POTTED PLANTS FOR INTERIOR DECOR

potted plants for interior decor

Incorporating plants and foliage into interior decor is one of the loveliest ways to create a natural home and to bring an interior to life. Plants, flowers and foliage, whether fresh or dried add colour and texture to a room, creating a natural look and feel. In addition to adding texture and colour, potted plants add life into a home, not only contributing to the look of the room but also changing how it feels to spend time within it.

As part of creating a natural home, we have wanted to introduce plant pots for potted plants into our product offer for quite some time now. We are pleased to introduce our new range of handmade terracotta plant pots.

FINDING TIME TO FEED OUR SOULS

Finding Time to Feed our Souls

There is a tension within modern Western culture between the hurried, busy state of the realities of modern life and the slow, meaningful pursuit of the experiences and knowledge that add up to a life well lived.

MINDFUL MOMENTS THAT MAKE THE ORDINARY FEEL EXTRAORDINARY

INGREDIENTS LDN making the ordinary feel extraordinary

Every single moment is rich in sensation or emotion when we learn how to attend it more fully. Making ordinary everyday moments feel special can help our mind to learn to focus on the present moment and to begin to notice all the wonderful little details that evade us when we are swept up in mind-wandering.

IMPERFECTIONS AND THE TRACES LEFT BY THE PASSAGE OF TIME

IMPERFECTIONS AND THE PASSAGE OF TIME

Our popular culture favours the new over the old, perfection and homogeneity over the quirks and idiosyncrasies that make things unique. A rigid focus on perfection can be problematic because it is often intertwined with a rejection of things that do not conform to this standard. But by cultivating a more diverse appreciation of beauty, one which makes room for imperfections and signs of age, we begin to develop a more healthy and sustainable aesthetic. We discuss this topic and show some of the signs of wear that our beautiful Blackline Cutting Boards naturally acquire with time and use.
