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

Pistache in Amsterdam. | japanesetrash.com

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.

I don’t know what it is — maybe it has something to do with the time of year — but rooms that feature antlers seem to be popping up everywhere I look. I’ve decided to go with it and feature some of them for you here today. Do you use antlers in your interior decor? Or are you someone who is completely opposed to antlers of any kind as a design element?

All Natural

Loving all the natural elements and textures here. | japanesetrash.com

The natural elements — wood, leather, cane — and smart placement of elements in the space make this an inviting room.

Graphic Impact

Bold graphic impact in this bedroom. | japanesetrash.com

Black and white, a graphic print, a hint of baseball leather, and faux antlers all come together in this bold bedroom.

Rustic Contemporary

Great mix of rustic and contemporary. | japanesetrash.com

The mix of rustic and contemporary styles in this kitchen — especially the dark elements playing off the wood tones — is really appealing.

Hunting Lodge Chic

Traditional hunting lodge goes chic. | japanesetrash.com

Everything here just works so well; I’d love to have a place like this as a weekend getaway retreat.

Wow Factor

Tons of appealing elements here. | japanesetrash.com

Just about every element in this winter chalet has great wow factor; I think the stone mantle is my favorite.
