Blog 16 - Plants!

Plants!

12/06/18

 

Following on from my blog about about my favourite interior stylist Hans Blomquist, I wanted to write about my love of plants in interiors.

I love plants, flower and anything in nature and have always been drawn to the colour green, so naturally I like to fill my house with plants.

I am no good at keeping them alive, but I love the short while when they are flourishing.

Plants are perfect for purifying the air and are proven to improve peoples moods, especially in office and other work environments, so why not litter my home with them?

There are also a few images from pinterest of a huge amount of plants in interiors, that I wish my home could accommodate!  

An abandoned rugby social club in Lower Compton. I love the decay of the building and the contrast against the surrounding green plant life.

This photograph was taken at Cotswold wildlife park for my friends birthday. The animals were great but the greenhouse full of cacti was a highlight of the day for me.

The two photos above and below are taken by myself. I am always inspired in new places in nature and I am always found snapping pictures of plants and trees.

This photo was taken while having a picnic with my partner. I love the contrast with the sun behind the trees. The different shades of green shown as different parts were lit by the sun.

This photo was also taken at the Costwold wildlife park. I love the blue, pink, green and yellow in this shot.

 

Pinterest is such a good location to find inspiring images. My board include abstract paintings that inspire me, great interior design and architecture, and plants.

I have included three of my favourite images from my plants board that I am most inspired by.

 I love the dark theme in this room and the combination of a brown natural look work surface and stool with oversized plants and glass.

 This hipster looking living space is filled with cactus and bold fabric prints so what's not to love?

 Although I do not like the chairs too much, I love the texture gained from the wild hanging plants in the foreground and all over the bookcase on the back wall.
