I recently went to the Flower Markets with a friend who was busy turning her house into a jungle with neck high house plants. Although this is up there on my ‘if I ever get a a chance’ list, when you travel a lot it’s hard to commit to huge house plants – I feel like it’s like getting a puppy or a rabbit. Somewhat sadly I came home with flowers and a few branches of Monstera leaf – which I put in glass vases and have been thoroughly enjoying ever since. And although this definitely isn’t a difficult ‘DIY’ (bottle/vase + water + leaf = done) I love that these Monstera plants remind me of the Martinique banana print wallpaper in the Beverly Hills Hotel – a touch of tropical without trying too hard. On that note, I’ve been lusting after this banana print one piece, Summer here we come!
Between you and me I have a thing for these Antipodes water bottles – I usually avoid ordering bottles water at restuarants but when I do I always
steal claim these bottles to use as vases.
