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.

Stylish in Stockholm. | japanesetrash.com

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.

The experiment of focusing a week’s worth of Japanese Trash content around one topic is continuing this week with posts on interior design inspired by nature. Or bringing nature into your interiors. Or just the general idea of incorporating nature. It’s a broad theme, and I’m looking at it from multiple directions, such as:
