WB_4.jpg

Skargaarden Marstrand Candle Lantern. Beautiful caramel-colored leather trimmed out with tacks add rich rustic texture to this simple glass hurricane. Use them on a tablescape or hanging indoors or out.

gentle_reminder_male

Twig Terrarium Gentle Reminder Male. For those who take a close look through the glass at the clever terrariums by Twig, there’s always a fun surprise. In this case, it’s a man holding an I Heart You sign among the stones and moss. A wooden sphere tops it off perfectly.

Wireframe_Coffee_Table03-23.jpg

Gus Modern Wireframe Coffee Table. The mix of deep rich walnut wood and black, powder-coated steel grid framework is a wonderful balance of rustic and modern.

5 Ways to Keep the “Fall Back” Blues Away

While I love the extra hour of sleep in the morning after the fall time change, I really struggle with how early it gets dark out. It’s too dark to get outside for exercise after work and I start to feel like I need one of those little anti-depressive head lamps to keep my mood up. But there are plenty of ways to deal with the early sunsets that don’t involve cumbersome headgear. Use those hours around dinnertime to lighten up your home and perk yourselves up. 08342_lighthink_box_03

1) Lighten things up. Literally. When the natural light tucks itself away for the night, it’s up to you to create layers of light to create a mood. Having one overhead light and nothing else is depressing. Bring out the floor lamps, table lamps, heck, maybe even install some sconces or pendants. Don’t forget spots you may not have thought of, like a small lamp on a shelf or mantel. I like these Lighthink Boxes from Seletti because they have happy messages. They even come with three different panels so you can switch up the colors and words.

2) Bring the life indoors. If you go through gardening withdrawal after that last harvest, do a little bit of indoor gardening. Whether it’s succulents, a large fiddlehead fig, herbs or even those low-maintenance air plants, get some life going on indoors.

3) Swap stuff around. I do this twice a year. If your surroundings are feeling stale, you’ll feel blah. It’s easy to switch things up. Trade some lamps, rugs, side tables/nightstands, objects and artwork around from room to room. Get a few new pillow covers. Put a cheery tablecloth on the table. Create a cool new centerpiece.

4) Just go with it. Use the time inside as an excuse for a little hibernation with those books you haven’t opened up in awhile. Put your PJs or not-so-activewear on, grab a coffee, tea or cocoa and pull down different books for the coffee table on a regular schedule so that you can enjoy them and get re-inspired by them. Go to bed early and get up early to make the most of the earlier sunrise.

5) Crank some tunes. Get your music set up so it’s accessible and easy to get going. Enjoy those songs you forgot you had by putting on random mode or running though your entire music library in alphabetical order, explore some new genres on Pandora, or go old-school and check out this thing you have called local FM radio.
