It Ain’t Easy Being Green

I recently bought my first plant and I think all new plant-moms would agree that it’s kind of a big deal. I in no way have a green thumb so if any of you have any tips, feel free to comment or email me! My mom, aunt, grandmother and great grandmother all had and have plants in their home so I’ve come to associate lots of house plants with lots of love. Featured in the 1st photo is the tiny succulent I purchased. I love succulents and figured I’d start small…smaller plants seem less intimidating to me haha. I’ve put together some of my favourite images showcasing indoor plants and I’m noticing that cacti are becoming super popular–especially in Scandinavian-inspired interiors. I think I know what my next plant will be…

Swedish Apartment with a touch of Mid-Century

There’s nothing not to love about this apartment. It offers a desperate dose of color during these dreary February days and the use of bold patterns and prints really gives the space personality. The apartment has been designed to maximize space–a lot of the storage is off the ground and the hallway doubles as a work space thanks to a narrow desk and sleek shelving.

Scandinavian Style in St. Petersburg

We’re traveling to St. Petersburg, Russia for this home tour! This modern apartment is given a nordic flair due to scandinavian decor. The large pendants above the dining table are from Muuto (I’ve been on a Muuto kick lately, they can do no wrong!) and many of the other kitchen accessories are from the Danish brand, Ferm Living. The use of plywood in the kitchen is a cool way to define and separate the dining area without disrupting the open flow of the space and I love how it adds warmth to the all-white kitchen. Another standout is the bold black sketches hung in a few of the rooms–adds such a unique touch!
