Products I {Heart}: Monochromatic Planters

There’s an old saying that says, “Less is more.” This is true in many instances. (My mom used to remind me of this when I was learning to apply makeup, when I was eying heels with a little too much sex appeal, or when I wanted to buy a shirt with too much “bling.”) However, I can’t think of many situations where that saying is truer than with plants. Neutral planters allow the beauty of the plant to shine through, making a simple, elegant statement.

When I started my journey with houseplants, I didn’t have a clear vision for how I wanted to display my plants or the type of message I wanted them to send. I simply bought whatever I liked at the moment, and shoved my plants in the pots accordingly. However, the more I work with plants and gather inspiration from others (specifically on Instagram), the more I find myself drawn towards neutral colors – specifically the monochromatic palette of white, black, and gray.
