A little bit of greenery can make all the difference, am I right?
Perusing my local garden centre and nearby florists has become somewhat of my weekly routine.
From cacti to succulents, ferns to flowers, I cannot have enough plants. They have truly changed the vibe in our flat for the better.
I mean, how could a handmade pot with an aloe mohawk NOT make anyone happy? 🙂
In addition to adopting lonely plants in need of a home, maintaining my herb garden has become somewhat of a hobby. There’s just something so satisfying about topping a caprese salad with home-grown basil. I also love making Spanish or Thai inspired dishes, so coriander is obligated to make a hefty appearance.
Home is where the heart is. Or in my case, home is where my plants thrive.
Which plants are a must in your home decor scheme?
Moving is always a difficult process – but also a very fun one! It’s a chance to make a space your own. I am a huge fan of distressed wood, antiques and family heirlooms. I knew I wanted clean cut lines – a white, charcoal grey and mint color scheme – but with a rustic feel for my brand new room.
This antique trunk is one of my favorite furniture accents of all times. The history of my trunk goes as follows: my mom has had it “since she was a little girl” – and thank goodness. I’m in love. It’s a unique accent to my room, while practical for storage at the same time. So happy you didn’t throw this one out, mom!
I’d have to say my second favorite piece of furniture in my room is my bedside table, which the lovely Ms. Natalie discovered with me at HomeGoods. I love the combination of wood and splashes of color – not to mention how it acts as a perfect stand for vanilla candles, a sisterly love photo and a good book.
Now for the comfy part – my beautiful white Anthropologie Rosette Quilt bedding – equipped with grey, turquoise and mint accent pillows. Although white makes me incredibly nervous – I went for it because I wanted a versatile arrangement just in case I decide to make a spontaneous transition into another color scheme. The grey accent throw, also from HomeGoods, tops it off! I guess my first attempt at making a room “truly mine” wasn’t TOO disastrous 🙂 What’s your home decor style?
