Feeling Green | 10 Plant Ideas from IKEA

Every year around this time I start to crave more plants in my home, a natural progression I suppose as winter draws nearer.  But this year it's not only about the upcoming holidays and the forcing of paperwhites, it's the presence of real houseplants, the tried and true.  Here's a few I came across this week from the folks at Livet Hemma and IKEA.  (Above and two below - ANDVANBAR). Let's take a look!

1. The ANDVANBAR Series
A throwback to the 70s, these hanging macrame plant hangers are updated with wooden balls and succulents.  Love the tray version (above).

2. DIY Macrame
It's also easy to make your own version of macrame hangers.  There are heaps of tutorials on YouTube. 



3. Water Plants
We've been noticing a lot of water plants lately.  With roots exposed, this is a pretty way to get some green. See more here.

4. Cactus
The "it" planet of the moment, is also a very easy plant to take care of. Even add some plant pictures to your walls as another option.
