Shape a thyme plant into a modern topiary form. Paired with the pine box holder, the look feels rustic. And such a tall plant creates a fun design element.
Green herbs on the counter soften the bold look of the bright orange island and cabinets in this sleek modern kitchen, making the room feel more homey.
Rosemary is so easy to grow and is so fragrant. Just be sure it gets some sun while you have it indoors. Wrapped in burlap tied with twine, it looks like it's in the kitchen of a Paris apartment.
Talk about tasteful: the only greenery to be seen in this chic living room is a tightly trimmed thyme topiary tree in front of the window. The potted herb brings something fresh and alive to the room without taking away from the inherent masculinity of the furnishings. And the green of the plant matches the green of the blanket, a nice, harmonious choice.
Function trumps form here, with pots of herbs stashed along side bottles of wine while an Italian feast is just waiting to be cooked up. One can achieve a similar look by taking cut bunches of the herbs, putting them in water, and using them for a few days.
Modern take on the herb garden: This watering basin for growing herbs allows you to start with seeds and experience the satisfaction of sprouting green.
GIve a window box like this as much sun as you can through fall and winter. I love the idea of putting it an unexpected, slightly more formal environ from time to time. For example, try this in your dining room in exchange for a typical arrangement.
The three potted plants complement the putty-and-white color scheme of this sleek open-shelved kitchen corner.
Orchids bloom over a long time, and this one gets added interest from succulents planted at its base. This whole tablescape feels artistic, and the floral/succulent addition has a sculptural aesthetic.
This is really innovative: succulent plants growing in dish-like pots placed casually on the floor. The minimalistic bed and overall vibe of the room is enhanced by these plants. The key to get the look right is finding plants and containers large enough to look intentional.
The tree branch base on the coffee table has so much going on that it seems the only floral choice that would be easy on the eye would be a succulent plant, such as a blue-gray agave in a neutral, stone-color container.
There's so much color here that seasonal flowers would most likely compete or clash with the scheme. A grouping of succulents, however, is a living, organic accessory that complements the bright choices.
Instead of the usual group of sunflowers and mums, consider decorating with small pots of succulents that will last through winter. These cry for a kitchen window, but also would be a accent for your coffee table from time to time.
