When nature is your first love.
We’ve been seeing lots of indoor and outdoor plants making their appearance on social media during this lockdown period. So we decided to shine some spotlight on the accounts that have been a treasure trove of inspiration and have been giving us some good vibes. Here’s how you could also bring the wild glory of nature to your living room or even window boxes.

In the United Kingdom, two decorators Rose and Caro have set themselves the task of transforming London interiors with a purifying avalanche of greenery. The two trowel-wielding wizards have also shared their advice in a couple of books including the much noted “House of Plants: Living with Succulents, Air Plants and Cacti.” Their Instagram account is a mine of inspiration, projects and tips for those of us who may not have been blessed with green fingers.
Pampa creates with flowers what feel-good movies bring to the cinema. In their battle with dreary living space, the weapon of choice for this crack team of Parisian florists is color. Imagine salvos of glorious color and cascades of color, which could not be more welcome in these gloomy times. They also have dried flowers and a range of decorative objects that complement the exuberant and multicolored world they bring to life with plants.
Calling the shots on this four-hands account are Igor Josifovic in Munich and Judith de Graaf in Paris, two plant-obsessed bloggers who have come together from both sides of the Rhine to sing the praises of chlorophyll-loaded living spaces. The duo have also immortalized their wisdom in book form with “Urban Jungle: Living and Styling With Plants” and more recently “Plant Tribe: living happily ever after with plants.”
Another joyful source of color is the American pot maker Hello Happy Plants, which offers a wide range of cement “plant homes” that are crafted to resemble other everyday objects. Without a doubt, our favorite is this pot designed to mimic a disposable coffee cup.
