I’ve always been a big fan of the bright, color-blocked look but despite this, I find myself opting for muted shades when I style my home. This is mainly because I’m trying to be sensible, so I base my choices on thoughts like “it will date better” or “this neutral color will go with everything.” But while that might be true in the long run, it certainly doesn’t make for very interesting home decorating in the here and now!
Enter the humble planter. I’ve found that plant pots are a great way to experiment with changing up the feel of a room because while they can certainly be statement pieces, they’re also relatively small-scale so they don’t overwhelm the rest of my decor. So I reached out to Stephanie Lee of Make and Tell (that’s her below!) to have her help us with a planter DIY to bring a little color into our homes. I hope you’ll enjoy her project as much as I did! –Fran
