Bringing The Outside In

Interesting planters and trees make for interesting rooms. Here are a few room designs sure to inspire your inner green-thumb.


One of the things on our list (which, by the way is getting very long) for the new apartment/office is an indoor tree. We love the idea of bringing a little nature into our space and a great pop of green. Plus, we have the perfect corner to put it in! This is an image from Lonny magazine of Anna Burke’s apartment and her fiddle-leaf fig tree. The fiddle-leaf fig tree seems to be a popular choice for many people’s homes. We’re wondering if it is its constitution of just the way it looks?

In the most recent issue of Lonny, we loved the basket this tree was put into and how it really pops off of all the white in this house.

We wonder if lemon trees are more difficult to take care of indoors? Any arborists among us?

Here are a few of the containers we’re thinking to use as planters for our future tree.

Have you found any interesting planters for these types of trees? And which trees have you found thrived best? We’re still debating between a ficus and a fiddle-leaf fig tree. Also, for those of you who travel a lot of just aren’t the most green-thumbed, there’s this website that sells some pretty believable looking faux trees here.
