Finally we can celebrate our house plants again. Long were they out - too long! Especially in very modern and architecturally clearly designed interiors, there was no single plant for a long time. But in recent years, the trend has changed! The seedlings are very stylish today and present themselves perfectly.
Finally, there are great planters with and without water storage, beautiful hanging staff and chic plant shelves. Thanks local designers from around the world, who are significantly involved in the trend of the new plant love, there are again many green interiors.
It was rock bottom for me. Overflowing with rage, I stumbled towards the freshly installed cable unit with my sledgehammer raised. Revenge was imminent. I was finally going to show AT&T who’s boss.
“Those things have a lot of electricity in ’em” shouted my electrician neighbor from across the yard. I collapsed on the grass trembling in frustration. Exhausted from the barrage of conflict over the past several weeks, I was having a breakdown. “Is revenge on AT&T worth dying for?” I pondered as flashbacks of my two month relationship with the cable company raced through my head. I faded from consciousness.
Our relationship had begun with so much hope and anticipation. I was finally getting over a tumultuous affair with Comcast and was ready for a fresh start. But things had soured quickly.
The internet didn’t work from day one. They wouldn’t fix it, but they wouldn’t let me out of my contract either. After 342 hours on the phone (mostly on hold), the cable stopped working, they over-billed me again, and the internet was still out. Frustration and helplessness led me to dedicate an entire week to meeting with consumer attorneys. I told them I would devote unlimited time and money to do whatever it takes to bring justice to these bastards. Nobody would take my case.
Armed with my phone, a 12-pack and a wide open Saturday afternoon, I hit speed dial to get AT&T back on the line. “This time I’m going to talk to a real manager,” I convinced myself.
It was about that time when the utility truck pulled up. With “on-hold” music streaming through my ear buds, I watched in disbelief as five muscular men pulled into the grass and unloaded their shovels. I was frozen as they dug a coffin-sized trench and then planted a giant green shaft right in the middle of my yard.
“Are you going to replace the grass?” was the only full sentence I was able to string together. “Someone else is in charge of that” mumbled one of the guys as he placed an AT&T sticker onto the shaft and drove away.
That was the point where I lost all control. I grabbed my sledgehammer. “The entire neighborhood is about to see me have a meltdown” was the last thought I remember before I woke up face-down in the yard. “Are you alright?” inquired a neighbor standing over me.
“Yes,” I said. “I had a beautiful dream. There was a white light, and then a bushy paradise appeared before me.” He looked shocked to see that all my anger and hatred had dissipated. I sprinted into the house to transcribe the dream. The manifestation of what transpired that day can only be described as a miracle. Bushy Box was created the next day.
We propose a contest around the great trend of the moment, hanging plants! We see them everywhere, right? Personally, I am really seduced by this poetic and ecological idea able to warm the interiors, but also to combine different styles such as bohemian, Scandinavian and Californian retro.
I decided to adopt these air elements at home for a while by making shelves hanging. But I will tell you this in detail soon, because today, I want to introduce you to this beautiful suspension macrame made by Robin Hendriks and Jib Rutnin from the Huizen, The Netherlands. These designers offered me a nice weave a while ago and now they are selling them in their Etsy store. The best thing about these is that you can use this with your existing planters so there's a lot of room to get creative!
When one thinks of plants, the first thing that comes to mind is materials such as terracotta, ceramics and clay. In order to put the plants in a good scene. However, a slightly different trend is increasingly taking hold on the patios and living rooms of amateur gardeners and design lovers: setting the plants in real hollow logs.
So you can see all their beauty that took centuries for Mother Nature to design. And the juxtaposition of a new seedling in a centuries old log can be fascinating. Well-known designers picked up on this idea and designed various real wood planters for plants. The combinations of log designs mixed with various plants and flower designs is endless.
