Live a little

March 29, 2010

With the plant-attacking foster kittens finally adopted out to a permanent home, my living room was ready to live a little.  I couldn’t wait bring the outdoors in with a small grouping of houseplants.  They’re fresh, they’re cheerful, and you can’t beat having a real live air filter.

This little grouping only set me back 20 bucks, pots and all, during my last trip to Ikea.  And let me tell you, they seem to really be enjoying the little bit of sunlight they get in that window.  I wanted an interesting grouping of textures, so I paired the spiky leaves of the aloe with a small bushy plant and the taller braided tree.  I really like how it turned out.

Ahhh, that bright dose of green really does keep things cheerful.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for gardening season.  These guys will tide me over until then.

    I think the fabric will definitely work nicely in a light grey/white room. It would look even better if the walls were a medium grey with crisp white trim!

    I have no clue what that third frondy plant is! I’m sorry!
    If it helps – I got it at Ikea but I’ve also seen them with the indoor plants for sale at Home Depot. . .
