A Little Nature Indoors

For the last couple of months, I've been noticing a trend: indoor gardens popping up everywhere. It's a great way of bringing the outside in your home in a very simple, but beautiful way. West Elm just came out with an updated high style, low maintenance collection of beautiful vessels, designed by extremely talented style director Shane Powers. He created four different kinds of containers, each with a specific function: hand blown glass bubbles for air plants, tall glass jars for floating water plants, Greek and Roman-inspired clay forms for cut flowers and a modular three-tiered mini-garden for cactus and succulents. What's incredible is that no soil is needed in this new concept for the indoor garden. I just love everything Shane does. 

In this video, you can watch Shane Powers sharing his vision for this divine collection. Enjoy!

I've also been seeing this trend at some of the design shows - noteably at Dutch Design Week. I've done a post on it although mine are a little more conceptual than the ones you've noted here.
Please please pop a link to your blog on my comments!
thanks!
