On Trend: Plant Walls

On Trend: Plant Walls

I recently visited a friend's home - she's just recently moved with her family to this mid-century modern home. While I loved the layout and overall style, I also love something new that they themselves had added - a wall of open shelving featuring nothing but different types of plants. It's such a cool idea and one that adds a bit of life to any space, even one that's maybe shorter on the square-footage. Plus, there are a lot of ways to execute this idea so it always seems to feel fresh and not overdone, which is not something that can be said for very many trends. I wasn't able to get a picture of her plant wall, but thought I would share some of my other favorites.

I love the mix of greens, neutrals, and blues that's happening in the set up below. The minimal shelving complements the abundance of decor perfectly.

The example below is much more simple, but still beautiful. I especially love the plant on the top shelf that is actually part of the shelf, you can see that there was actually a hole created just for this specific plant - a really great touch.

This plant wall is perhaps a bit more wild than the other two, but I still love it. The variety of plants just makes the space feel so lively and vibrant.
