I don’t have a green thumb. Every time I try to keep plants indoors, it doesn’t work out like I hoped. While I like the idea of having plants here and there, the reality for me is I wind up with sad pots filled with dirt–once the body of the deceased has been disposed of. But it’s a given that one sure fire way of incorporating nature into your interiors is with indoor plants, so here’s a very brief look at a few stylish examples of that:

Black, White & Grey

This event space is a mix of industrial and traditional with a black, white, and grey palette; it’s quite handsome. The charcoal colored pot with the impressive cactus is nice.

Here’s that same palette again, but in a Stockholm apartment; this time the plants are potted in neutral-hued containers.

I like the deep green of the cactus here. | japanesetrash.com

The deep green of this cactus is delightful among the neutrals on this table photographed by Anders Schonnemann.

Concrete Containers

Rough Fusion (or roughfusion? I’ve seen it both ways) would be where I would turn if I wanted containers for indoor plants. He made these two and has stores on Etsy and Scoutmob.

Over the past four years, I’ve posted only a few images of the quintessential British furniture piece, the Chesterfield Sofa, but each one is worth revisiting because each one — and each interior style shown — is different in some way. And that sort of tells the tale of the Chesterfield in a nutshell: it’s the “goes anywhere” ubiquitous item. Let’s take a look:

Rustic Industrial

The  rough and smooth textures in this rustic industrial space, along with all the brown tones, combine to be the perfect setting for a Chesterfield. This one is skirted and has a tight tufted seat.

Contemporary

What’s cozier than a Chesterfield by the fire? This sofa, with exposed caster legs and three loose seat cushions, looks perfectly at home in this contemporary decor.

Brutalist

A terrific red Chesterfield looks right at home in this amazing Brazilian Brutalist space.

Ready to get your own Chesterfield sofa but not sure where to look? The only place I would turn to would be Roger+Chris; their Higgins Chesterfield can be ordered in literally hundreds of configurations. Here are a few of my favorites:
