11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Not to be put off by lack of surfaces to add my growing plant collection to, I’ve been doing some research on some wonderful new designs that will quite literally elevate your plant collection. Whether you like to mix things up with faux and real, or are an avid green-fingered collector, you really can’t have enough plants to add some instant greenery goodness.

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Plants are continuing to grow in their popularity and it’s really no surprise when you think about it. They not only make our homes sing and come alive with colour and texture, they’re good for our wellbeing too. Designers are acknowledging our love affair with houseplants and are ensuring that we can show them off to their best advantage. They’ve also taken on board the fact that our living spaces are getting smaller. Today I’ve tracked down 11 designs that tackle the need and want to display your treasured plants even if space is limited.

Vertical Flowerpots by Trimm Copenhagen

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Vertical Flowerpots by Trimm Copenhagen – Monoqi

These Vertical Flowerpots are both practical and decorative and provide your homes with a fab alternative to the classic flowerpot. They’re also versatile as you can mix it up a little and use some of the pots as handy storage as well as displaying your plants. Perfect for home offices or busy kitchens where work surfaces are fighting to be clutter-free and can often be limited.

I’m also thinking you could get creative and create a hanging garden room divider by utilising several hung in a row. If you read my Open Plan Living & Sound, you’ll know that plants are great at absorbing sound!

Each flower-pot is made of coated water-repellent fabric and is fixed by a rope with two snap hooks so you can easily remove the pots individually. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use. A space-saving and flexible solution to bringing some greenery into your homes. They’re also available in different colours. Available from Monoqi on sale at £74


Brass Planter With Leather Straps

Brass Planter With Leather Straps – Ohwhatsthis

I’m loving the contrast of textures the brass and the leather with this hanging planter. Both materials offer longevity and it’s a good size at 21 x 47cm perfect for those mid-sized plants. Price £95


Concrete Gold Brass Hanging Planter Plant Pot Pipe Vase

Concrete Gold Brass Hanging Planter Plant Pot Pipe Vase – Madewithlovedesigns

What’s not to love about these cute on-trend grey concrete mini vases with their contrasting shiny trim of gold brass.  If you’re wanting to add to your mini succulent collection, then these would be perfect. You can, of course, stand them but they do come with a natural twine hanger so the choice is yours. They’re also great doubled up as mini storage pots to keep the likes of desk areas tidy. And at £14.95, they’re an affordable treat for you and your home.


Bloomingville Flora Terrarium Pendant Light

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Flora Terrarium Pendant Light – Beaumonde

A pendant light with a difference. This innovative design by Bloomingville incorporates a terrarium for plant lovers. I love the combination of its curved forms and geometric lines that encapsulates both light and plant creating a unique display. It’d certainly brighten up a dark corner and offer your plant a light source too. Made from iron and glass and priced at £85.00

Uyova Metal Wall Planter – Laredoute

With a nod to the Art Deco style, we’ve seen emerging, this Uyova Metal Wall Planter will add instant glamour to your walls. I’m loving the on-trend teal colour but there’s also a pink version if you prefer a softer colour. Both are finished with a brass detail bracket.  The planter is removable too which always makes life easier for watering and deadheading. Or why not add your favourite faux plant. It’s also currently on sale at £16.50.


Leopard Wall Vase – Audenza

Leopard Wall Vase – Audenza

For those that are loving all things leopard, this wall vase by Audenza will be a great one to add to your collection. It may not be the new pair of shoes you were after in your favourite print but it certainly cost less at £29.95  It’s handpainted and there’s also a matching tall standing vase.


Simple Blackened Pot On Stand

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Simple Blackened Pot On Stand – Theforestandco

I’m loving the array of new designs coming out of plant pots on stands. This one particularly caught my eye as I’ve been stalking The Forest & Co. website when researching for circular mirrors, which I hasten to add we still haven’t decided upon!!

Anyways, this plant stand is great if you’re looking for a solidsturdy and virtually unbreakable number as it’s made of iron. Particularly good if you have little ones who have a habit of pulling things over. The pot itself is made from aluminium so we’re looking at a piece that’s going to last! Prices start at £95 so an investment piece that will survive the coming trends due to its simplistic form and being black means it’ll fit in with any changes of decor. This one is going on my wishlist!

Magnetic China Herb Planter by LAHLA STUDIO

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Magnetic China Herb Planter by LAHLA STUDIO – Notonthehighstreet

If space is limited in the kitchen, then you could grow a vertical herb garden on your fridge, kitchen boiler or noticeboard. This wall planter uses the magic of magnets that will attach itself to any flat steel surface and can hold up 200g in weight which is more than enough for a herb plant. Made from bone china, handcrafted in Stoke-On-Trent. Sold individually £24.


Planter with Metal Stand – Matalan

Planter With Metal Stand – Matalan

If you’re looking for a more affordable stand to elevate your plants, this simple one from Matalan, could be a contender as it’s a steal at £12!! It’s a great way to introduce some metallic glamour to your homes and forms part of Matalans Nomad Folk trend.

Black Metal Tray On Legs

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Large Black Metal Tray On Legs – The Forest & Co

Ok so this is a tray on legs, but how versatile is this design. It’s deep enough to house several plants together to create your own miniature garden. Of course, you don’t have to use it to display all your plants. Because the tray is removable it makes a great vessel for transporting your morning cuppa and biscuit stash with a plant or two (depending on the number of biscuits that is).  The contrast between wood and metals surfaces appeals to my love affair with texture and is neutral enough to look fabulous in most homes, particularly rustic modern and scandi styles.

It’s a brand new design to The Forest & Co and will be available within the next few weeks. You can pre-order now. I think it’s going to be a best seller myself! Available in two sizes and prices start at £65.


Copper and Birch Plywood Plant Stand / Indoor Garden / Plant Display Bench

11 Ways To Elevate Your Houseplants

Copper and Birch Plywood Plant Stand / Indoor Garden / Plant Display Bench – Littledeer

This final design is one for the dedicated green-fingered plant lovers amongst you. As you can basically create a whole indoor jungalow party area in your home with this unique display bench.  It’s been designed and made in Brighton by Little Deer who I’ve featured before with their rather unique alternative clothes rail design. It’s made from beautiful copper and birch plywood. And you don’t need to worry about the copper tarnishing as Little Deer treat and coat their products to ensure they keep their rose gold colour and shine.

There are two choices available from frame only to Frame adorned with macrame and plants. They also offer a bespoke service if you require different measurements. Little Deer will also help you with plant advice once purchased.  A unique design and personal service, that’s why I love small independent businesses! Price From: £220


Have your wish lists grown, I know mine have ;)

Have a wonderful weekend where ever you are and thanks for stopping by!
