Using large plants as pieces of design

10.15.2014

Since I spent last weekend in Amsterdam, staring at this beautiful specimen while doing my yoga in the morning, I have been obsessed by getting a big plant or a tall cactus for our home and I’ve created a new Urban jungle Pinterest board to keep track of my current obsession…

I love plants…I can’t say I have “green fingers” but depending how strong the plant is, I can just manage to not kill it.
When Lucas was younger, being the gorgeous but boisterous dog he is, it was pointless to have large plant pots indoors as he would only use them to hide his bones and put earth everywhere.

So instead, we got a gorgeous jasmine just outside the glass kitchen door in our garden or a beautiful green bush that stands out beautifully against our newly wall painted black and I always have a few pots of basil in our kitchen to cook.

Here are few interiors with plants that I find very inspiring and which hopefully, will inspire you too…Plants, green, Spring, ‪#‎urbanjunglebloggers, urban jungle http://blog.bodieandfou.com/
