Hanging planters

Hanging planters by Light + Ladder | These Four Walls blog

There’s a pesky little corner of my kitchen that’s very hard to dress – it’s too small to do much with, but it looks very stark without any decoration. I’ve decided to liven it up by adding a bit of greenery, and I’m keen to use some of the funky hanging planters which seem to be everywhere at the moment.

There are some fantastic examples to choose from. The ceramic versions shown above and below are all by Light + Ladder; I love the idea of filling them with herbs ready to be plucked for cooking, or with succulents or orchids, both of which tend to do very well in a steamy kitchen environment.

I’m also taken with these tiny hanging vases from Rowen & Wren, which would look amazing cascading down the wall with a variety of seasonal blooms:

The other alternative is to use air plants – delicate little specimens which take their nutrients from the air around them. They don’t need any soil, so they can be displayed in all sorts of quirky ways – even upside down. I particularly love the air-plant holders below, by Ohalbatross, Hruskaa and Light + Ladder:

Which option do you prefer? Have you tried using hanging planters at all?
