Frankly, It’s Mostly Plants

Hello everyone! I few posts ago, I mentioned that I moved, and today I thought I’d share some pictures of how I decorated. It’s a work in progress, but I’m pretty happy so far. It’s mostly just my desk still unpacked in and shambles, so I won’t show ya’ll that 🙂

Instead, I’ll show you all the many, many plants. I didn’t quite realize how much of my decor was plants until I was reviewing the pictures…

Anyway, there’s a wonderfully sunny ledge that is home to four pots, with more on the way. I painted two of them, the white and green ones, and left two plain. I wanted some interest without looking busy, and I like the result.004 (2)You can barley see the philodendron closest to the wall behind the giant spider plant, but its vines drape down the other side of the wall wonderfully.

Related to philodendrons are pothos, and of course I have one of them too! Here it is in a novelty fish planter to create a visual divide between kitchen and living area:008 (2)So cute! I do love my fish friend! Speaking of fish, and therefore water, you use the most water in a bathroom. So here’s that set up! (or some of it…I’m not going to subject anyone to a close-up of my toilet…)017Well, would you look at that! Another pothos! Also, an Audubon print. He’s one of my favorite artists, so I was delighted to find that this picture fit so perfectly in the space!

I’ve also hung some original art. I have eventual plans for a gallery wall of sorts, interspersed with shelves, but as we haven’t got the shelves yet, I’m sticking to just one: a portrait of my childhood cat, Dickens.009Now, I know I mentioned that my desk area is not fully unpacked, and it’s not, but I did install a fintorp rail system from Ikea so at least I have access to all my writing implements and such.018And of course there’s another spider plant! You can also catch a glimpse of my arrow leaf, in a nice blue pot.

Finally, here’s some plant free areas. First, my jewelry storage/wall art. My dad made the earring holder for me, ’cause I’m a very lucky daughter. The towel rack for necklaces was a pinterest idea that I actually acted on. I wear my necklaces so much more now that they’re easily accessible.001And then on the windowsill catty-corner, I have a few of my favorite geologic specimens. The morning sun catches the crystal ones, and it’s lovely.003Does petrified wood count as a plant? ‘Cause if it does, there’s a plant here too…

Also, totes know I said “finally” a few pics ago, but of course there’s one more place with plants. There’s one lonely stretch of narrow wall, almost a column, so I hung a number of lightbulbs that I refashioned as vases so I can have cut plants as well as all my potted ones!014So, upon reflection, my decorating style is just all the plants. (And I actually didn’t even show all of them off…) But plants are awesome and bring life into a place.

How about you? Anyone else have a ton of plants? Or just a ton of anything that ends up defining your living space?
