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.

Okay, first off, this is not so much a portfolio review as a post about one specific project of Mr Call Designs — the NYC-based interior design firm of Jon Call, whose relaxed/refined masculine style is nothing short of extra-terrific. Doing a little sleuthing on his Facebook page led me to learn that he’s recently been in Austin; small world…

This project is in the West Village and shows off some amazing skills; from space planning to the selection of furnishings and that terrific color palette, this has to be one of my favorite tours in quite some time.

First, Mr Call himself:

Now, the West Village apartment:

This fireplace with a waterfall mantle treatment is a favorite of mine from Mr Call Designs. | japanesetrash.com

This fireplace with a waterfall mantle treatment is a favorite design; it brings to mind a similar fireplace designed by Thomas O’Brien. Classic and timeless American design.

This shot of the living space shows off the terrific color palette and begins to give a hint at the amazing space planning. Hint: there’s a bedroom on the other side of the slatted screen/wall on the left.

Masterful space planning allows the living room to be converted for dining as needed. Mr Call Designs | japanesetrash.com

The living room can easily accommodate dining when required, thanks to smart furniture choices and great space planning.

A perfect retreat is hidden behind the slatted screen/wall; love these textiles. Mr Call Designs | japanesetrash.com

These textiles, the paint color, and the bedside lamp turn this intimate bedroom space into something really special.
