Concrete... plants and coffee | new years resolution #1

I made a few new years resolutions and one of them is adding some more greens to my home... I am not really following trends as in changing things at home because it is the latest trend but I guess we pick up things, and sometimes there's a moment you suddenly know how you could translate inspiration into something new for your home.

Lately we see a little revival of 70ties plants and plants in general, not only in our homes, complete with macrame plant hangers or plant stands, but also on posters and fabric. And with monthly emails from Igor and Judith from Urban Jungle bloggers I decided to give it a go and really join the club this month, so here is to plants and coffee and #UrbanJunglebloggers.

Plants as decoration

I personally see plants as a decoration object and inspired by plants in terrariums and the small Christmas trees without soil, I filled my large glass vase with water and put in a small green plant, in Holland we call them house- pines, but I am sure there is a fancy English name for it, what do you think ... do you like it?

More greens at home, perfect idea ^_^
Does this house-pine stay alive just in water? It looks really good ^_^

@Michael It is there for over 5 weeks now and still looking the same, I changed the water once... I do wonder if i should add something to the water to feed the plants needs.

Wat leuk dat je mee doet, Désirée! En wat een mooi voornemen ;) Trendy of niet, groen in huis is gewoon heel fijn en nog gezond ook. Ben benieuwd naar je volgende plant(en)! xx

Hi Desiree, nice to see you joining UJB! The fern pine is lovely and no idea what you'd call it in English? I'm not one to be a slave to trends but this plant one has got me well and truly. Mel:)

Yes I like it all. We all need a tree (at least 1) in our home!!! They're essential!

And lots and lots and lots of natural grey/green stuff!

Moss and lichen covered sticks and twigs I adore!
