Isn’t is great how much of a thing it is nowadays to have an abundance of indoor plants? Of course, it’s good for your health, but it’s also so nice to be able to get a little Jumanji (the Robin Williams version, obviously) and we’ll admit to finding it a little bit addictive – how many pot plants is too many pot plants?
That is the question.
Ivy Muse is their name, and botanical wares is their game.
Regardless of whether you’re capable of keeping a plant alive, Ivy Muse are here to help – because if it’s a thing to bring something new indoors, plant styling is the natural next step – duh.
Matching pots or eclectic? Should you mix ferns in a room with flowers? Do hanging pots look weird inside? There really are a lot of questions.
The ladies behind Ivy Muse create plant stands and source pots locally, available inshore and online, and have successfully published ‘IVY MUSE: Plant Style: How to greenify your space’ to guide all of the green-thumbed but a teense clueless homemakers on the best way forward indoors.
If you’re Melbourne-based, you also are lucky enough to have easy access to the Ladies’ personal plant styling services, which if you’re lacking a little creativity, or on the market, might save you a lot of time and brain ache.
Their gram features some of their favourite pots, pot plant stands, and wall hangers from their own collection, as well as other plant-based inspo, all showing how simple and lovely it can be to splash a little green against some exposed board, or on a well-placed chair. On the other hand, they share some seriously amazing, dramatically plant-filled rooms that feel every bit the gardeners’ greenhouse wonderland.
If you’ve never had so much as a pet rock before, there’s always the option of a little fake greenery – but if you can manage a little watering, take a leaf out of the Ivy Muse ladies’ book (literally) and let your home get an extra dose of natural zen.
Nan taught us that if you talk to the plants while you’re watering them, they’ll last longer 😉
