Houseplants are easy to decorate with and when you mix in topiaries with their architectural presence, you can really pack a decorating punch in any room. Lately I’ve found myself drawn to greenery … some of my recent finds are more money than I’d like to spend and others are a bargain. Surprisingly, I don’t necessarily like the more expensive ones better, which is typically the case.
This topiary circle in a mossy clay pot was a recent find at our local flea market. I think I love the little pot as much as the plant itself. I need to remember to give this guy a haircut from time to time so it doesn’t get wild.
Another recent find is this ironstone covered dish I recently won in an Ebay auction. I’ve been having lots of luck finding beautiful ironstone pieces online … both on Ebay and Etsy. I’m stockpiling so I’ll have something to put on my kitchen shelves when they’re hung.
The new buffet decor provides a good backdrop for a St. Patrick’s Day lunch with Spring Green Soup.
Above the buffet on a metal shelf is a Myrtle topiary. Myrtle is a great plant for sculpting like this. I was told by the lady at the flea market that the moss on the clay pot occurred naturally in the greenhouse. I was certain it had been treated with a moss mixture but she assured me it had not. Laying on its side next to the Myrtle tree is a bright green fern moss.
Our dining room light fixture is captured in the reflection of a vintage mirror. When I redecorated the dining room, I painted this light fixture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White. I love the detail of the ceiling.
Decorating with plants is so easy to do. Combine pricey topiaries with less expensive, everyday house plants for an interesting mix. Next up, I’m going to try some of those fun air plants I’ve been seeing all over. What are some of your favorite indoor plants?
