I’m quite proud of the green thumb going on over here. It’s a miracle, really! I feel like I’m always forgetting to water these poor babes. We got our first plant a year ago (still alive and well!) and since have expanded to four. One reason to appreciate our apartment’s afternoon humidity, I guess. A splash of nature throughout our space has brought the sunny corners to life. It feels like our very own sanctuary.

I love how as you enter the room, the leaves ease the mood by bringing the outdoors inside. The lush pops of green also play off the sun-faded neutral color palette. They just add so much pretty! I realized this past month, the one thing I have put off is decking them in stylish planters/baskets/ceramics, etc. There’s so much you can do to totally change the vibe.

As a big fan of Farrow & Ball, I jumped at the opportunity to help them celebrate their trend colors for 2017, by testing out one of the colors to DIY my day away this week. I ended up going with one of my favorites, All White 2005, to spruce up a couple of our terra cotta pots. I love this color. We are actually planning on painting our dining room white, and I think we are going to go with this shade. It’s pure and uncomplicated. More on that soon!

It had been a long time since I had a paintbrush in my hand, but I love how the final product turned out. The texture of the brush stroke added a nice homemade touch. I feel so Justina Blakeney and I love it. ?

There’s a reason why so many people love Farrow & Ball, one little pot later and the quality and coverage was clear. If you’re looking to revamp an old dresser, refresh a room in your home, or even a small DIY like this one, I highly recommend this brand. They have the most beautiful colors, too. Wimborne White is up next for a planter… maybe a little cactus?
