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.

Inspiration Monday: Gertrude Jekyll Gardens

Sorry for the very late start to inspiring you today – I cannot seem to get anything right this morning/afternoon! I’m going to brush that off and get started with a little inspiration. For some of us, spring has been teasing. Here in Atlanta, all of the daffodils and cherry blossoms are in full bloom, but there were teeny tiny snow flurries this morning. Perhaps we could all use “The Secret” and start planning our gardens to speed things up again. O.K. I’m kidding, I think “The Secret” is really cheesy, but I’ll roll with it.

Gertrude Jekyll was a brilliant English garden designer. She was a master at applying color theory to the composition of gardens. I have this book by Richard Bisgrove, where he has combed through thousands of her plans (there are very few remaining Jekyll gardens as she passed away in 1932) and reinterpreted them. Here are just a few examples of how you can plan out beautiful color combinations in your garden. Oh, and here’s a link to the book, The Gardens of Gertrude Jekyll by Richard Bisgrove. If you like to have a few garden tomes to flip through for inspiration around your home, this one is a must-buy for your library.
