Look of the Week: House Plants

Big or small, we are huge proponents of house plants! Having fresh, green, living things in your home adds life, cheer, and cleaner air - what's  not to love? Here are some inspiration photos to get you started, beginning with this clever hanging pot.
A windowsill "garden".. good for city-dwellers.

Myrtle topiaries are so cool.... but a bit higher maintenance than many others.

A great example of how plants add "life" to a room.

 Succulents are quite versatile, but work especially well in a modern setting.

We are not sure what this is, but isn't it amazing? A large-scale plant in a cool container can be an incredible accent in a home.

And for those of you who insist that you really, really can't seem to keep a house plant alive, then maybe an adorable knitted cactus will do :)
