Bits & Pieces: Styling a tiered plant holder

May 26, 2016

A few weeks ago it was Tom and I’s 4th anniversary – wow how time flies! One of the gifts he got me was a gorgeous, rustic wooden 3-tiered plant stand. It’s like a tiny a frame step-ladder. I love it, how well he knows me. I instantly thought of about a million different ways I could style it (potential future post alert!) so I thought I’d show you how it’s set up currently.

(apologies for blurry photos taken directly into a window – it’s been a busy week!)

As you can see I’ve mostly stuck with the plant theme, but I’ve also incorporated some of my copper barware. Tom also got me that pineapple goblet from Oliver Bonas to match my storage jar – I now refuse to drink from anything else! I’ve added a few glass knick knacks, a coloured bottle and cute mini coloured bottles (which actually hang on the Christmas tree).

That Bombay Sapphire bottle actually contains loads of fairy lights and was a gift from some friends – it looks so pretty when it’s all lit up. Also, forgive me for not getting around to re-potting my succulents before taking pictures.

And the copper obsession continues, these Moscow mule mugs give a great pop of metallic colour against the greenery. That big succulent is actually in a hanging planter from Urban Outfitter’s that’s destined for our hallway picture shelves.

I can imagine I will be changing this area up a lot to incorporate different colours and themes. I’m now on the look out for a great trailing plant that can hang over the shelves, what ever happened to Spider plants? Growing up my mum had them everywhere but now I can’t find them in any garden centre, they’d be perfect – plus they’re virtually un-killable – win!

Also, here’s an exclusive sneak peak….

That’s right people, my kitchen is complete!!! Well, almost, I just need to get the tiles done. As soon as that’s sorted and we’ve painted our weird patchy walls I will do a full reveal, I am so excited! In the meantime here’s a picture of my new floating shelves (which aren’t properly styled yet) and a close up of my little rustic wooden kitchenware corner. I can’t tell you how great it is to have a working kitchen sink again.

I am off to Vienna tomorrow for a cheeky long weekend away to celebrate (hence the rushed photography – sorry!) so I’ll see you all next week.

Love, Sarah x
