Bring nature indoors with a trio of easy-care plants that display striking foliage and textures in an earthy container. Shown here are jade plant, Fittonia, and variegated croton. Artfully arrange outdoor finds around the planter for a pleasing tabletop arrangement.
With intriguing shapes and an array of colors, easy-care succulents add life to any tabletop. Bring the feel of an outdoor garden to the table by imitating planted rows with plaster planters cast in drywall mud troughs. Spray-paint them an earthy color and then fill. For these, we added kalanchoe, Echeveria ‘Pearl of Nuremberg’, and Echeveria affinis.
African violets bring life to a room. Easy to grow, they thrive in medium to bright indirect light. Varieties shown are ‘Rita,’ ‘My Love,’ and ‘My Desire.’ Magnify their appeal by planting in white-painted pots and framing delicate blooms with a petite greenhouse. This open-air version requires no panels -- just glue together wood pieces, paint it, and let the sun shine in.
Sleek and Chic
