February is a fickle month. It often delivers the worst winter weather, with heavy snowfall and below-freezing temperatures, all while teasing the arrival of spring. If you can’t wait for the tulips to bloom, incorporating plants into your home’s decor is a great way to add color, texture and personality. Here we’ve rounded up 10 pots and stands that will inspire you to go green.
1. Solid walnut wood planters from Dot & Bo, $67
No green thumb? No problem. This three-piece planter set was made for succulents. The solid walnut wood is accented by a bold, orange hue. It would be a welcome addition to any windowsill, coffee table or home office.
2. Triceratops planter from Etsy, $22
This planter is an easy DIY project (peep this video tutorial), but if you’d rather leave the crafting to the experts at Etsy, you can purchase this golden triceratops with an air plant included.
3. Trigg small wall vessel from Umbra, $35
Plants can help to make a cramped condo or apartment feel more homey. Free up precious counter and floor space with these wall-mounted concrete resin vessels. The three-dimensional diamond shape and copper wire frame lends an ultra-modern feel.
4. Indoor/outdoor plant stand from IKEA, $24.99
Put your plants on a pedestal with this three-tiered stand from the PS 2014 collection. While the overall design is minimalist, it adds visual interest to a space by drawing the eye upward.
5. Faceted black vases from Lulu & Georgia, $15 – $75
Geometric planters are super trendy — but this one has staying power. With a three-dimensional pentagon shape and black matte finish, the piece is entirely versatile. Use it to adorn a dining room table, fireplace mantle or decorative tray.
6. Carved teak branch planter from Terrain, $58 – $88
This sustainably-harvested planter looks like a piece of weathered driftwood. It’s perfect for showcasing succulents and drop-in plants.
7. Galvanized plant stand from Target, $34.99
This multifunctional stand has an industrial look, with galvanized sheet metal and gold hardware. The two-tiered organizer can be used to store plants, kitchenware or even office supplies.
8. Sahel wall planter from Anthropologie, $42
Rhinos and hippos, and elephants, oh my! Integrate one, or all three, of these ceramic wall planters to add instant character to your home.
9. Eos hanging planter from Urban Outfitters, $39
Seventies-inspired plantscapes are making a comeback. This bowl-shaped hanging planter has a geo wire surround and a yellow gold finish. It’s perfect for small spaces!
10. Novelty terrarium from Wayfair, $29.99
Faceted terrariums have been everywhere lately, but this tear-drop shaped model hangs from a piece of twine. Did we mention it’s on sale? The price has been marked down 40 per cent from $49.99.
