home: favourite thing [ planter ]
Love the Ricky concrete rectangle planter from Danielle Rubino. Available in three colours and ideal as a planter but also makes good storage for other items.
The premise of starting my business was to create small pieces of artwork, which are accessible to anyone. Throughout art school I worked with concrete . I have always been drawn to the material because of its high compressive strength, durability and industrial aesthetics. I wanted to project the idea of stability and support. I believe once you have some form of stability, support and structure this can provide the basis for progression, development and growth.

home: made [ kokedama plant ]
This simple diy project combines the popularity of indoor hanging plants and the new trend for Japanese inspired homes.
Kokedama meaning ‘moss ball’ is a Japanese form of hanging plants by creating balls of soil covered in moss. These unique hanging plants look amazing in groups if you have the space.
They are very easy to create, all you will need is your choice of plant, soil, sheet moss and string, and you are good to go.
We have a couple of tutorials for you to follow.

With all the style and silhouette of classic midcentury design and ticking the trend box for metallics, these indoor planters from Mia Fleur are a beautiful piece of homeware.
Fill with real or faux planting to bring the outdoors in. Head to Rockett St George for great faux planting.
home: found this [ paper pots ]
Over the last couple of years a new trend has taken over when it comes to bringing plants into the home. Among the usual ceramic pots to put them in, baskets and boxes have grown in popularity as well as paper pots. We have spotted these gorgeous versions from Oohh at Room365. Part of their new collection these pots are 100% waterproof, made from recycled paper.
‘Danish in design and inspired by nature and the environment these fairtrade, handmade pots have a truly unique edge to them’

home: made [ hanging plant shelf ]
We found another lovely short and easy project from the clever folks at A Beautiful Mess.
With the popularity of hanging plants, and macrame holders, we thought this hanging plant shelf would be another great make.
You only need a staple gun, thin rope/string and some kind of wooden plate – a circle of wood cut at a local wood store, a top of a stool, a wooden plate or even a chopping board.
This simple tutorial from A Beautiful Mess will guide you through this easy project. The hanging shelf would make a great gift, would work well hung in a pair or trio (at different levels) and if you are adept at macrame – it could be combined!
