Plant Inspiration follows and hash tags
I often get asked where I find the inspiration for my products and my space. I spend a LOT of time looking at pictures. Images help me think. If I get stuck with an idea then I very often put together a few images that help me create a mood. I find it gives me an easy way of saying 'yeah ok, that feels right (or not)' Then I go away and think about what's right for me.
My Instagram saves keep growing so I thought it was about time I shared some of my favourites. I've got a list as long as your arm so I'm going to divide and conquer, and I'm starting with plants and greenery.
Plants are a big part my life and my home is pretty jungly. I propagate and divide when I can so it's ever increasing. Growing steadily. I try to seek out interesting and quirky ones (funny looking cacti and straggly vine-like hanging ones are favourites). Finding the right pots is an ongoing project; vintage ones, studio pottery...I find them, buy then, sell them (or keep them).
And it's a family affair. There's nothing sweeter than my 6 year old son insisting on sitting in the 'table jungle' to eat his breakfast. He feels the love too.
Plant love might be a huge trend right now but growing and nurturing plants is as old as the hills and we're learning how to make it work for our spaces. I think they are good for my soul and I love the way they make my space feel alive. They are with me for life now.
I've chosen these follows and hashtags because despite their difference in style they all have things in common; great photography, collected and created content, strong visual stories (some big projects and some down to earth, everyday ideas). Some are photographers, some plant stores, some makers and some are people with a plant story to tell.
There are some products on here, but I don't sell them and I'm not endorsing any other business. It's all just stuff that I found that I like. Hope you do to. Happy scrolling!
