home: found this [ planter ]
This gorgeous planter on stand from Made would make a great feature – piled high with greenery, plants trailing down its brass container, even a splash of colour with flowers would be beautiful. Definitely a statement piece and lovely way to have a little indoor garden. It would also work well to house an indoor herb array… find a sunny spot in the kitchen to have close at hand.
It also comes in pure black but on this occasion we think the black and brass is a beautiful mix and would perfectly set off the green leaves.

January is all about new projects and hiding from the cold, and making crafty projects.
Introduce some indoor (or outdoor) gardening to your home but instead of just buying planters and pots – look to use, upcycle, recycle and make your own alternative containers and stands for your planting.
There’s great tutorials from favourites A Beautiful Mess and Brit & Co but there’s lots of easy projects without tutorials.
Search for unusual containers – cups, buckets, tins, old crates, bags or even tea pots. Depending on what you choose to plant your chosen container may need to have drainage holes. Then you can think about creativity with paints, sprays, varnishes or if the item has vintage charm it might look great as it is.
Look at trends in colour and pattern for inspiration and use masking to create designs on the outside – try geometric , stripes or colour blocking. Techniques including drip, dip and ombré may be a little more challenging but have great results too.
